“I told the guys already, man. The mindset’s already been checked in. It’s ready to go,” defensive end Jurrell Casey said. “There’s no way we can lose next week. Jurrell Casey’s going to show up and show out. As long as everybody does that, and follows in, baby, we’re going to have a good one. Emotions are crazy right now. It’s unbelievable. Everybody in this locker room understands what’s at hand… If we come out and play Titans football, we’ll come out and be in the Super Bowl — definitely.”
Betting Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs beat the Houston Texans 51-31 as 10-point home chalk as the spread went at the best sportsbooks for US players. Kansas City allowed 21 points to nothing in the first quarter. But Pat Mahomes soon made with the pass-fu and threw four TD passes in the second. Mahomes finished 23 of 35 for 321 yards with five TDs, no picks, and no sacks. He added 53 rushing yards on seven carries. Tight end Travis Kelce had 134 yards and three TDs on 10 catches. The Chiefs were outgained 434 total yards to 442 (348 to 316 in passing). But held the Texans to 94 rushing yards and gained 118 of their own on the ground.
KC is 4-0 ATS in their last four games after gaining more than 250 yards passing in their previous game. 5-0 ATS in their last five games after gaining more than 350 total yards in their previous game. And 5-0 ATS in their last five games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game.
“Obviously we didn’t want to be in that spot, but I think the biggest thing I was preaching to the team was let’s go do something special,” Mahomes said following the comeback win. “Let’s go do something special. Everybody is already counting us out. Let’s just go play by play and put our best effort out there. Obviously, I knew that as a team everything had to go the right way.”
Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs Pick
This is a tough one. The Chiefs are the more talented team on paper. But the Titans use such paper to wipe their collective ass. Is it too late to jump on the Tennessee bandwagon? I think the Titans can finish what the Texans started. So let’s get the Nashville gravy train a-rolling!
