Locker goes down as the Tennessee Titans continue to surprise

Though the Tennessee Titans pulled off an impressive 38-13 win over the New York Jets this past Sunday, this beating has been overlooked due to the injury to Jake Locker. It has been reported that Locker will miss at least three games after being careened off of Jets’ defensive linemen, Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples with 11:14 left in the third quarter of Sunday’s game...

CB Alterraun Verner named AFC defensive player of the week

According to Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com, Tennessee Titans CB Alterraun Verner has been named AFC defensive player of the week.

Backup QB turned starter takes over for Titans

Ryan Fitzpatrick likes how he looks with a bushy beard, it makes him feel comfortable. Now, about to make his first start in Tennessee with Jake Locker sidelined with a sprained hip, Fitzpatrick is a little upset with himself for shaving his face clean a month ago. His current beard isn't nearly as impressive, and Fitzpatrick needs any edge he can get. ''It's never...

Locker's condition encourages Titans

The Titans received welcome reassurance on quarterback Jake Locker’s hip injury after a second MRI on Tuesday. The team said Locker officially has been diagnosed with a sprained hip confirmed that he will not require surgery to fix the problem and said that “we certainly would expect him to miss a few weeks but we are encouraged by the news today.” The Tennessean reported...

Titans, Chiefs winning through lots of turnovers

Safety Michael Griffin has a theory on why teammate Alterraun Verner has been a one-man turnover machine. Maybe, just maybe the Titans ticked Verner off when they opened up his cornerback job for competition this offseason. It's Verner's job for sure now, and he's leading the NFL with six takeaways all by himself. He's a big reason why the Titans (3-1) and undefeated...

McCluster finding niche with new Chiefs regime

Dexter McCluster figures he watched his shake-and-baking punt return about 500 times, a dynamic touchdown run last Sunday that helped his Kansas City Chiefs beat the New York Giants. Don't think for a second that he was exaggerating, either. McCluster fades back to field the kick late in the third quarter, with the Chiefs clinging to a field-goal lead. He moves to his left...

The Kansas City Chiefs are like a first job

Alex Smith (Photo credit: Ed Zurga/AP) Unless you were born with a silver spoon and you’ve managed to stay independently wealthy your entire life, you’ve had a first job. With zero work experience and probably at a young age, it most likely wasn’t anything glamorous. Stocking shelves, busing tables, delivering newspapers, shoveling excrement, the list goes on. It wasn’t flashy...

Chiefs begin preparing for Titans without Charles

The Kansas City Chiefs were missing several key players, including Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles, as they began preparing for Sunday's game at Tennessee. Charles missed Wednesday's workout because of blisters on his feet. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he believes Charles will be ready to go against the Titans. Top cornerback Brandon Flowers remained out of practice...

Kansas City Chiefs: 2013 Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 12 (+5) Record: 4-0 The Chiefs aren’t in the top-4 with the other 4-0 teams because their opponents have a combined record of 3-13. They’ve faced 3/4s of arguably the worst division in football, the NFC East, along with a Jacksonville team that’s worse than any team since the 2008 Lions and even that’s a debate. They won’t be able to rely on winning the turnover...

The Secret To Kansas City's Success

At the end of last season, two teams within the AFC West proved how inequitable the NFL can be. The Denver Broncos won the division with a 13-3 record, beating nearly every team in their path, including a flawless 6-0 record against their own division. The Kansas City Chiefs, on the other hand, were quite the opposite: they finished dead last in the NFL with a 2-14 record, losing...
