Though the standings show that the Kansas City Chiefs remain undefeated, the Tennessee Titans were a few plays away from knocking the leaders of the AFC West out of first place. Entering Sunday’s game, the Tennessee Titans were looking to become the first team in NFL history to not record a turnover through the first five games of the season.  The Kansas City defense had other plans forcing three turnovers on the day. Despite the minimal offensive production by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Titans offense, the Chiefs were held to two field goals in the first half of Sunday’s bout in Tennessee.  With a 13-0 lead going into the half, special teamer Marcus Cooper scored the lone touchdown of the half after a punt ricocheted off the leg of Damian Williams sending the football into the Tennessee end zone. In addition to the special teams mishap, head coach Mike Munchak elected to go for it on 4th and goal from the one-inch line with four minutes to goal in the second quarter.  As (add position) Jackie Battle attempted to cross the line of scrimmage, he was immediately stuffed by a slew of Chiefs defenders.  The Chiefs went on to kick a field goal to end the half, completing the ten-point swing. In the absence of Jake Locker, Ryan Fitzpatrick was not expected to run the Tennessee offense in a similar fashion.  However, the veteran quarterback put on a gutsy performance using his legs to move the offense down the field. Fitzpatrick showed poise and explosiveness coming out of the locker room for the second half.  Finishing the day as the team’s leading rusher, Fitzpatrick rushed for 50 yards on six carries and a rushing touchdown to give the Titans the lead for the first time in the game. The Tennessee offense stifled the Kansas City defense on the first two drives of the second half, with the help of Rob Bironas’s leg and Chris Johnson’s speed in the open field.  After what looked like a sack, Fitzpatrick managed to flip the ball to Johnson, leading to a 48-yard touchdown reception. Jamaal Charles (Photo credit: Mark Zaleski/AP) The Titans had trouble keeping the pressure on after these two drives giving up 13 points in the fourth quarter including a touchdown to Jamaal Charles who also rushed for 108 yards on 22 carries. Heading into Week 6 with three wins still exceeds the preseason expectations for Tennessee, but a trip to Seattle and the wrath of the 12th man is looming.
