AFC Championship: Titans-Chiefs open thread

Derrick Henry and the Titans travel to Kansas City in the AFC Championship.

NFL: AFC Divisional Round-Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans have seemingly miraculously advanced to the AFC Championship in which they’ll face the Kansas City Chiefs and their high-octane offense. The Titans are carried (no pun intended) on offense by running back Derrick Henry, who has been unstoppable in recent weeks, averaging 188 yards per game in the playoffs. The Chiefs on the other hand are an air-raid attack led by the chemistry of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and wide receiver Tyreek Hill, the best of a loaded receiving corps.

The odds are certainly in the Chiefs’ favor, especially with one of the strongest home field advantages in the NFL. It’s impossible to write off the Titans, however, especially considering the Chiefs’ weakest area is likely their run defense and the Titans have cast aside the doubters in back to back weeks.

I’m really not sure what to expect from this game aside from a very entertaining match. Who are you picking? Let’s hear it.
