The (1-1) Tennessee Titans of the AFC South Division will travel to the “SHOW ME STATE” to play the (2-0) Kansas City Chiefs of the AFC West in 2015 NFL Preseason action. The team will play on Friday, August 28th, 2015 at 8:00 PM EST. The Tennessee Titans organization believes they have found their franchise quarterback. 2015 second overall draft pick Marcus Mariota is a natural leader with a level of maturity beyond his years. The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to overtake the Denver Broncos in AFC West supremacy. Everything is in place for one of the most talented teams in the NFL. The opening betting line has Tennessee as a five and a half-point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The betting odds total is 43-points for Friday’s game.
The 2015 Tennessee Titans beat St.Louis 27-14 in their week two home opener. The Titans are sold on their Mariota, who threw for fifty-nine yards before giving way to Zach Mettenberger, Charlie Whitehurst, and Alex Tanney. The 2014 Heisman Trophy winner has already been named the open day starter. Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt praises Mariota as a scrambler but wants him to keep his eyes downfield. Offensive Coordinator Jason Michael will hold nothing back from the signal caller. Marcus will get plenty of looks against a tough Kansas City defense on Friday Night. The Titans organization has upgraded the skilled positions. In particular the wideouts. Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas and veteran Hakeem Nicks will help tremendously. Second round draft choice Dorial Green-Beckham and Kendall Wright add depth and speed. Former Chiefs Running Back/Punt Returner Dexter McCluster is also an option of offense. 2014 draft pick Bishop Sankey is expected to have a breakout season. Tennessee is going to be better than expert predict. The Titans defense was terrible in 2014, but linebackers Derrick Morgan, Brian Orakpo and Wesley Woodyard are exceptional. Former 49ers cornerback Perrish Cox returned an interception for a touchdown against St.Louis. Safety Michael Griffin is the signal caller in the secondary and is underrated.
Head Coach Andy Reid enter his third season on the sidelines in Kansas City. The team has all the makings to contend for a Superbowl title. Quarterback Alex Smith and running back Jamaal Charles are as athletic as any players in the league. The team also signed wideout Jeremy Maclin, who Reid drafted in Philadelphia. Macklin brings speed to a position that many say have been the team’s liability the past few seasons. Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson plans to use Maclin in a variety of ways. The offense will be more creative with the St.Louis, Missouri native lining up all over the field. The Kansas City defense has the talent to dominate each and every game. Tamba Hali and Justin Houston can get to the opposing quarterback at will. Inside linebacker Derrick Johnson is one of the best at his position in the NFL. The University of Texas product missed the entire 2014 season after suffering an Achilles injury. The Kansas City secondary welcomes Eric Berry back into the mix. 2015 first round draft pick Marcus Peters has the potential to be great.
