Kansas City vs. Tennessee: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

Benjamin AllbrightContributor IOctober 6, 2013

The Kansas city Chiefs defeated the Tennessee titans 26-17 Sunday. Kansas City moves to 5-0, and at worst a tie for first place in the AFC West.  The Chiefs would gain sole possession of first in the AFC West if the Denver Broncos were to lose to the Dallas Cowboys.

The game was sloppy and plagued by a plethora of penalty flags, but the Chiefs stingy defense, and opportunistic offense made the most of the chances given to them by the Titans, and sealed the game late in the fourth quarter with kicker Ryan Succop's fourth field goal of the day.

Kansas City moved the ball effectively most of the game, but struggled on third down conversions, going 1-for-12 on third down attempts on the game.

On defense the Chiefs forced two Tennessee fumbles, and picked off Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was starting in place of the injured Jake Locker, twice.  Kansas City finished with three sacks on the game, but could have doubled that total with surer-handed tackling in the backfield during the game.

The Chiefs are back home in Kansas City to take on the Oakland Raiders next, on October 13th.
