This game meant a lot more to the Chiefs than the Titans, and it showed.
Matt Cassell threw three touchdowns in the first half and finished with 314 yards and no interceptions to lead the Kansas City Chiefs within a game of clinching the AFC West.
Tennesse was outgained 458 to 270 and managed only 57 yards on the ground on 16 attempts. The Titans played an uninspired game as they missed tackles, dropped passes, and made a handful of mental mistakes.
With a 24-7 lead late in the first half, Eric Berry picked off a Kerry Collins pass and took it 54 yards to take a 31-7 lead and hand the Titans their seventh loss in eight games. Collins was 14 for 37 with 235 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The sole highlight for the Titans came on a 53 yard touchdown pass to Kenny Britt which helped Collins become only the 12th quarterback to eclipse 40,000 career yards.
Dwayne Bowe had a game high 153 receiving yards as he torched the Titans secondary with six receptions and a touchdown.
It’s safe to say that the wheels have finally fallen off the bus for the Tennessee Titans, as fights nearly broke out at several points in the game. The frustration boiled over and resulted in nine penalties for 74 yards, including three personal foul penalties, proving again why they are one of the most penalized teams in the league.
The loss dropped the Titans to 6-9 on the season, after starting 5-2. Tennessee will end the season at Indianapolis, once again traveling to an AFC opponent with more than just a job to play for.
