Can the Chiefs stop Henry? Can the Titans limit the Chiefs high powered offense? 

 

Hoping to see the Titans in the Bowl but my Money is on the Chiefs. 41-21

Just hoping Pat Mahomes can deliver a similar game as he did last week.

Did Tyreek Hill really just pretend like he was a dog and urinate?  WTF?  Didn't some college kid get a penalty during some game recently for that and it cost his team the win?  Hill's got enough image issues, it just seems immature and senseless.  Maybe I'm completely off and just being an old man about this.

I don't understand why other teams couldn't stop Derrick Henry.  Stack 8 in the box and make Tannehill beat you.  Make him throw more than 15 times in a game.  Why is that hard to understand for these other teams that have been unsuccessful.

Won't matter if the Chiefs can be as explosive as last week. Which I think they need to be because I don't see any team containing Henry an entire game.

Henry is a huge back that wears defenses down. With close games he punishes the defense. And in the 2nd halves of games they are worn out. He breaks a long run nearly every game. Dude is a beast.

Not sure about this years stats, but in 2018, Henry averaged 5 yards a carry when facing 8 or more in the box. I do think Tannehill will have to step it up for the Titans to have a chance. Chief will most likely put up 30+ points.

Many people don’t realize Henry has always excelled against stacked boxes - it’s a common misconception

Misconception or not, it would seem to be proper strategy when the RB is clearly the better talent than the QB.

So was it Mariota that has been holding Henry back all this time?

That’s why most DCs elect to do it - not because it’s the right strategy
