{} This Sunday in Week 16 of the 2010 NFL regular season, the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tennessee Titans who are currently third in the AFC South at 6-8-0. Compared to the Chiefs who are at the top of their division at the AFC West with a 9-5-0 record. In recent Chiefs news, Kansas City Chiefs running Thomas Jones became the 25th NFL player to rush for 10,000 career yards, reaching the mark during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. We also saw Cassel go the distance only 11 days after an emergency appendectomy, leading the way in a 27-13 victory over the suddenly sagging St. Louis Rams on Sunday. He didn't think it was a big deal, either. The Chiefs have been strong this season only losing once since Week 10. They lost in Week 14 to the San Diego Chargers in a shut out game that ended with a jarring final score of 0-31.

The Titans have only won 1 game since Week 7, ouch. Although they have managed to keep their playoff hopes alive with a 31-17 victory at LP Field over the Houston Texans. QB Kerry Collins directed touchdown drives on the team’s first three possessions of the game, forcing the Texans to play from well behind for the duration of the game. But Tennessee’s defense registered four sacks and one interception, allowing the team to limit the Texans to a mear 30 yards rushing on 17 attempts, which averages out to 1.8.

Online Sportsbook lists the Titans as the plus 5 point underdogs for this post-Christmas matchup, with the total over under at 42 points.

Tennessee’s big-play wide receiver Kenny Britt looks healthy again and that could be a problem for the Chiefs, who may have to send an extra defender to the line of scrimmage in wait for Chris Johnson. Britt could see some single coverage and has to win that battle when he does. Tennessee’s leading tackler Stephan Tulloch needs to have a big game against the league’s number one rushing attack. The Chiefs will come at Tulloch early and often. They’ve had 39 or more rushing attempts in three of their last four games, so Tulloch needs to be as solid in the fourth quarter as he is in the first.

As for the Chiefs, DE Wallace Gilberry. has emerged as a legitimate second pass rush option to Tamba Hali last week when he had three sacks against the Rams. But Gilberry can’t be a one-time star. They need him to be productive against the Titans, a team that has allowed only 23 sacks. Even if he doesn’t get QB Kerry Collins on the ground, Gilberry must help rush Collins into some throws. Then there is LT Branden Albert. He will at times be called to block Jason Babin, one of the league leaders in sacks. While improved this season, Albert hasn’t been as consistent as the Chiefs would like. He can’t allow Babin to ruin Kansas City’s day.
