Titans vs. Chiefs 2022 NFL Week 9 Odds, Preview & Pick

By Hank Blaine

It’s a potential playoff preview on Sunday night this week as division leaders Tennessee and Kansas City face off at Arrowhead Stadium. The big question surrounds Titans QB Ryan Tannehill.

The teams met Week 7 last year in Nashville and the Titans rolled 27-3. Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 21-of-27 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown in the contest, while running back Derrick Henry ran for 86 yards on 29 carries, and he also threw a touchdown pass. Receiver A.J. Brown caught eight passes for 133 yards and a touchdown.

On the team’s opening drive, the Titans drove the ball right down the field and capped off an eight-play, 75-yard drive with a touchdown. The opener score: A five-yard touchdown toss from Henry, who lined up in the Wildcat formation, to tight end MyCole Pruitt. After a defensive stop, the Titans got revved up again – and produced again. A 46-yard toss from Tannehill to Brown jump-started a nine-play, 97-yard drive that was capped off with a 24-yard touchdown toss to Brown with just 42 seconds left in the first quarter to give the Titans a 14-0 lead. Really the game was over.

The winner of this contest will hold sole possession of the No. 2 seed for now behind the Buffalo Bills — a team that beat both the Chiefs and Titans in 2022 — and will own the all-important head-to-head tie-breaker.

Why Bet on the Tenneessee Titans?

Philadelphia has won all five previous meetings between the two clubs.

Tennessee won its fifth in a row Sunday, 17-10 in Houston. Derrick Henry rushed for 219 yards and two touchdowns. It was Henry’s fourth straight 200-yard game against the Texans, making him the first player in NFL history to have at least 150 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in four consecutive games against the same opponent. The 28-year-old has six 200-yard games in his career, tying O.J. Simpson and Adrian Peterson for the most in NFL history.

Rookie QB Malik Willis completed 6-of-10 passes for 55 yards and an interception – he started with Ryan Tannehill out with an ankle injury. He hasn’t practiced fully as of Thursday but is likely to play.

“Pain is going to be there, that’s just kind of where we’re at with it. Unfortunately, with the nature of the injury, it kind of is there. So, it’s just going to be a matter of if I can do my job, or if I can’t,” Tannehill said.

The Titans still have a lengthy injured reserve list, but some of those players have been eligible to return for weeks now, including wide receiver Racey McMath and cornerback Elijah Molden. The Titans could use all the help they can get in their lackluster receiving corps. As a rookie in 2021, Molden appeared in 16 games with seven starts. He ranked fifth on the team and first among Titans rookies with 60 tackles and one interception for a touchdown.

Why Bet on the Kansas City Chiefs?

Kansas City comes off its bye week at 5-2 like the Titans. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he will “try to work him [Kadarius Toney] in” against the Titans. Toney was acquired in trade from the Giants and was practicing this week after missing weeks of practice prior to his trade. The 23-year-old Toney was a first-round pick a little more than a year ago, as he was the fourth wide receiver taken in the 2021 NFL Draft behind only Ja’Marr Chase, Jaylen Waddle and DeVonta Smith. The Chiefs also activated CB Trent McDuffie (hamstring) from injured reserve. McDuffie was designated for return on October 12th and has been practicing with the Chiefs ever since. The 2022 first-round pick was injured in the team’s Week 1 win over the Cardinals, but will now make his long-awaited return to the field. Obviously the KC game plan defensively is to slow the Titans’ Henry. Recently named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for October, Henry has averaged over five yards per carry on 112 rushing attempts over the past month.

“Yeah, there are going to be things that you’re going to do to try and stop him. I think the whole NFL has tried that somewhere,” Reid said. “He’s a great player, and you’re not going to stop him on every play. You just want to get him – you want to get the numbers up where it’s reasonable of stops and so he’s a good one. I know our guys will be fired up for it and they’re going to work their tails off this week to play against him because he’s, like I said he’s a future Hall of Fame player. You get excited about that.”
