NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Titans (4-2) host the Kansas City Chiefs (3-3) on Sunday. Both teams are looking to build off of their respective Week 6 wins over the Buffalo Bills (4-2) and the Washington Football Team (2-4).

A win for Tennessee would help them gain ground on the two teams seeded ahead of them in the AFC postseason standings. Currently, the Titans are No. 3 behind the Los Angeles Chargers (4-2) and Baltimore Ravens (5-1). Kansas City is currently one spot out of the last wildcard spot in the expanded postseason format.

A victory in Tennessee would come as a great help to the Chiefs.

Beating Buffalo down on Monday Night Football rallied NFL media around the country to the cause of running back Derrick Henry’s case for MVP. The Bills win also served as a defining moment for a Titans team that is still looking to find its consistency. Both Julio Jones and A.J. Brown are expected to be back in the line-up together for a second consecutive game. Tennessee having their full compliment of top skill position players will make all the difference in the world.

Kansas City’s defense is ripe for the taking. The Chiefs are allowing a league-low 6.7 yards per play and have the 28th-ranked scoring defense (29.3).

On this week’s episode of The Install, Greg Cosell of NFL Films takes you through the strengths and weaknesses of the Titans against Kansas City. Tennessee is currently a 4.5-point underdog at home, per DraftKings Sportsbook.

Cosell’s analysis of what is happening with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes right now is must-listen.

The only NFL team with a worse turnover differential than Kansas City (-8) is the Jacksonville Jaguars (-10). Only New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has thrown more interceptions (9) than Mahomes this season. Cosell breaks down Mahomes’ struggles, why Henry’s three-touchdown performance was not the sole source of the Titans success against the Bills and what allowed Tennessee quarterback Ryan Tannehill to find his stride in the fourth quarter.
