Date/Time: Sunday, January 19 at 3:00 p.m. EDT

The Chiefs are enjoying a +0.9 yards per play advantage over their opponents this season. Since Patrick Mahomes returned from his knee injury, Kansas City is 6-1-1 against the spread with wins by 31, 20, 10 and 20 at home. WagerTalk handicapper Tony Finn has some numbers to share on how much Kansas City’s defense has improved over the past year: The Chiefs were 31st in total defense in 2018-19. They finished the 2019-20 regular season 17th in total defense. Kansas City was giving up 148.1 rushing yards in Weeks 1-10 to start the year. The Chiefs allowed 95 rushing yards per game in Weeks 11-17.

Derrick Henry is the first NFL running back to rush for 185+ yards in three straight games. Henry’s stat line was the talk of the town against New England, but take a deeper look into Tennessee’s offense during the playoffs. The Titans had nine drives against the Patriots. They scored two touchdowns, punted six times and threw one interception. Against the Ravens, 21 of Tennessee’s 28 points came from Baltimore turnovers on the Ravens’ side of the field. When forced to start a traditional drive on their side of the field, Tennessee generated one scoring drive and punted six times.
