The Tennessee Titans ran for 332 yards. 455 total yards. The season is over for Brodie Croyle. The Chiefs have allowed 68 points and scored just 10 in their last two games and are 1-5. Does it get much worse? That question could easily be made after watching the lone unbeaten team in the league come into Arrowhead on Sunday and lay a whoopin on the Chiefs 34-10.
Chris Johnson ran for 168 yards on 18 carries (9.3 yards per carry), and LenDale White rushed for 149 yards on 17 carries (8.8 yards per carry) to dominate the Chiefs all day. Kerry Collins threw for just 123 yards, but was good going 11-for-18 and not geting sacked.
The Chiefs issues were many once again, and on offense they were all over the place. They went with Croyle, but he suffered a knee injury that Herm Edwards said will end his season. He was having a good day when he was hurt, as he was 9-for-10 for 63 yards before being knocked out.
Damon Huard was 9-for-16 for 96 yards and was sacked twice. Tyler Thigpen, in mop up duty, went 5-for-11 for 76 yards and had the teams only TD when he ran it in from 14 yards out to make it 34-10 with 2:37 left. The Titans made the Chiefs offense rather simple all day, as they knew that there was not much going to go on for KC on the ground, and they were right.
With Larry Johnson out of the game due to a suspension, the team ran for just 58 yards on 17 carries, with Thigpen’s 14-yard score being about the only meaningful run of the day for the team. The long season for the Chiefs continues next week as the team takes on the Jets in the Meadowlands as Edwards goes up against his old team.
