These two franchises have a long history against each other. The first time these two franchises ever met was October 16, 1960 when the Houston Oilers defeated the Dallas Texans 20-10. The Chiefs lead the all time series 25-20. The last time these two teams met was October 19th, 2008. You will remember that as the game where CJ scored on a 66-yard run and jumped up on the bongo drums and played. LenDale White also had an 80-yard TD run in that game.
These two teams are in very different places than they were in 2008. The Titans were on their way to a 13-3, and the Chiefs ended up 3-13. While the Titans haven't yet been eliminated, it is a long shot for them to make the playoffs. The Chiefs are 9-5 and control their own destiny in the AFC West.
There are a couple of milestones that can be accomplished for Kerry Collins, Marc Mariani and Jeff Fisher in this game. Collins needs just 94 passing yards to become the 12th QB in NFL history to throw for 40,000 yards in his career and 13 completions to pass Joe Montana for 9th on the all-time completion list. A win would tie Fisher with Tony Dungy for 19th on the all-time coaching wins list. Mariani needs five kickoff return yards to break Bobby Jancik's franchise record for kickoff return yards in a season.
The game will be shown on CBS with Bill Macatee and Rich Gannon on the call. Click here for the viewing map.
