NFL Week 7 Sunday Schedule: Chiefs-Titans could be an offensive explosion

One of the more exciting matchups of the day will take place early.

On Monday Night in week six, the Tennessee Titans provided a surprise to the NFL world by defeating the Buffalo Bills and their exceptional defense. Tennessee put up 34 points as Derrick Henry ran roughshod over Buffalo’s defenders in a rather shocking performance.

This week, it will be less surprising if the Titans post big numbers once again, as they host the Kansas City Chiefs in what could be an early shootout. The Chiefs still have an offense that can score quickly, though they lead the NFL in giveaways, but the defense is where there are major issues for Andy Reid and company. Kansas City allows the fifth-most points and yards in the NFL, ranking third-worst in yards per rush allowed and net yards per pass attempt.

That could set the stage for yet another explosive game from Henry, the NFL’s leading rusher. He is currently on pace for an astounding 459 carries this season, but also for over 2,200 rushing yards. Both of those marks would shatter the previous single-season records.

That game should provide early fireworks, but it will take place at the same time as the Packers’ early kickoff against Washington. Sunday Night Football this week gets a less-than-stellar matchup, however, with the 2-4 Colts visiting the 2-3 49ers.

Keep it here throughout the day as we follow along with all the action from around the NFL.
