Grade the Kansas City Chiefs victory over the Tennessee Titans

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

The KC Chiefs win again in Week 5, beating the Tennessee Titans and moving to 5-0 in the process. It wasn't pretty but few of them are. Grade the Chiefs performance against the Titans.

Winning on the road is hard. Winning on the road by two scores (twice in three weeks) is even harder. So the Chiefs deserve some kudos for their 26-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. As usual, there was some good and some bad.

The good

  • Chiefs defense shines again
  • Sean McGrath and Marcus Cooper keep it up
  • Alex Smith goes deep -- twice -- to Donnie Avery
  • The goal line stand was awesome
The bad

  • The offense, in general, had problems throughout the day
  • The defense slipped for a short but costly few minutes in the second half
  • The Chiefs had nine penalties

As for the grade, I'm leaning towards a B+. The struggles at times offensively are the biggest reason they don't get an A. Defensively though they put out a terrific effort, once again keeping the Chiefs in the game. They are able to mask flaws with this team. Special teams gets an A++ for scoring a touchdown. Ryan Succop also hit four field goals.
