Wow. The Kansas City Chiefs lost a home game to the Tennessee Titans, 19-17. The Chiefs drop to 10-4 on the season.
Yes, it was cold
I believe it was the coldest game in Chiefs history with a game time temperature of one degrees. The stadium was not packed and tickets were cheap ($2) before the game because of the weather.
There were still some shirtless people.

Turnovers tell the story once again
Don’t they always? The Titans fumbled on a long pass play - great forced fumble from Eric Berry - and Daniel Sorensen picked it up and returned it 56 yards to midfield. The Chiefs ended up getting an Alex Smith rushing touchdown on that drive. That was the good news.
The bad news is that the Chiefs other two turnovers resulted in drives that ended on fourth down and on an interception. The Chiefs could’ve blown this game out if they had capitalized on those other turnovers. Instead they lose.
Tyreek Hill, again

On the second play from scrimmage the Chiefs delayed a handoff to Tyreek Hill who zigged and zagged into the open field for a 68-yard touchdown run. Once he got into the second level it was over. His speed was on another level. He made the final guy miss with a simple move and let his speed do the rest.
Brief Marcus Peters scare
We’ll see if there are any lingering effects but Marcus Peters went down with an injury in the game. He did come back in but it was an ugly looking injury even if briefly. His knee appeared to twist at a weird angle on a play. He came out of the game for the rest of that series while trainers focused on his groin area. He ended up coming back in. I can’t tell you how awful a serious Peters injury would be. He’s up there with Eric Berry for most irreplaceable Chiefs players.
