NFL’s Top Two Teams in Turnover Differential Meet Sunday

_AW_8362The NFL’s top two teams in turnover differential will meet on Sunday at LP Field.

Kansas City (+9) has forced an AFC-best 12 takeaways and Tennessee (+9) is the only team in the league without a turnover.

The Chiefs, who knocked off the New York Giants 31-7 last week, are 4-0, the second team in NFL history to win its first four games after finishing the previous season with at least 14 losses (1980 Detroit).

“Awesome,” is how Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith responded when asked about the team’s start. “It’s great. The entire focus was getting the first win. It’s a week-to-week thing. You can’t start looking down the line.”

The Titans have won two in a row, including last week’s 38-13 home victory over the New York Jets. Tennessee forced four turnovers in Week 4’s win, including two interceptions by cornerback Alterraun Verner and a forced fumble recovered in the end zone by defensive lineman Karl Klug for a touchdown.

“The work still isn’t done,” says Verner. “That’s just the first quarter of the season. We have a lot more football to play.”

    If the quarterback was anyone else , Peyton Manning or Drew Brees or someone that is talked about frequently, those two late hits would have been flagged and the players already fined. What is it about the AFC South that makes everyone think we don’t exist?

    We have great stats because we have a great team. They have jelled and can work together. Jake Locker is their leader and they follow. We are headed to the playoffs! As Verner said, there’s a lot more football to play!
