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.”
