NASHVILLE, Tenn. — NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jamaal Charles scored a 1-yard touchdown with 6:23 left, and the Kansas City Chiefs kept up their perfect start after rallying to beat the Tennessee Titans 26-17 on Sunday.
The Chiefs (5-0) are off to their best start since 2003, when they won their first nine games. This win came despite blowing a 13-0 halftime lead in this early AFC showdown between these surprising teams bouncing back after losing seasons.
The Titans (3-2) couldn't have been more out of synch in the first half with Ryan Fitzpatrick starting for Jake Locker sidelined with his sprained right hip. He missed his first five passes and went three-and-out on his first five series before guiding Tennessee to 17 straight points in the second half.
Charles put the Chiefs ahead to stay, and they intercepted Fitzpatrick twice in the final 6:14. Ryan Succop kicked four field goals, including a 48-yarder.
