Our Free NFL Pick: Both these teams have had a slippery season but did make it to the playoffs. The Chiefs in particular won their last 4 games straight and might finally be in a better spot especially after having the regulars rest in their last game. The Titans aren’t as fortunate however as all of their regulars did play last Monday. On the side of injuries, the Chiefs will be without Tyreek Hill and Characandrick West in this game which will hurt their offense some bit while the Titans will be without Murray. In truth, if the Chiefs have returned to form, I do see them coming away with the win here as they do have the more explosive offense but without Hill, who is their leading WR, it might not be that easier. I say take the Titans.
