The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Tennessee Titans to open the 2014 NFL season looking to build off last year’s success but hoping to go a little deeper in the playoffs.  Kansas City lost a big lead to Indianapolis in the playoffs last year eventually losing 45-44.

“What happened in the past, you can’t do anything about it,” linebacker Tamba Hali said. “We just have to build on it.”  It won’t be easy,  especially on the offense of line,  But keeps head coach Andy Reid has confidence in the guys that have replaced them.

Kansas City lost Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert joined starting guards Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz in chasing free-agent dollars.

Donald Stephenson also has moved into the lineup at right tackle, though he’s suspended for the first four games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

“I just care about getting the best five out there,” Reid said of his makeshift offensive line.

Tennessee first-year coach Ken Whisenhunt brought in defensive coordinator Ray Horton to shift the Titans to a 3-4 scheme after they ranked 20th while allowing 112.2 rushing yards per game during their 7-9 finish in 2013.

Jake locker will return as a starting quarterback for Tennessee though his health remains an issue. When locker is playing the Titans are a different team.

“I got all the confidence in the world in him, did last year too,” left tackle Michael Roos said. “He’s proved himself. He just unfortunately has had some freak injuries. I think it’s just a matter of him staying healthy.”

Shonn Greene, former Chief Dexter McCluster and rookie Bishop Sankey give the Titans a talented trio in the backfield after they said goodbye to Chris Johnson after six seasons.
