• Last Meeting: Titans beat Chiefs, 17-14, in overtime on Sept. 10, 2000, at Tennessee.

• Last Week: Chiefs beat Raiders, 34-27; Titans lost to Colts, 51-24.

• Key Matchup: Chiefs defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham vs. Titans Coach Jeff Fisher. Cunningham credits Fisher with resurrecting his career after he was fired as head coach of Chiefs following 2000 season. Fisher made Cunningham the Titans' LB coach in 2001 and he stayed through 2003. Cunningham returned to Chiefs for 2004, but has been unable to improve one of NFL's worst defenses. Chiefs were 29th overall last season, 30th now.

• Game Notes: Chiefs QB Trent Green has six 300-yard passing games this year. . . . Chiefs' Tony Gonzalez needs seven receptions to pass Kellen Winslow Sr. for third most among TEs all-time. Both franchises originated in Texas. Dallas Texans moved to K.C. after 1962 AFL season. Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee after 1996.
