Who are the 2022 Super Bowl favourites after Titans thrash Chiefs?

The Tennessee Titans thrashed the Kansas City Chiefs 27-3 at Nissan Stadium on Sunday, which included a first half shutout from Mike Vrabel’s side.

Only three weeks ago had the AFC South side been humiliated by the New York Jets, scoring just 24 points in 70 minutes. They came into week 7’s game averaging 26 points against per game facing the pre-season 2022 Super Bowl favourites.

To anyone reading the scoreline for the first time would have had good reason to believe Derrick Henry was the catalyst to this victory, but the back-to-back NFL rushing leader was held to just 86 yards on 29 carries and 0 touchdowns, with a season-low 3.0 yards per carry.

However, Henry got the scoring going with a touchdown pass to MyCole Pruitt on national tight ends day, fooling the Chiefs’ defence.

The running back’s touchdown pass meant he ended the game with a higher passer rating and more touchdowns than superstar Patrick Mahomes. The Kansas City quarterback finished the game 20/35 for 206 yards, 0 touchdowns and an interception. He also left the game midway through the fourth quarter after receiving a knee to the helmet from Jeffery Simmons.

Following their recent defeat to the Buffalo Bills, the Chiefs had previously fallen to second favourites for this season’s Super Bowl, behind defending champions Tampa Bay. This most recent defeat, that leaves them on 3-4, has seen them drop to 12/1 seventh favourites.
