Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game. Tannehill missed last week's game with an ankle injury. He traveled to Kansas City with the team.
Rookie QB Malik Willis would be in line to start if Tannehill cannot go. Willis started last week's game.

The Cleveland Browns ended their four-game losing streak against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. While Cincy was missing star wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, the offensive line was god awful and Joe Burrow had a horrible night as a result. The Browns sacked Burrow five times, intercepted him once and forced a fumble.
On the flip side, Browns QB Jacoby Brissett ran for a touchdown and threw for 278 yards, while Nick Chubb and Amari Cooper both had highlight-reel days.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was the better QB during Thursday Night Football, but only if you point to the second half. After a shaky start, Jackson ended up going 27-of-38 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-22 win over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
And it's not a Lamar Jackson Game without a Lamar Jackson Run.
other QB news:
The first touchdown of the night went to quarterback Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears. Fields ran for a three-yard touchdown after going 3-for-3 and 39 yards on their second drive.
New England Patriots starting quarterback Mac Jones was promptly benched after throwing an interception in the second quarter, and was replaced by Bailey Zappe who, you guessed it, immediately threw a touchdown pass. Zappe took the Pats' offense right down the field, going 3-for-3 for 54 yards and capped off by a touchdown to Jakobi Meyers.
Zappe continued to throw absolute dimes, with this one in the second quarter - a 43-yarder to DaVante Parker, to set up the touchdown to give the Patriots the 10-0 lead.
The Bears (surprisingly?) ended up winning this one, forcing four turnovers and giving Bill Belichick the business. One of the more impressive turnovers was this grab by Jaquan Brisker.

Thanks for reading! There was another school shooting on Monday at a high school in St. Louis. PLEASE VOTE.
Are we closer than ever to seeing Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder the hell outta here?
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters at the owners' conference that he believes there is "merit" to remove him. ?
I'm not going to get into the logistics, but Snyder is a eyesore amongst the NFL (where there are many bad things happening, so that tells you a lot). It's certainly interesting to see another NFL owner publicly state those comments; it makes you think he's not alone in his thoughts. Irsay also said it may take about 24 votes to oust Snyder.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams shoved a photographer after Monday night's game (if you haven't seen the video, you've likely been hiding under a rock), and is now being charged with misdemeanor assault.
The cameraman, a freelancer who was working for Monday Night Football, was said to have suffered a "minor concussion" during the event. The NFL is investigating the incident for a potential fine and/or suspension.
After two horrible roughing the passer calls in Week Five, where does the NFL go from here? Well, how about nowhere near how referee Carl Cheffers tried to explain it?
This is not how the NFL should proceed in carrying out these calls. But, unfortunately, the referees still think they're correct. A defender cannot, physically, at 300-plus pounds, stop himself from landing on a player while trying to make a tackle. It is literally impossible. Chris Jones last night (while also holding the football) put out his hand to brace the landing against Derek Carr so as not to try to land on him completely.
This leaves defensive players at a loss for how to play effectively versus how just not to try to touch the quarterback at all. The NFL needs to step in and do something before they ruin the sport. Not a single person, even Raiders fans, thought that was a good call.
The first highlight of the night came on fourth down as Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams caught a 58-yard touchdown from quarterback Derek Carr. The Raiders at least realize that you have to be aggressive when going against the Kansas City Chiefs. And yet, if they didn't convert, we wouldn't hear the end of it.
The Chiefs got on the scoreboard with their first touchdown with a classic Mahomes to Travis Kelce touchdown in the second quarter.
It's never good when the most exciting thing during a game is a controversial roughing the passer call. After what happened to Tom Brady on Sunday, this call was somehow worse. Chris Jones was called for roughing Carr, who didn't even possess the ball. I'm not going to rant about this because it will take me all night, but the NFL has to do something about this. It's been two days in a row that the game has been affected by this.
Despite a shaky start, the Chiefs came away with the win. Travis Kelce ended the night with a career-high four touchdowns.
