Just one victory away from clinching a spot in the AFC playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. Adidas Superstar Online Kaufen Schweiz .Early weather predictions call for temperatures in the low teens with the wind-chill factor falling into single digits. Thats cold conditions for even Kansas City in December.The 10-3 Chiefs moved into the control seat of the AFC West with their victory last week over Oakland in similar conditions. Head coach Andy Reids team can assure itself of at least a spot in the six-team postseason field with one more victory in the remaining three games.Every game is important as you go down the stretch, Reid said. Nothing has been declared yet, so youve got to keep the pedal to the metal.The 7-6 Titans will arrive in Kansas City with their postseason chances still alive. They share first place in the AFC South with the Houston Texans. Tennessee is coming off a 13-10 victory over Denver on Sunday in Nashville.The man that leads the offense says the Titans will have quite a task dealing with the Chiefs defense at Arrowhead and in the cold.I think they have a great defense, quarterback Marcus Mariota said. They have a bunch of playmakers across the board. They find ways to get turnovers and when they do, theyre really good at turning it into points. Up front they do a great job of doing different things, causing some identification problems and just doing things in terms of communication for an offense. You have to make sure everyones on the same page and doing the same thing.Mariota comes off his least productive performance of the 2016 season last Sunday against Denver. He threw for only 88 yards, completing just six of 20 passes, a completion percentage of 30 percent and an average of 4.4 yards per attempt.That doesnt jive with his play in November, when he was named the AFCs Offensive Player of the Month with 11 scoring throws, two interceptions, a completion percentage of 66 percent and an average of 8.7 yards per attempt.Reid has been very impressed by Mariotas overall performance this year.His ability to throw the football and read the defenses have come a long ways, Reid said. Things have slowed down for him. The addition of the run game has also helped their football team. You can see that hes more comfortable now then he was when he first came in. Hes healthy now too, which helps.Kansas City is coming off a mini-bye after winning last Thursday night. That 21-13 victory over the Raiders was the third for the Chiefs in 12 days, with two of those on the road -- including a 75-minute overtime decision against Denver. That was three victories by a total of 12 points.It was a gritty, gritty performance, Reid said. Thats a tough thing to do with that many games in that short period of time and to play at a high level against really good football teams. I think credit is due there.But in the NFL, thats considered old news and promises nothing for the coming Sunday.The games just get bigger every week when you are in this situation, Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith said. Its so close right now, you cant start counting the games and doing the math. You cant let yourself go there. We have a team coming in thats really playing good and we have to take care of our business.For another victory, the Chiefs defense must handle a strong Titans running game that put up 180 yards against the highly ranked Denver defense. Tennessee is also the NFLs top offense in the red zone, scoring touchdowns on 71.4 percent of its 42 trips inside the 20-yard line. The Titans are the fourth-best third-down offense, converting 46 percent of their chances.In the seasons first 13 games, head coach Mike Mularkeys team has been in the mix for victory every week. Tennessee has not lost by double digits, and it has won four games that were decided by six points or less. The Titans also are 3-3 on the road.Every one of these games, weve had a chance to win, Mularkey said. Theyve all been close. Weve won some of them. Weve lost some of the close ones. I think the experience has been great for (the players.) Our guys believe were going to win the game, no matter what the situation is. Yeezy Boost Bestellen . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. Yeezy Schweiz . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. http://www.yeezyschweizkaufen.com/ . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Brent Harvey, hands clasped on his head, looked exhausted as he sauntered up to Lindsay Thomas while he prepared to take a set shot at goal from close range late in North Melbournes win over St Kilda on Saturday night.But the 38-year-old snapped into action when Thomas gave off a quick handball and seconds later Kangaroos fans in the 44,287-strong crowd at Etihad Stadium wildly celebrated the goal they so dearly wanted from Harvey in his record 427th AFL game.I wasnt foxing but lucky my opponent just thought Lindsay was going to go back and kick the goal, Harvey said with a wry grin after he celebrated breaking Michael Tucks all-time games record with a 23-point win.I was knackered. I was pretty tired, it was late in the game and wed worked pretty hard.He marked one in the goal square and I was going over to him to give him a pat on the backside after he kicked it and he said Do you want this? I sort of looked around and I thought Yep! I got a little cheap one. But thats the kind of guy Lindsay is. He said to me during tthe week he would get me a goal and he did.

Harvey, who is still yet to lose a personal milestone game in his illustrious career, wasnt overawed by the situation and was a key contributor with 24 possessions.The win was a fitting tribute to a magnificent career but Harvey was careful not to get carried away with the occasion when asked how many games he thinks he has left in him.Ive got no idea ... Ill be on 428 next week and thats all that matters, he said.Weve got our 12 wins now and that was our objective at the start of the year, so well go out next week and have a massive crack against the Bulldogs and see if we can climb the ladder a little bit.Its a cliche, but weve got four games to go (until finals) and Ill be looking at it very short term.Harvey was chaired off the ground by close friends Drew Petrie and Michael Firrito, with St Kilda players joining in a guard of honour.
