The Titans just went up 17-7, thanks to a touchdown pass to backup tackle Dennis Kelly, but the Chiefs are certainly helping them along the way.

The Titans touchdown drive was helped along by a pass interference call on Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland, which allowed them to convert a third-and-22.

Along with three neutral zone infraction penalties so far (including one by Frank Clark for jumping offsides on this drive), the Chiefs are continuing a trend of early mistakes. Last week it was dropped passes and some special teams miscues, but they were able to recover.
