Were Titans offsides on blocked field goal to secure win over Chiefs?
Were the Tennessee Titans offsides on a blocked field goal to secure a win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday? That’s what many are wondering.
The Titans beat the Chiefs 35-32 after a late touchdown from Ryan Tannehill that followed a botched field goal attempt by Kansas City. The win was secured when Josh Kalu blocked a 53-yard field goal attempt by Harrison Butker as time expired.
Kalu was able to get in so quickly because he got a running start on the snap. His great jump left many wondering whether he was offsides. Take a look.

Kalu definitely got a great jump and it was very close regarding the potential offside. If he was offside, it was close, not blatant. Several Tennessee media members did not think he was offsides.
Incredible jump on the FGA by Kalu. I thought live he was offside, but rewinding to check he just timed it right pic.twitter.com/zkOHBfspPH

That was a game-changing play because the kick was blocked. If you’re a Chiefs fan, you might be upset with the refs over the play, but probably are more upset with the unbelievable special teams meltdown.
