The Kansas City Chiefs are a touchdown favorite against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in the AFC Championship. But after what Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark said on Friday about Titans running back Derrick Henry, we might want to flip that line.

According to The Tennessean, the 6-foot-3, 260-pounder didn’t seem bothered by the task at hand, tackling the currently unstoppable Henry, who weighs in around 247 pounds.

“(Henry is) not hard to hit,” Clark said, according to the NFL Network. “He’s just a big guy … honestly he should be running harder at his weight and his size. I don’t see no difficulty in tackling him.”

“… He’s just easy to me up front because I don’t look at any running back like they can’t be tackled. He’s not one of the best guys at breaking tackles to me honestly. He’s just a big body, and when people look at him, they’re scared to tackle him or they look at him and they’re scared to play aggressive. I think I’m the aggressor. I know I am.”

Do you know who didn’t need bulletin board material? Derrick Henry. Tennessee’s running back has been dominating defenses in the postseason so far. He rushed for 182 yards and a touchdown (plus a receiving one) in their upset win over the New England Patriots and followed that up with 195 rushing yards and two touchdowns in their upset win over the Baltimore Ravens. Clark should especially take note of that second one as Baltimore Ravens safety Earl Thomas talked a lot of smack before that game and ended up on the receiving end of an absolutely soul-crushing stiff arm.

It’s not like Clark can point to a lot of previous success. The two teams met in Week 10 and Henry amassed 188 rushing yards and two touchdowns in a 35-32 Titans victory. So we’re not entirely sure where Clark’s hubris is coming from and why he thinks it’s a good idea.

Good luck to the Chiefs’ defense on Sunday. They are going to need it.
