When Tennessee travels to Kansas City Sunday, two Tennessee Titans will feel right at home. Running back Dexter McCluster and kicker Ryan Succop’s first regular season game since leaving the Chiefs will be played at their former home field, Arrowhead Stadium.

McCluster was with the Chiefs from 2010 to 2013 and signed with the Titans on the first day of free agency in 2014. Ryan Succop was drafted by the Chiefs in 2009 and was released on Aug. 30, 2014. He signed with the Titans two days later.

Both are anxious about their return to Arrowhead.

“It’s going to be different, sitting on the opposite end and having people yell, ‘Hey, Dexter you suck!'” jokes McCluster. “Hopefully, they won’t do that but you know, I don’t even think I ever saw the opposing team locker room so that will be a first for me as well. But I know it’s going to be fun and it’s going to be a great experience.”

Succop hasn’t had as much time to think about it as McCluster, but welcomes the trip with open arms.

“I’m very thankful for my time there,” says Succop. “Things transpired the way they did there and all I leave there with is very positive feelings.”

Positive feelings aside, Succop knows where his loyalty lies.

“Obviously, I want to win on Sunday and I’m excited to get that opportunity and that’s the plan.”
