Titans visit Chiefs as NFL playoffs begin

A touchdown before the end of the first half gave the Chiefs a 21-3 lead, and they seemed to be well on their way to a victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Marcus Mariota did what few quarterbacks have ever done before at the National Football League level this Saturday in Kansas City - he caught his own touchdown pass. There was also the rumor that RB DeMarco Murray will likely not be back this season, and that Derrick Henry is seen as the featured back going into the future. The two-point conversion attempt failed - and almost brought disaster for the Titans when Mariota was sacked, but officials ruled he was down before the ball came loose. With the score at 21-16, the Titans lined up for two, but they ran a terribly designed play that gained one-yard and would've been nullified by an Illegal Shift penalty regardless.

But on third-and-6, he scrambled left before firing a pass into the end zone, where it was deflected into the air by Chiefs cornerback Darrelle Revis. The third-year quarterback struggled, throwing more interceptions (15) than touchdown passes (13) while registering a career-low 79.3 passer rating. The Chiefs finished the drive with a touchdown.

Alex Smith tossed a 14-yard touchdown pass to Demarcus Robinson with three seconds remaining in the first half - Kevin Byard whiffed on a tackle at the goal line - to give the Chiefs a 21-3 lead at halftime. The defense forced a stop, and kicker Harrison Butker hit the right upright on a 48-yard field goal attempt. Mariota clearly lost the ball before hitting the ground.

"I just wanted to have a better performance than I had last week", said Henry, who averaged just 1.8 yards per carry in the season finale.

Tennessee got the ball back with 2:09 left in the game.

The win was the organization's first playoff win since 2003. Eager to melt the clock, the Titans put the ball in Henry's gut.

Henry had a career-high 132 rushing yards and a score on 21 carries, essentially icing the game with a 22-yard run after a tremendous block by Mariota to spring him for the first down.

The Titans will now face either the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers next week in the AFC Divisional Round.
