Marcus Mariota throws touchdown to himself against Chiefs

The Tennessee Titans overcame a 21-3 halftime deficit and defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the National Football League playoffs.

Furthermore, should the Titans lose, they reportedly could set their sights on McDaniels to replace Mularkey.

Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article misidentified the team of running back Derrick Henry.

That information could not have come at a worse time. But they didn't let it affect them.

In the first half, Johnson blitzed in a flash and sacked Mariota, who clearly lost the ball before he hit the ground.

Kelce was knocked out of the game in the second period with a concussion, following an ugly head-to-head collision with a Tennessee defender. Get the app and get the game. His absence changed the game.

The loss of Jones severely hurt the depth of a defensive line already missing key reserve Rakeem Nunez-Roches, and with Kelce out, too, memories crept in of the Chiefs' wild-card defeat at Indianapolis in January 2014. But as has been the case for the duration of Mularkey's two-year tenure as Titans head coach, his team did not quit in a game where many would. No one could hardly believe it.

Kansas City linebacker Derrick Johnson raced to the end zone with the apparent fumble for a touchdown, but it was overturned as officials deemed Henry was down and the play complete before Johnson scooped up the ball.

Mariota's touchdown pass - and reception, for that matter - capped a 15-play, 91-yard drive that took 8:29 and ultimately trimmed the Titans' deficit to 21-10. 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. He finished the game with 11 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown.

"I don't really have anything good to say there so I'm just going to stay away from any comments about those guys".

Perhaps even end Smith's career with the Chiefs. An unlikely hero would show up at the most important time.

Mariota's two touchdown passes included a 22-yard go-ahead toss to Eric Decker 6:06 left in the fourth quarter. Their helmets also collided and Kelce appeared to be dazed when he got to his feet.

The final frustration came as the Titans were trying to run out the clock. Instead, the Chiefs ended up losing 22-21 and their postseason home heartache continued.

The clock wound down and the Titans won their first playoff game since the 2003 season.

The Titans' defense, which gave up 21 first half points to the Chiefs, rallied to keep the Chiefs' dynamic offense out of the end zone. Given the question marks surrounding the many rookies available in this year's draft-from Josh Rosen and Josh Allen to Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield-a team might want to avoid a rookie mistake altogether by grabbing a veteran who just put up his best season yet.

The Titans advance to a divisional game against either the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots or the Pittsburgh Steelers.
