Titans beat Chiefs, 22-21, in epic playoff comeback

Titans beat Chiefs, 22-21, in epic playoff comeback

Derrick Henry wasn't happy with his performance in the season-finale.

As multiple Kansas City defenders ran at him near the line of scrimmage, Mariota saw an open man in the end zone and threw the ball.

The two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving Tennessee down 21-16.

This was the first touchdown of the game for the Titans, who were blown out, 21-3, in the first half.

The injury also puts his status in question for next week should the Chiefs advance. McDonough's call was even better. The Titans defense couldn't do anything to cover Kelce or speedy WR Tyreek Hill.

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

The Titans are on the scoreboard after Ryan Succop's 49-yard field goal, and they got some help from the officiating crew just to trim their deficit to 14-3 late in the first half.

Weather warning for strong winds
A weather phenomenon known as a Sting Jet could rip through eastern England as Storm Eleanor rips across Britain. Tuesday night will continue windy with strong southwest to west winds, reaching gale force along western coasts.

The Titans would take advantage, converting a 3rd and 10 and getting a long 35-yard rushing touchdown by Henry, who was simply unstoppable all game.

Alex Smith connected with tight end Travis Kelce for a 13-yard touchdown pass with 2:15 left in the first quarter.

The same game plan should be in place for the Chiefs when they face the Titans.

Tennessee's divisional-round opponent depends on the outcome of Sunday's Buffalo Bills-Jacksonville Jaguars game. Marcus Mariota led the Titans on three touchdown drives, Smith could not even manage to get his team a field goal, and the Chiefs were stunned 22-21 to end their season. On the first carry of the drive, Henry rushed around the left end for 12 yards and a first down. Mariota capped off the drive with an absolute strike to WR Eric Decker from 22 yards out.

The Chiefs have only won two home playoff games in franchise history, the last in January 1994, so perhaps there was some trepidation among fans about investing in a ticket this season.

Similar drama unfolded on the Titans' final drive, when Henry was hit by Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters and the ball came loose. With a Jaguars win, the Titans will play in New England.

In National Football Conference action later Saturday, the Los Angeles Rams hosted the Atlanta Falcons.
