Chiefs collapse late, fall to Titans 22-21 in playoff opener

  • REPORT: Titans Could Fire HC Mike Mularkey With Loss To Chiefs

Vegas line as of Friday afternoon: Chiefs -9.

Only, instead of going for a pick-six, which it certainly could have been, Mariota caught the pass and took it into the end zone. He tried to throw a pass over the Chief's Darelle Revis, who deflected the ball back toward Mariota. No one could hardly believe it.

On the second play of the fourth quarter, Titans running back Derrick Henry broke free for a 35-yard touchdown run.

The Chiefs seemed to retake the momentum when Tennessee's Adoree' Jackson fumbled the ensuing punt and KC recovered, but three fruitless plays later, rookie kicker Harrison Butker doinked a 48-yard attempt off the left upright - evoking shades of Elliott, who missed a game-winning kick in the waning seconds of a 10-7 loss to Indianapolis in a January 7, 1996 divisional-round game. He finished the game with 11 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown. On the drive, Mariota converted three third downs, two through the air and one on a nifty scramble to the right for 17 yards.

The Chiefs grabbed an early 14-0 lead against the Titans for the second time in as many seasons. Now, Dorsey is the Cleveland Browns GM and knows exactly what Smith could bring to the franchise, the sort of stability at the game's most important position to help bring a perennial cellar-dweller out of the doldrums of the AFC North. Kelce was wobbly getting up, and ruled out for the game with a concussion.

Samsung will reportedly unveil its new Galaxy S9 flagship smartphone in February
Reports assert that Apple dumped the TouchID sensor in the iPhone X after they neglected to implant it underneath the show. OnePlus 6 will reportedly have fingerprint sensor below the display, and will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 platform.

The final frustration came as the Titans were trying to run out the clock. On the first carry of the drive, Henry rushed around the left end for 12 yards and a first down.

The Chiefs needed a break, and seemed to get it when Peters stripped the ball from Henry; Johnson recovered the ball and ran it back 56 yards. He has tossed the ball over 4,000-yards, totaling 26-touchdowns, and only gave the ball away 5-times. It wouldn't matter, however, as the Titans would get another first down to secure the 22-21 win.

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

The Chiefs still led 21-10 at that point, but the offense had gone cold. 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.
