Tennessee Titans beat Chiefs 22-21 with comeback, advance in playoffs

Dec 24 2017 Nashville TN USA Tennessee Titans running back De Marco Murray fights off a tackle attempt by /Los Angeles Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson during the first half at Nissan Stadium

The Titans took the lead for good when Marcus Mariota connected with Eric Decker on a 22-yard TD pass with 6:06 to go in the game.

Mariota has more interceptions (15) than touchdown passes (13), but any possibility of the Titans pulling off the upset in Kansas City will be because of the play of Mariota.

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

Mularkey has an 18-14 record in two full seasons as the Titans' head coach, after the Titans went 5-27 in the two previous years. If the Jaguars win, the Titans will play the New England Patriots next Saturday.

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 Chiefs have now lost six straight home playoff games, and 10 of their last 11 postseason games. It wouldn't matter, however, as the Titans would get another first down to secure the 22-21 win. But the officials ruled the play was over, it could not be reviewed and the Titans had time for a field goal that wound up being crucial in a game where every point mattered.

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 Chiefs finished the drive with a touchdown.

On the Chiefs' ensuring drive, tight end Travis Kelce appeared to lose the ball on a hit by Johnathan Cyprien.

The Chiefs are on the board first in their playoff game against Tennessee with Kareem Hunt, this season's National Football League rushing champion, plunging in from 1 yard out for a touchdown. The crowd went wild as fireworks popped over Arrowhead Stadium - until replays showed that Henry was down.

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. On the first carry of the drive, Henry rushed around the left end for 12 yards and a first down. But if the Bills win, the Titans will face the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday.
