Titans fans from around the world ready for NFL playoffs

Titans fans from around the world ready for NFL playoffs

The first playoff games kicked off this Saturday, and the match between the Titans and the Kansas City Chiefs was a big deal for Tennessee fans. Did the Chiefs take their foot off the gas in the second half? Unfortunately, the tide would turn at the half and the Chiefs would not score a single point in the second half and lose to the Titans 22-21.

The Titans will need their defense to step up in the face of this Chiefs defense. 21-3 ahead and cruising to victory, the Kansas City Chiefs lost Travis Kelce to a concussion and, just as important, defensive key Chris Jones as they let victory leak away and, with defeat, the winds of change are set to blow through Arrowhead during the off-season.

For the offense in particular, the second half rally provided a platform for several of the team's most highly-scrutinized players to stand tall and silence their critics.

"And, it's something special and I'm look forward to playing next week".

The Titans' opponent in the divisional round will be decided Sunday. An athletic, speedy defense kept a lid on one of the league's most exciting offenses to stash another feather in the cap of second-year head coach Dan Quinn, and his team look good for successive NFC Championship games. However, the Chiefs would struggle by losing six of their next seven games to put them at 7-6.

The Titans became the fourth team to overcome at least an 18-point halftime deficit to win a postgame game.

Our wide receivers came back and told us that they were running their routes before we went out there and he was on their line. Sony Michel finished the drive off with his second touchdown run of the day, a 38-yard scamper.

But replay showed Henry was clearly down by contact.

"I mentioned (Saturday) that he called the good ones and I called the bad ones", Reid said. "We'll keep it at that".

"You have to feel this", Reid said. The Chiefs would be best-served by letting Mahomes sit one more season and keep Smith, who continues to play at a high level and Saturday's loss was not on him.

"Guys didn't blink an eye", Mariota said.

The former Heisman Trophy victor finished with 206 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception, although the box score really doesn't do his performance justice. Alex Smith lit up the Titan secondary. He loves to play the game. Titans beat Chiefs 19-17 on last-play FG in December 2016 at Arrowhead Stadium in coldest game in franchise history. After dropping to 6-6, the season could have unravelled but four straight impressive wins later and they are the most risky team in the AFC. In the Joe Montana-led home playoff overtime win against the Steelers in January 1994, the Chiefs still ran for 125 yards, with Marcus Allen running 21 times for 67 yards and a touchdown and Kimble Anders rushing five times for 27 yards.
