Stunned Chiefs fans return to work after another improbable playoff failure

Stunned Chiefs fans return to work after another improbable playoff failure

The Titans will now head to Pittsburgh or New England for their divisional-round contest.

While Marcus Mariota and the Titans were impressive during their second-half comeback over the Chiefs, they don't pose the same kind of threat as Kansas City.

Then, there was the very quick whistle that negated a fumble recovery by Justin Houston after fellow linebacker Derrick Johnson sacked Mariota in the second quarter.

Forward progress is usually called when a running back is stopped and defenders are piling on him or several defenders drape a quarterback. Ryan Succop was subsequently allowed to come back on the field to kick a field goal to make it 14-3.

"I'm in shock", Smith said.

After Kelce was knocked out of the game late in the first half with a concussion, the Titans proceeded to double-team Hill wherever he was on the field.

“The defender hit him and he was driving him back, ” Triplette said after the game.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs squandered another chance for their first home playoff win since January 1994, a stretch of post-season futility that includes heartbreaks of just about every stripe.

Things didn't go the Rams' way on Saturday night against the Falcons, but there were a few standout plays from their offense in the game - this throw from Goff to Robert Woods through a tight window a flawless example.

North Korea missile makers hit with USA sanctions
The country will "deal with the U.S.'s most ferocious declaration of war with fire surely and definitely", the report said. Industry sources say China still supplies about 3.8 million barrels of crude a year to North Korea via an aging pipeline.

On first-and-goal from the Jaguars 1, coach Sean McDermott and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison elected to call a run-pass option instead of asking quarterback Tyrod Taylor to either run it in himself or hand it off to running back LeSean McCoy against one of the most vulnerable run defenses in the playoffs.

The Titans are now 2-14 in the Mariota era when trailing by 14-plus points, with both wins coming against the Chiefs. The other cost the Chiefs two points because it happened on a two-point conversion. He had been one of the better kickers all season but missed from 48 yards. The #Titanup faithful will have to wait until the Buffalo at Jacksonville game concludes to find out where the Titans road takes them next week.

"Special", said Mariota, whose 205 yards passing included the go-ahead 22-yard strike to Eric Decker with six minutes left. The one time LeBeau switched up and went with more man-coverage was one of the few times the Steelers had success. So they were up 22-21 but Smith had plenty of time left.

The Chiefs drove past midfield on their final possession with more than two minutes remaining but Smith's fourth-down pass for Albert Wilson was incomplete. After that, Henry salted the game away.

In Marcus Mariota's first playoff game the number 1 came up a lot.

There were some questionable decisions by the Chiefs in this game. So, they have only a second, third, fourth and sixth in the upcoming draft, putting new general manager Brett Veach in quite a predicament as he tries to bolster a roster that was not quite good enough. He had a first-quarter touchdown, but the Chiefs run game ground to a halt. While the Titans do have a weak secondary, the balance kept the Titans on their heels early on. Furthermore, they should have reviewed the fumble on the play Kelce got injured.

Perhaps he'll have a little support now. He capped a 91-yard TD drive to start the second half in the weird fashions: Mariota threw a TD pass to himself.

Going seven-for-seven on third downs in the second half outside of kneel downs and riding Henry despite a big deficit played a huge role in this comeback.

Only two other road teams have rallied from at least 18 down to win a playoff game in National Football League history. Yes, maybe it was poor playing calling on Andy Reid's part, but Hunt completely disappeared in the second half and was barely a factor all game. He was willing to take shots down the field with Decker and Davis, which he needed to do to win.
