Titans come back from 18 down to shock Chiefs

The Latest: Titans' Mariota throws TD pass to himself

Marcus Mariota completed a 22-yard touchdown pass to Eric Decker to give the Titans a 22-21 lead with 6:08 remaining, after Derrick Henry scored on a 35-yard run to cut the deficit to 21-16 with 14:08 to play.

Marcus Mariota had to be his own receiver to get the Tennessee Titans their first touchdown on Saturday.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expected he may have been fighting for his job during last weekend's regular season finale. Two-point conversion attempts after each score failed. But the Rams have what it takes to advance, especially in running back Todd Gurley, an MVP candidate.

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.

Marcus Mariota proved Gisele Bundchen wrong.

The Bills' only hope of victory lies in their ability to disrupt Jacksonville's run game-a tall order, seeing as the Jaguars' rushers are second to none this season-and expose their weakest link: Blake Bortles.

It seemed like it would be a futile afternoon for the Titans, as the half ended 21-3 in favor of the Chiefs.

The second-team All-Pro caught a pass over the middle and was going to the ground when Cyprien tried to lay a shoulder into him. But tight end Travis Kelce's concussion shortly before halftime derailed the passing game, as quarterback Alex Smith struggled to replicate his early success as the offense was held scoreless in the final 30 minutes.

After the Titans' Ryan Succop put Tennessee on the board with a 49-yard field goal, the Chiefs drove 79 yards in 1:52 to make it 21-3 on a 14-yard Smith pass to Demarcus Robinson.

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 clock wound down and the Titans won their first playoff game since the 2003 season. Henry finished with 156 yards on 23 carries. But review of the play showed Henry was down before the ball came loose.

The Titans will now face either the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers next week in the AFC Divisional Round.
