Chiefs' win probability was almost 98 percent at one point against Titans

07 January 2018

Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota caught an astonishing touchdown pass from himself as the Titans rallied from an 18-point deficit Saturday to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 in the National Football League playoffs.

Kelce didn't return to the game and the Chiefs struggled offensively in the second half.

This was Saturday, the fourth quarter of the Chiefs' 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC wild-card playoff game, and the Chiefs had just surrendered a lead that at one juncture had stretched to 18 points. The two-point conversion attempt failed - and almost brought disaster for the Titans when Mariota was sacked, but officials ruled he was down before the ball came loose. Derrick Henry coughed up the ball and this time no whistle was blown, so Johnson returned the fumble for a touchdown.

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

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.

Mariota was credited both with the scoring pass and reception.

It was his second career touchdown catch.

Henry had a career-high 132 rushing yards and a score on 21 carries, essentially icing the game with a 22-yard run after a tremendous block by Mariota to spring him for the first down.

The Titans' defense, which gave up 21 first half points to the Chiefs, rallied to keep the Chiefs' dynamic offense out of the end zone. Mariota took the shotgun snap and was forced to his left. On the next possession, Alex Smith hit tight end Travis Kelce for a 13-yard score.

With the weight of the Chiefs' past playoff failures now looming large, the Titans again took advantage. But the Titans mounted a comeback, and former Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop hit a 52-yard field goal on the final play of the game - after a timeout by Andy Reid gave him another shot - to give Tennessee the win.
