Mariota leads Titans to 22-21 comeback win over Chiefs

Mariota leads Titans to 22-21 comeback win over Chiefsā€

In the second half of the Titans vs. Chiefs game on Wild Card weekend, Mariota became the first player since 1997 to catch a touchdown pass from himself.

His pass to the end zone was deflected by Darrelle Revis right back to Mariota, who not only caught it but dived into the end zone for the score. It was nearly a disaster, as a Chiefs defender got his hands on the pass and batted it up in the air.

Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce left the game late in the first half after a hit by Titans' Johnathan Cyprien. The Titans went for two, and safety Daniel Sorensen had ahold of Marcus Mariota as he scrambled.

Kansas City converted on third-and-6 early in the drive, when the Titans called timeout in hopes of getting the ball back, then moved effortlessly downfield the rest of the way.

The word is now officially out: the Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly willing to deal Alex Smith on the open market when their season is over.

They haven't won a home playoff game since January 1994, when Joe Montana was under center, and only two in their entire history.

The Titans drew to within a touchdown on a 35-yard run by Derrick Henry with 14:08 left in the fourth quarter.

A similar occurrence happened as the Titans looked to run out the clock as Marcus Peters stripped Derrick Henry and Derrick Johnson scooped up the loose ball and ran to the end zone. Instead, the Chiefs ended up losing 22-21 and their postseason home heartache continued.

The Associated Press and several other outlets have reported that Gruden will be introduced as the coach of their AFC West-rival Oakland Raiders on Tuesday. I don't want to get fined or whatever.

96 percent of selected analysts are picking the Chiefs to win per NFL Pick Watch. For the second time in the game, referee Jeff Triplette promptly waved off a potentially game-changing play in the Chiefs' favor by saying Mariota was down before the fumble due to forward progress.

In National Football Conference action later Saturday, the Los Angeles Rams hosted the Atlanta Falcons.
