  • 4 things to watch for during Chiefs playoff matchup vs. Titans

Frank Zombo sprinted to daylight, the announced crowd of 73,319 at Arrowhead Stadium cheering and yelling behind him.

Especially the games at Arrowhead Stadium.

Mariota was getting sacked when the ball popped out again. The other has never played in the postseason. Mariota was ruled down by forward progress, which had been stopped (though he wasn't moving forward prior to the contact), on a quick whistle. You just rule forward progress at that point. The Lin Elliott Game in 1996, or their 45-44 loss to the Colts in 2014, for example.

The Chiefs have now lost six straight home playoff games, and 10 of their last 11 postseason games.

Even Kareem Hunt, Kansas City's dynamic rookie running back, who had come out of nowhere to lead the N.F.L.in rushing this season, seemed unable to do anything in the second half.

The game was not particularly impressive statistically for Mariota, who completed 19 of 31 passes for 205 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, but in the end he did all of the little things necessary to extend drives and will his team to victory. The Titans went for a 2-point conversion.

It was debatable whether the Titans should have gotten that field goal at all.

Referee Jeff Triplette's reputation precedes him.

That would play a role later. The Chiefs didn't score off either mistake.

On 2nd and 12, Henry gained just two yards and the Chiefs used their second timeout. "We came in 21-3 and that's all we were talking about: 'Finish. Execute the plays and everything will take care of itself". Defensive tackle Chris Jones, arguably the Chiefs' most disruptive lineman, limped out of the game with a knee injury.

The Chiefs went three and out on their next series, but an Adoree' Jackson muffed punt gave Kansas City the ball back in field goal range.

Freaky plays had a role in Saturday's loss, too.

Mega Millions jackpot up to $450M as drawing nears
The Powerball and Mega Millions numbers have begun to soar, just a year after the Powerball topped $1 billion. At the end of October of past year , the lottery upped the minimum payout from $15 million to $40 million.

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. Derrick Johnson scooped it up and ran it in untouched for the apparent score.

That's right. The man caught his own pass for a touchdown. The Cowboys came back from 21-3 down in the first half to beat the 49ers 30-28 in December 1972, and the Lions came back from 27-7 in the second half to beat the 49ers in December 1957. The bad breaks continued, as an unnecessary-roughness penalty on Ukeme Eligwe negated what should have been a drive-extending roughing-the-kicker penalty.

On the Chiefs' ensuring drive, tight end Travis Kelce appeared to lose the ball on a hit by Johnathan Cyprien.

Marcus Mariota did everything he could to help the Titans advance in the playoffs, throwing a insane touchdown pass to himself, running for crucial first downs and providing the kind of spark that Tennessee needed to rally from a 21-3 halftime hole. Mariota took the shotgun snap and was forced to his left. But their offense failed to do the job.

Kansas City controlled the first half, gaining 264 yards. Henry appeared to fumble as Tennessee tried to run out the clock.
