Kansas City Chiefs: 3 Bold predictions for Wild Card Round vs. Titans

Share

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson celebrates would-be touchdown that officials overturned during the team's 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Wild Card playoff game January 6, 2017 at Arrowhead Stadium.

Tennessee appeared to come into the game at a disadvantage because its starting running back, DeMarco Murray, was out with a knee injury. "I lost it. I didn't get a chance to see it".

Now that the Chiefs are turning their attention to the Titans this weekend, they clearly look like the better team on paper. He became the first player to catch a touchdown pass from himself since Brad Johnson in Week 7, 1997, according to NFL Research. Tennessee did show signs of offensive life getting deep into Chief territory twice.

Ryan Succop hit a 49-yard field goal to cut the Chiefs' lead to 14-3 with 1:55 remaining in the first half.

Reasons to believe in the Chiefs now include the five-game winning streak they take into the playoffs and a very well rounded offence led by Alex Smith, who remains a spectacular manager of the ball. He left late in the first half because of a concussion and didn't return.

For the Kansas City Chiefs to move on from the Wild Card round they will need to continue to get solid play at QB from Alex Smith. The Chiefs marched down the field easily on two different scoring drives. In the second half he ran the ball five times.

The play looked to be dead in the backfield until Mariota saved the day, and his fans and teammates celebrated their quarterback's extra effort.

Derrick Henry added a career-high 156 yards rushing and another score for the Titans.

Tennessee Titans' Marcus Mariota just pulled off one of the most insane plays in National Football League history.

The Titans' stunning victory saves Mike Mularkey's job, even in a game where his team were so obviously better when Mariota took the gameplan into his own hands. Kansas City scored 124 fourth-quarter points, second most behind Baltimore (135).

Call it a fluke, call it a heads-up play; just make sure to call it a touchdown.

The pain still stung Sunday for members of the Chiefs Kingdom, but the flags still hung proudly in the streets of Westport and the Country Club Plaza. Should the Titans focus specifically on taking one of these pro bowlers out of the game or containing all three of them as much as possible?

This was evident early in the regular season as Kansas City began 5-0 with a win on opening night against the New England Patriots. If Buffalo wins, the Titans head to face No. 2 seed Pittsburgh.
