Instant Recap: Titans Shock the Chiefs in A Classic

Titans Chiefs
In what was supposed to be the worst playoff game of the weekend we got an all-time classic. The Chiefs came out in the first half and dominated. When I say dominated I mean dominated, nearly 4 times as many first downs in the first half for the Chiefs. In the second quarter the Chiefs lost tight end Travis Kelce to a helmet to helmet hit. There was no flag on the play because technically Kelce was making a football move but the hit still looked brutal. Kelce was physically shaken while standing up, stumbling into team mate’s arms. After that the Chiefs began to lose their rhythm. A team that had taken shots for their first three drives reverted to check downs and avoided running the ball. It was a coaching problem that paired with a shell shocked Alex Smith that allowed the Titans back into this game. Derick Henry was the star of this game, running for 156 yards and a touchdown. It only took a Demarco Murray knee injury for Mike Mularkey to run this offense properly. That in itself is cause to be fired but Mularkey saved his job with a win in this game. Marcus Mariota looked bad in the first half but threw the game winning TD to Eric Decker in the final seconds of this game. The Titans offense woke up when they needed to and the Chiefs offense disappeared. Now for the Chiefs comes a turbulent off season which will most likely see them deal Alex Smith, to where is the question? The Titans move on to the divisional round and will be a headache on the ground to whoever they play next.
