Titans' Mariota throws TD pass to himself

Titans' Mariota throws TD pass to himself

The play was blown dead, and the Chiefs used a timeout to stop the clock. Smith again found Robinson, who dodged a defender near the goal line for a touchdown.

Midway through the fourth quarter, after the Titans took their first lead of the game, they attempted a two-point conversion. But all was not well. But Kelce had to sit out the second half after sustaining a concussion in the second quarter, and the Chiefs never recovered. Rapoport notes that the Chiefs are not only open to it but that the actual returns on the trade could actually be better than what they traded for Smith in the first place.

It seemed like it would be a futile afternoon for the Titans, as the half ended 21-3 in favor of the Chiefs.

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

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.

Raiders make it official: Jon Gruden is their new coach
Owner Mark Davis hopes that will all change now that he has finally lured Gruden back for a second stint as the team's coach. Gruden responded: "Well, thank you". "Nothing's official yet, but these Chiefs fans have been on my case since we got here".

That's right. The man caught his own pass for a touchdown. For the second year in a row, the Titans held the Chiefs offense to zero points scored in the second half of a game. The bad breaks continued, as an unnecessary-roughness penalty on Ukeme Eligwe negated what should have been a drive-extending roughing-the-kicker penalty. With the score at 21-16, the Titans lined up for two, but they ran a terribly designed play that gained one-yard and would've been nullified by an Illegal Shift penalty regardless. A 35-yard run by Derrick Henry further cut into the Chiefs' lead before Eric Decker's 22-yard catch gave the Titans their first lead.

Smith is 8 of 11 for 154 yards and the score.

The Chiefs' win streak is over and the long home playoff win drought continues thanks to a 22-21 defeat Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium.

Marcus Mariota took a vicious hit from Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson on a delayed blitz, and he clearly dropped the ball before he hit the ground.

The final frustration came as the Titans were trying to run out the clock.
