Reid: No plan to replace Smith with Mahomes

The Titans were down 21-3 in the third quarter of their away wildcard game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday night when Mariota launched the comeback march

Marcus Mariota threw for two touchdowns in the second half, including one of his TD passes to himself, and Tennessee scored 19 unanswered points after halftime to stunned the Chiefs at home.

Henry's touchdown run with 14:08 left in the game allowed the Titans to cut Kansas City's lead to 21-16 after Tennessee had trailed by 18 points. He got the chance to be in a room with Alex Smith, which is invaluable. Mariota threw a pass that was deflected back to him and he caught the pass for a six-yard TD. The Chiefs were never in command against the Steelers as they were on Saturday.

Chiefs: making 20th overall playoff appearance (16th since the merger), 9-17 in postseason play (4-15 since the merger).

The defense played very well in that game, limiting Alex Smith to 163 yards and forcing an interception out of him. Smith led KC's ensuing drive down the field and capped off the attack with a 14-yard pass to wide out Demarcus Robinson. The Cowboys came back from 21-3 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. They responded playing with much more aggression and flow to the football.

With the Titans down 21-3 deep in the third quarter of their Wild Card matchup against the Chiefs, Mariota hurled a touchdown pass to a rather serendipitous receiver, himself. In the second half he ran the ball five times.

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

Marcus Mariota of the Tennessee Titans just made the play of a lifetime.

One crucial play for the Titans' offense in the first half came when Mariota was hit and appeared to fumble, but Tennessee retained possession due to forward progress on one of a few controversial calls. Kansas City leads the all-time series 29-22, including a 2-0 mark in the playoffs.

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. The 1 that was most impressive to me was the 1 block Mariota threw on Chiefs linebacker Frank Zombo.

Going seven-for-seven on third downs in the second half outside of kneel downs and riding Henry despite a big deficit played a huge role in this comeback.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Franchises have not met in playoffs since January 1, 1994, when Chiefs beat Houston Oilers 28-20 in divisional round. The #Titanup faithful will have to wait until the Buffalo at Jacksonville game concludes to find out where the Titans road takes them next week.

Why are they coming here to New England next Saturday?
