Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota caught an astonishing touchdown pass from himself as the Titans rallied from an 18-point deficit Saturday to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 in the National Football League playoffs. 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.
Midway through the fourth quarter, after the Titans took their first lead of the game, they attempted a two-point conversion.
The Titans struck first in the second half on an odd play in which Mariota tossed himself a six-yard touchdown.

The Chiefs' win streak is over and the long home playoff win drought continues thanks to a 22-21 defeat Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium. Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson scooped a loose ball and returned it for what seemed like the go-ahead touchdown with less than two minutes to play. The Titans were getting ready to play their first playoff game since 2008, and the news was surely a bit of a distraction for Mularkey and for the team. "I look forward to playing next week".
On 2nd and 12, Henry gained just two yards and the Chiefs used their second timeout. But officials ruled that the whistle had blown Mariota down.
"I don't really have anything good to say", Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, "so I'm just going to kind of stay away from any comments on those guys. It's not worth it".
Henry and the Titans dodged a bullet moments earlier, when the running back appeared to fumble for the second time in the game.

But replay showed Henry was clearly down by contact.
Along the way, the Chiefs lost All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce to a concussion and defensive tackle Chris Jones to an ankle injury, depriving them of emotional leaders on both sides of the ball.
But once the Titans defeated the Jaguars 15-10 to snap a three-game losing streak, secure a second consecutive winning season and the franchise's first playoff berth in almost a decade, Mularkey imagined he's return for the final season of his three-year contract, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. "Nobody likes losing and this one's for real".
