|Marcus Mariota led Tennessee to three second-half touchdowns,adidas Seth Jones jersey, incredibly throwing one of his TD passes to himself ,adidas Scott Hartnell jersey, and the Titans rallied from a 21-3 deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 on Saturday for their first playoff win in 14 years.
Mariota threw for 205 yards and two scores,Authentic Sergei Bobrovsky jersey, including the 22-yard go-ahead strike to Eric Decker with just over six minutes left that ushered the Titans into the divisional round of the playoffs.
"Special,Authentic Jamie Benn jersey," Mariota said. "I'm a part of a great team. I'm a part of a group of guys that really just believe in each other. And,adidas Tyler Seguin jersey, special, it's something special and I'm look forward to playing next week."
They'll head to New England or Pittsburgh next week.
Derrick Henry had a career-high 156 yards rushing and another score for Tennessee (10-7), while a defense that was fileted by Alex Smith and the Chiefs (10-7) during the first half pitched a shutout in the second half — dooming the Kansas City franchise to another humiliating postseason defeat.
The Chiefs haven't won a home playoff game since January 1994.
Smith threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns , but most of that came before halftime. He couldn't get on track in the second half and misfired on fourth-and-9 at the Titans 44 with just over two minutes to go, denying the Chiefs a chance for Harrison Butker to kick a go-ahead field goal.
The letdown was made even more depressing when Henry appeared to fumble as Tennessee tried to run out the clock.
The Chiefs' Derrick Johnson picked up the ball and returned it for a touchdown with 1:47 to go, but a video replay showed that Henry was down and the call was overturned.

The Titans' young quarterback got on track in the second half,womens Robert Nkemdiche Jersry, converting a couple of key third downs — one of them with his legs — in marching his team 91 yards. He capped it by throwing the first TD pass to himself,Authentic Brandon Williams Jersey, though, the first player to accomplish the feat in playoff history.
The previous player to do it in any game was the Vikings' Brad Johnson during the 1997 season.
"Right place,womens Brandon Williams Jersey, right time,Authentic D.J. Humphries Jersey," Mariota said with a smile.
Tennessee nearly squandered its momentum when Adoree Jackson fumbled a punt, but the Chiefs were unable to pick up a first down and Butker knocked a 48-yard field goal off the upright.
