At this time of year, you nearly expect a sarcastic and sour football fall in Kansas City to flash a new sign: "Welcome to Arrowhead Stadium". Coach Mike Mularkey said Henry went the wrong way on the play.
Henry's 35-yard run also lifted his total for the game to 106 rushing yards on 17 carries.
And there was more drama on the Titans' final drive, when Henry was hit by Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters and the ball came loose. The Titans offensive line dominated Kansas City's defensive front in the second half and Tennessee controlled the clock during the comeback. He'd rushed five times for 52 yards before three consecutive kneels to close out the contest.
"He can run. He can pass".
"I'm part of a group of guys that really believe in each other", said Mariota, whose 205 yards passing included the go-ahead 22-yard strike to Eric Decker with 6:06 left. "He can catch, too".
'Right place, right time, ' Mariota said with a smile after the game. The threat of more designed quarterback runs from Mariota, whether it actually comes to fruition or not, should boost the overall productivity of Tennessee's running game against the Chiefs. The 1 that was most impressive to me was the 1 block Mariota threw on Chiefs linebacker Frank Zombo.
After Kelce was knocked out of the game late in the first half with a concussion, the Titans proceeded to double-team Hill wherever he was on the field.
Inquiring minds wanted to know who called the plays for the Kansas City Chiefs' offense during the second half Saturday. The Titans were paper tigers this season. That's what showed up at Arrowhead Stadium when they were the more focused and clutch team Saturday.
Madden had high hopes for Mahomes though, predicting him to throw for 315 yards and two touchdowns.
Losing the former Dallas Cowboy is a big blow considering they have to play near ideal football to win this game. That's What I REID Into It for this week. "Through the ups, the downs, the energy it doesn't change".
Alex Smith tossed a 14-yard touchdown pass to Demarcus Robinson with three seconds remaining in the first half - Kevin Byard whiffed on a tackle at the goal line - to give the Chiefs a 21-3 lead at halftime. Only the ball never made it to the end zone because it got batted down by Darrelle Revis and that's when things got insane.
Smith led the Chiefs into Titans territory but on fourth down with a little over two minutes left, but a long pass was broken up by Cyprien. Kansas City's offense is ranked in the top ten in the National Football League in points (6th), total yards (5th), rushing yards (9th), and passing yards (7th).
"Hopefully we can expect big things from young players", said Justin Winter. They started off looking like the best team in football.
