Titans vs. Chiefs highlights, game tracker and more

There was nothing soft about how Henry played Saturday, rushing for 156 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. Accentuating the ominousness was a an interception thrown by QB Marcus Mariota, who didn't see playmaking Chiefs CB Marcus Peters peel off the WR and jump TE Delanie Walker's route.

The play put the Titans on the march to a heart-stopping 22-21 win, stunning the teams fans.

The quarterback had Tennessee in the red zone and, on a broken passing play, rolled left out of the pocket.

On a third-and-goal play for the Titans, Mariota rolled out and threw a pass that was tipped by the Chiefs' Darrelle Revis.

Asked after the game about the officiating, and specifically referee Jeff Triplette ruling that Marcus Mariota's forward progress had been stopped on what appeared to be a fumble, Reid said he couldn't answer without the National Football League fining him.

The Chiefs took a 7-0 lead on a one-yard touchdown run by running back Kareem Hunt with 7:37 left in the first quarter.

Two of those calls came in the first half, starting with this sack on Marcus Mariota.

Alex Smith completed 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns, spending the first half carving up Tennessee with a receiving combination of Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Demarcus Robinson. "And then he caught the ball, too, on the bounce pass so a great job by him". Henry also has two receptions for 35 yards, including a 29-yarder, so far in Saturday's game. "The season is on the line, you win or go home". For the second year in a row, the Titans held the Chiefs offense to zero points scored in the second half of a game. While the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings enjoy a week off, the remaining teams go head-to-head in the Wild Card round.

"He can pass, he can run and he can block", said Henry of Mariota.
