Chiefs look to halt playoff troubles versus Titans

  • Titans to take on Chiefs in playoffs on WATE 6 On Your Side

Last time they met: The Titans came back from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to upset Kansas City on the road in December 2016. "We completed the first step and now it's on to the second one, which is winning this game".

But following Thursday's practice, head coach Mike Mularkey says Tennessee's upcoming wild card game is just as big as any other game the Titans have played in way to making it to the postseason. He turned plays that could have gained a yard or two into lost-yardage snaps because he tried to turn them into bigger plays.

National Football League rushing leader Kareem Hunt has his hands full against the NFL's fourth-best run defense, yardage wise, powered by a front seven that only allowed one 100-yard rusher all season, Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams.

Fournette ran 268 times for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie.


Tennessee allowed the least amount of rushing touchdowns this past season with five. Many began to wonder if Kansas City was a flash in the pan. "I don't know if that made it better, but it's a good feeling". Then it'll be up to Mariota and running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry to bully a defense that hasn't had a lot of bite without superstar safety Eric Berry. However, Alex Smith and company won their last four games of the season and appear to be firing on all cylinders heading into the playoffs.

Kickoff is set for 4:20 p.m. and the game will be televised on WATE 6 On Your Side.

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Phillip Gaines was placed on injured reserve with a dislocated elbow, the team announced Wednesday.
