Clairvoyant Titans fan appears to predict that Marcus Mariota would throw a TD pass to himself

If you wanted a moment to sum up precisely how "wild" the NFL's wildcard weekend was, it was nearly certainly Marcus Mariota throwing a touchdown pass to himself in order to complete one of the most improbable playoff comebacks since, well, the last playoff game, Super Bowl 51.

Despite the adversity, Tennessee has an opportunity against Kansas City. Kansas City had plus-15 turnover margin, second best in NFL.

Though the coaching staff painted an optimistic picture leading up to last week's game, Murray will be out once again this week. The Chiefs have caught fire the last month of the season to finish 10-6 and with it an AFC West Division Championship. He finished the game with 11 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown. An opening night win at New England showed off all the speed and skill they had in key offensive positions. The Chiefs offense immediately picked up, fueled by the return of the run game with Hunt. But it's like the old saying goes, "that's why they play the games". The other problem - lack of experience with Wide Receivers this season. Gave up on the Chiefs most important play of the season. "I don't know. We've got to go back and go through all of that". He won the NFL Rushing Title in 2017 with 1327 yards and is a focal point of this offense. It was the first post-season win for the franchise in 14 years, and it left Mularkey feeling a bit vindicated when he addressed a handful of reporters deep inside Arrowhead Stadium. Obviously the Chiefs ended up winning, which was great.

That turned the entire game around and ignited the Titans.

I wouldn't rule it out, but I don't see him beating down their door saying "it's now or never" because I don't think it is. It happened to Liverpool [with Coutinho].

The Chiefs' suffered a blow when Kelce suffered a concussion late in the first half on a helmet-to-helmet hit from Titans safety Johnathan Cyprien.

The first time occurred when Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brad Johnson threw, then caught a deflected ball and ran it to the end zone during a game against the Carolina Panthers in 1997. Both quarterbacks played really well and it came down to the wire.

The Odds: The Chiefs enter this one with home field advantage and are favored by 8.5 points against the Titans. "A player of his calibre, not having him out there hurts".

It wasn't an easy start for Mariota, who threw a costly interception from the Chiefs 21-yard line in the first half. Thus making him have happy feet in the pocket.

It's been an odd season for the Tennessee Titans, who are making their first playoff appearance in almost a decade (2008).

There is no easy answer for how the Titans can win in Arrowhead Stadium in a playoff environment. "I don't want to get fined". They needed a win last week against a resting Jacksonville Jaguars team to get in.
