Titans 10-0 Chiefs, 5:52, first quarter
Tannehill finds Jonnu Smith for a gain of 22 yards and, in the next play, passes it to Henry and drives to the final area for the first touchdown of the game.
And the extra kick is good. The Titans have risen 10 in advance and the Chiefs seem to be trying once again to dig from an initial hole.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 7:13, first quarter
Henry can only creak in about a meter on the second floor. I’m 3rd and 2and a big task here from the defense of Kansas City. And they do a decent job, the Tannehill pass is blocked by Terrell Suggs. Due to their football situation, at least in part, the Titans decide to try 4th and 2. And they get it! Adam Humphries with a catch of three yards to bring them to Kansas City 26.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 8:09, first quarter
And now the Titans convince the Leaders to commit an invasion and this is an extra five yards for the Titans, who are in 1st And 5 situation. They give it to Henry who collects about two yards on the carryover.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 8:35, first quarter
The Titans lure the Chiefs offside for a five-yard penalty which gives them an automatic first down without having to call for a real game. Pretty sneaky sister.
It will only be an incomplete passage. It is now the 3rd and 5th for the Titans.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 8:40, first quarter
They decide to go with Henry again, because why not, and he takes them halfway for another first downhill collecting 5 yards to get to the 42-yard line but the next step of Tannehill is intercepted by Bashaud Breeland of Kansas City.
Or is it? The game is being reviewed to see if it hits the ground and is therefore an incomplete pass.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 9:29, first quarter
Henry with his first big heat on the day, a profit of eleven for an easy first down. It’s like looking at a knife that cuts butter.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 10:09, first quarter
And the Titans will begin at 42 after a Kalif Raymond run for about nine yards. This is a fairly decent percentage of field.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 10:14, first quarter
And Mahomes is fired from Kamalel Correa for a loss and his next step ends incomplete. It is a good defensive position for Tennessee.
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 11:29, first quarter
Mecole Harman kicks off at Kansas City 21, where the Chiefs will begin their journey. Mahomes climbs under pressure and retakes two meters.
Field goal (Titans)
Titans 3-0 Chiefs, 11:33, first quarter
Tannehill throws three incompleteness and the Titans field unity on the field. Greg Joseph, who has barely been used, hits a 30 yarder to put Tennessee on the board, but that could be worse for the bosses.
Titans 0-0 Chiefs, 12:25, first quarter
Henry gets another construction site to his next transport. Tannehill finds Corey Davis for a first down and then passes the hand to Henry who collects another four yards to bring them to the 12-yard line of Kansas City.
Titans 0-0 Chiefs, 14:18, first quarter
Derrick Henry gets four meters on his first carry. The 2ND And 6, Tannehill passes to A.J. Brown leaving for 37 yards. The Titans are right there on 29 of the leaders.
Titans 0-0 Chiefs, 3pm, first quarter
And we left, the Titans will start around their 35 after bringing the opening kick.
Kansas City wins the draw and they have decided to postpone. The Titans will start the game in attack, while the Chiefs will bring out the ball from the first half.
He is the interpreter of a retired Navy officer. Generald Wilson. He has a pleasant and resonant voice and does not try to do too much from beginning to end with an extensive “theeeere”. 8/10.
The leaders are introduced to the field, so we are getting closer to the real game time here.
Am I … am I the only one to receive non-stop announcements for Mike Bloomberg? I’m the exact opposite of a sports guy, but I’m not sure if I have to think of the 2020 primary any more than is already necessary.
The guys from NFL Today are making their predictions now. I always wonder if they speak early to make sure they don’t all make the same choice. It is a 3-1 for Kansas City among the announcers, which sounds good: the Chiefs should be favorites but not completely cancel the Titans.
The big host of today’s celebrities? Apparently it would be Paul Rudd.
Will he make the war song? Because it sounds like it’s counterproductive.
Game of the NFC championship
The winner of this game will face the NFC championship winner between Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl. It seems that it will be a closer game, if we could be sure to see the Aaron Rodgers of some seasons ago, I would not hesitate to choose the Packer but I think the 49er, who will play at home, have the advantage Here.
Dude, it’s just hard to choose the Titans here. Leaders are clearly the best team on paper and it seems like a complete misalignment. However, we could have said it before their games against New England and Baltimore.
However, my instincts are telling me that there won’t be much drama here after the second half, if the leaders find a rhythm here I don’t see the Titans being able to react.
I hope I’m wrong, it’s a lot more fun to cover these games when there is a lot of drama, but I go with Chiefs 41-17 Titans. Do you have your predictions? Feel free to send them our way, by email (at [email protected]) or on Twitter (at @HunterFelt).
Well, here’s a potential area of concern for bosses: head coach Andy Reid’s team has gone from 1 to 8 years against the Titans. Also, his record in league games? 1-5. The leaders will want to have a decent advantage built up by the end of the fourth quarter because Reid is notoriously bad at running the watch in key games to the point where it has become a cliche. If the Titans manage to get angry today, there will certainly be questions about Reid despite his exaggerated success in the NFL.
Email from Ezra Finkelstein:
This didn’t get the attention it deserves, but the Tenessee Titans’ football situation is by far the worst in the playoff teams. They made 1 in 15 attempts of the last field goal, started the year with Codey Parkey, him with double noinkity doink and will be in big trouble if a kick is the late option on the game.
Maybe something to look for. One wonders if this will influence their decision making, the scope of the goals on the ground could mean something different for them.
Welcome everyone to the AFC Championship Game among the Chiefs of Kansas City and … wait, hold on, the Tennessee Titans? While it was a relatively safe bet that the Chiefs would make a deep push to the playoffs, the Titans didn’t really expect to go that far. Above all, not whey had to get rid of both the reigning Super Bowls champions in the New England Patriots and the almost certain MVP of the Baltimore Ravens league in Lamar Jackson. On the road, nothing less. An impressive feat by a team of Titans hasn’t even won their division, it has placed second in AFC South behind the Houston Texans now eliminated, but here they are just a victory away from an unlikely Super Bowl appearance.
However, this will be Kansas City’s biggest challenge. Thanks to quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Chief’s offense seems almost unstoppable. They stayed behind in a 24-0 hole against the Texans during the AFC division round, only to bounce back to win 51-31, shaking 41 unanswered points during a stretch of the game. As he has been overshadowed by a regular season injury, not to mention Jackson’s rise and a stellar year from the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, Mahomes continues to be one of the league’s most dangerous threats and will have an arsenal of weapons. larger than Jackson’s Tom Brady of the Patriots.
The Titans, however, have a Hulk or at least the closest thing to one in running after Derrick Henry. Henry was so dominant that he practically rewrote the rules of being an RB, running for at least 180 yards in his last three games. Henry was so good that quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who replaced Marcus Mariota in trouble during the regular season, didn’t throw more than 100 yards into any of the playoffs. With Henry on this side, he was able to help his team win by working primarily as a game manager.
He might not get that luxury in this AFC championship game. The leaders will put the numbers against the titans, so they will have to prove that they can keep up with the leaders offensively. It is a difficult task, but after the previous two games it is foolish to completely cancel their chances. In the meantime, you can send us your views on today’s NFL action either via email (at [email protected]) or via tweet (to @HunterFelt). It’s the AFC championship game between Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs at the Arrowhead stadium. The kick-off is scheduled for 3:05 pm EST, but I will be back much earlier.
Hunter will be here soon, in the meantime, here is our preview of the game today:
What the Titans must do to win: Ummm, avoid skipping a 24-0 lead? The Titans should bear in mind that, despite Patrick Mahomes’ heroic performance during the destruction of Houston Texans last Sunday, Ryan Tannehill and others are more than capable of beating the leaders. In fact, they did it in November, and this happened with Mahomes playing at the height of his remarkable powers. Then Tennessee won the day doing simple things well: Tannehill was free from interceptions, the special teams entered the field with a field goal blocked in the 35-32 victory and Brett Kern blocked the Chiefs in their territory with a 51.0 yard average punting. And then of course there was Derrick Henry, who ran for 188 yards, with the Titans exceeding the Chiefs from 225 yards to 97. Side note: Andy Reid is always 1-8 against the Titans.
What leaders need to do to win: In short, if Mahomes plays well they will probably win. Having said that, the Titans are not a great match for the Chiefs: Henry has been brilliant in this post-season, Tannehill is also a threat to the legs and the Chiefs have had the seventh worst defense in the league during the regular season. (That said, they did a good job of stopping Texans on the ground last week.) But even if the Titans destroy them on the ground, Mahomes has the ability and the weapons to outperform virtually any team in the league.
