Mariota capped an 80-yard march with a 22-yard bullet between two defenders to receiver Eric Decker, a touchdown that gave Tennessee the 22-21 lead. The two-point conversion attempt failed - and almost brought disaster for the Titans when Mariota was sacked, but officials ruled he was down before the ball came loose.

The Chiefs, who won their final four games of the regular season to clinch their second straight AFC West title, took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on a 1-yard run by National Football League rushing champ Kareem Hunt.

Ryan Succop hit a 49-yard field goal to cut the Chiefs' lead to 14-3 with 1:55 remaining in the first half. But the Titans switched seamlessly to Henry, who gained 156 yards on 23 carries, including a 35-yard touchdown run.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid spent an entire timeout arguing the call to no avail. The Chiefs ended the regular season with four straight wins.

Kareem Hunt carried just 11 times for 42 yards and the opening touchdown.

Alex Smith connected with tight end Travis Kelce for a 13-yard touchdown pass with 2:15 left in the first quarter. On the second play of that possession, Kelce caught a 12-yard pass and was hit extremely hard by S Johnathan Cyprien, who legally led with his shoulder but accidentally caught Kelce in a helmet-to-helmet collision. And for the second year in a row, the Titans beat the Chiefs on their own home turf.

The Titans' defense, which gave up 21 first half points to the Chiefs, rallied to keep the Chiefs' dynamic offense out of the end zone.

The ball was deflected, only to be caught by Mariota, who ran in for a score.

With almost six minutes left in the game, the Chiefs still had an opportunity to retake the lead.

The Chiefs needed a break, and seemed to get it when Peters stripped the ball from Henry; Johnson recovered the ball and ran it back 56 yards.
