Marcus Mariota led Tennessee to three second-half touchdowns, incredibly throwing one of his TD passes to himself , and the Titans rallied from a 21-3 deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 on Saturday for their first playoff win in 14 years.adidas Patrick Kane jersey

Mariota threw for 205 yards and two scores, including the 22-yard go-ahead strike to Eric Decker with just over six minutes left that ushered the Titans into the divisional round of the playoffs.adidas Artemi Panarin jersey,

"Special," Mariota said. "I'm a part of a great team. I'm a part of a group of guys that really just believe in each other. And, special, it's something special and I'm look forward to playing next week."adidas Corey Crawford jersey

They'll head to New England or Pittsburgh next week.Authentic Artemi Panarin jersey

Derrick Henry had a career-high 156 yards rushing and another score for Tennessee (10-7), while a defense that was fileted by Alex Smith and the Chiefs (10-7) during the first half pitched a shutout in the second half dooming the Kansas City franchise to another humiliating postseason defeat.adidas Nathan MacKinnon jersey

The Chiefs haven't won a home playoff game since January 1994.Authentic Ryan Hartman jersey,

Smith threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns , but most of that came before halftime. He couldn't get on track in the second half and misfired on fourth-and-9 at the Titans 44 with just over two minutes to go, denying the Chiefs a chance for Harrison Butker to kick a go-ahead field goal.adidas Corey Crawford jersey

The letdown was made even more depressing when Henry appeared to fumble as Tennessee tried to run out the clock.adidas Jonathan Toews jersey,'

The Chiefs' Derrick Johnson picked up the ball and returned it for a touchdown with 1:47 to go, but a video replay showed that Henry was down and the call was overturned.adidas Marian Hossa jersey,

Tennessee succeeded in running out the clock from there.adidas Patrick Roy jersey,

In the first half, and the Titans looked every bit the team that backed into the playoffs.Authentic Jonathan Toews jersey, the Chiefs looked every bit the team that had won four straight in convincing fashion,

Kareem Hunt, plunged in from 1 yard for a 7-0 lead, the league's top rusher this season , and Smith hit Travis Kelce with a 13-yard touchdown pass a few minutes later. Smith added another touchdown toss to Demarcus Robinson on the final offensive play for a 21-3 lead at the break.[url=']adidas Ryan Hartman jersey[/url]

Smith was 19 of 23 for 231 yards in the half. Mariota was 7 of 13 for 81 yards and a pick.Authentic Marian Hossa jersey,

The Titans' young quarterback got on track in the second half, converting a couple of key third downs one of them with his legs in marching his team 91 yards. He capped it by throwing the first TD pass to himself, though, the first player to accomplish the feat in playoff history.Authentic Nathan MacKinnon jersey

The previous player to do it in any game was the Vikings' Brad Johnson during the 1997 season.Authentic Patrick Kane jersey,

"Right place," Mariota said with a smile.Authentic Corey Crawford jersey, right time,

Tennessee nearly squandered its momentum when Adoree Jackson fumbled a punt, but the Chiefs were unable to pick up a first down and Butker knocked a 48-yard field goal off the upright.Authentic Patrick Roy jersey,'
