Titans shock Ravens, 49ers sink Vikings in National Football League playoffs

Bill O'Brien's team took care of that very quickly when Deshaun Watson found several holes in Kansas City's coverage and hit Kenny Stills for a 54-yard touchdown with 12:07 left in the first quarter.

Clark was one of nine former MI players on NFC divisional playoff team rosters last weekend, although not all of them saw the field.

But the Chiefs extended their lead, Blake Bell adding another touchdown, to leave them one game away from their first Super Bowl appearance since 1970.

It was no secret the Titans planned to give the ball over and over to Henry, who carried the sixth-seeded Titans to a stellar 20-13 upset of the third-seeded New England Patriots last weekend.

The 49ers dispatched the Minnesota Vikings easily in the Divisional Round and will host Green Bay, a team San Francisco beat handily back in Week 12. Only one other team has gone to a conference championship game after at least four consecutive 10-plus-loss seasons.

According to OddsShark, the Chiefs are the odds-on favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy now that teams like the Baltimore Ravens have been eliminated from the picture.

In that game, Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Adam Humphries with 23 seconds remaining, and the home team sealed the victory with Joshua Kalu blocking Kansas City's last-second field goal attempt.

Cleveland Browns part ways with GM John Dorsey
The Browns selected Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft , Dorsey's first draft with the franchise. But after a 6-10 season, Kitchens was out as head coach and less than two days later Dorsey was out as well.


The Kansas City Chiefs fell behind early in a big way Sunday against the Houston Texans in the AFC Divisional round.

- Damien Williams, Chiefs, had two rushing scores and also caught a touchdown pass in Kansas City's 51-31 victory over Houston.

"We didn't start the way we wanted to - we just had to keep fighting, just go one play at a time", quarterback Mahomes said. "That's the biggest thing you saw here today was we've just got to find a way no matter what". They're a team that's really hot, playing really good football right now, so we know it's going to take our best effort.

San Francisco didn't allow Minnesota to gain a first down for more than 27 minutes of game action starting late in the second quarter.

Football is a team sport, but almost everyone would agree the Titans are where they are because of running back Derrick Henry.

And, get this, he threw a 3-yard touchdown jump pass at Baltimore - the first by a running back in the playoffs since 1987, when Allen Rice of Minnesota managed it.
