Chiefs' home playoff curse continues in embarrassing loss to Titans

NFL Wildcard Playoffs: Saturday games, TV, live scoreboard (photos)

Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to himself in the Titans' playoff game against Kansas City.

Marcus Mariota did what few quarterbacks have ever done before at the National Football League level this Saturday in Kansas City - he caught his own touchdown pass. The Titans needed a win in their regular-season finale and some help to earn a wild-card spot as the AFC's fifth seed. 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.

But once the Titans defeated the Jaguars 15-10 to snap a three-game losing streak, secure a second consecutive winning season and the franchise's first playoff berth in almost a decade, Mularkey imagined he's return for the final season of his three-year contract, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

But quarterback Marcus Mariota has regressed in some major statistical categories in his third pro season - notably throwing a career-low 13 touchdowns and career-high 15 interceptions.

Check here for injury reports for all the postseason games. The Chiefs went three-and-out on the next drive.

The Bills visit the Jaguars and the Panthers visit the Saints on Sunday, and the outcome of those games will determine whom the winners on Saturday will face next week. The drive stalling gave the Chiefs the ball back with a little under two minutes left. But tight end Travis Kelce's concussion shortly before halftime derailed the passing game, as quarterback Alex Smith struggled to replicate his early success as the offense was held scoreless in the final 30 minutes. They could only muster negative-two yards on three plays, and their long field goal attempt was shanked off the left upright by Harrison Butker. He clearly fumbled the ball and the Chiefs recovered.

"Honestly we just didn't come out ready to play in the second half, that's what I'd say", Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt said.

The win was the organization's first playoff win since 2003. Henry finished with 156 yards on 23 carries. The Jaguars locked up their first AFC South title when the Titans lost to the Rams.
