The Titans, although it was not always pretty, made the playoffs, breaking a non-playoff streak that only rivaled the Buffalo Bills.

The Tennessee Titans' 2017 season was in danger of spinning out of control.

Big plays will be a key area to watch for as the Chiefs are dependent on them and the Titans don't allow many. The Chiefs opened up a 14-0 lead early, but the Titans scored 13 points in the final quarter and walked off on a game-winning 53-yard field goal from Ryan Succop.

The Titans and Chiefs have some familiarity with one another. Some players step up in these type of moments while others tend to crumble in the moment. The Chiefs have dropped 10 of their last 11 games during the postseason both straight up and against the spread, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, with the lone victory coming two years ago on the road.

The Titans do not play well from behind. One way to do that is to run crossing routes. These two could make life hard on the Chiefs secondary. "He's got good players around him, too".

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Phillip Gaines was placed on injured reserve with a dislocated elbow, the team announced Wednesday. While the offense likes to matriculate down the field, they have shown some explosiveness in the passing game and that can directly be tied to wide receiver Tyreek Hill. While the Chiefs defense was able to bring down quarterback Warren Moon 9 times that game, the Oilers were able to keep it close before losing 28-20.

Meteorologists have been using the term "bomb" for storms for decades, but the phrase went viral on social media on Wednesday. An intense storm packing strong winds and heavy snow is hitting the northeastern US , dumping piles of snow on the region.

In Week 16, Dragiev told SportsLine readers to back these same Chiefs at -10.5 against the Dolphins, saying the game would be a blowout.

The time for the NFL's "Second season" has arrived and this year the Kansas City Chiefs are again one of 12 teams playing in the playoffs.

That means a long day for the running backs.

This year, the difference maker could be Alex Smith. What he also has been known as is a quarterback that likes to check the ball down and is known not to throw the deep ball very much. They braved the cold and noise of Arrowhead past year, and shocked many when they left with a 19-17 victory.
