Chiefs vs. Texans live stream: How to watch NFL playoffs online

No tickets to Baltimore will be booked for the winner of Sunday's divisional-round playoff matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans.

Not after the Tennessee Titans went into Baltimore and knocked off the top-seed Ravens on Saturday.

Instead, the winner of Sunday's tilt at Arrowhead Stadium will host the Cinderella Titans in the AFC Championship Game next Sunday, with a trip to Super Bowl LIV in Miami on the line.

The Texans arrive in the divisional round after a thrilling overtime win over the Buffalo Bills in the wild-card phase. Reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs were off last week, having earned a first-round bye after the New England Patriots fell flat on their faces in Week 17.

Now, the Chiefs will have a chance to host the AFC Championship Game for the second season in a row if they can bottle up Texans star QB Deshaun Watson on Sunday.

Super Bowl is 49ers' to lose after Titans' NFL playoff upset of Ravens

Super Bowl is 49ers' to lose after Titans' NFL playoff upset of Ravens

The rematch has been circled since Week 13, when Justin Tucker's field goal sailed through the uprights to give the Baltimore Ravens a 20-17 rain-soaked win over the 49ers.

We'll see you in Miami, they both thought. They were, after all, the two best teams in the NFL. Both would secure home-field advantage in the playoffs. Flights from Charm City and the Bay to South Beach already were being booked.

But no one counted on the Tennessee Titans.

Mike Vrabel's merry band of hard-hitting, blue-collar football guys went into Foxboro in the wild-card round and pummeled the New England Patriots into submission. No matter. Surely, Lamar Jackson and the Ravens would run over the Cinderella Titans. Their stay in the NFL playoffs would end Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium in the divisional round.

But -- as they say -- that is why they play the game.

The Titans showed up to Baltimore and hit the Ravens in the mouth early. The clearly rusty Ravens -- who hadn't played a real game in three weeks -- never recovered, as the Titans secured a 28-12 upset win to punch their ticket to the AFC Championship Game.

Gone is the dream rematch of 49ers-Ravens.

But also gone is the 49ers' biggest impediment to their sixth Super Bowl title.

The Ravens long had been seen as the favorites to win the Super Bowl title. They had won 12 straight games heading into the playoffs, hadn't trailed at halftime since Week 4, and boasted the league's most-feared offense led by the presumptive MVP in Jackson.

With Lamar out of the way -- along with Drew Brees and Tom Brady -- the Niners are the best team left standing.

As shown by the Titans' stunning upset of the Ravens, the 49ers still will have to earn it on the field. Championships handed out in odds and predictions don't earn you parades.

The 49ers checked one box Saturday, when they ground the Minnesota Vikings into dust at Levi's Stadium, courtesy of a 27-10 win. Next up: Either the Green Bay Packers or the Seattle Seahawks will make the voyage to Santa Clara next Sunday for the NFC Championship Game.

Back in Week 12, the 49ers beat up the Packers, pulled their underwear over their heads and stole their lunch money in a 37-8 win. The 49ers and the Seahawks have played two instant classics, with each team grabbing a win on opposing turf.

The 49ers' defense is fully healthy and back to terrorizing opposing quarterbacks. If they can protect home field next Sunday, they'll fly to Miami to face either the Titans, Houston Texans or Kansas City Chiefs, any of which the 49ers should be favored against and have the personnel to combat what each opponent likes to do.

The MVP is dead, and so are the Ravens.

The Super Bowl should be the 49ers' for the taking.

Titans vs. Ravens live stream: How to watch NFL playoff game online, on TV

Can Lamar Jackson carry the Baltimore Ravens (14-2) over the Tennessee Titans (10-7)? Probably.

The Ravens will play for the first time in nearly two weeks as they host the AFC divisional-round game against the Titans -- and they already have a lot working for them.

Baltimore is currently riding a 12-game winning streak, which is a franchise-best and they are heavily favored to win the game which is what you get when you have a phenomenal passing game like the one they possess. 

The Titans have a decent defense, but Jackson broke Michael Vick's single-season quarterback rushing record and led the league with 36 touchdown passes.

Good luck to the Titans.
