Titans come back to stun the Chiefs on the road, take first in division

With a win over the Kansas City Chiefs on a last-second field goal, the Tennessee Titans remain tied for the best record in the AFC South at 8-6.

At some point, people might have to accept that the Chiefs might be pretty good.

But they’re definitely going to have to wrap their minds around the fact the Titans are OK too.

The Titans moved into first place in the AFC South with a 19-17 win over the Chiefs, moving them to 8-6.

It was a remarkable win, with Ryan Succop hitting a game-winning 53-yard field goal with no time left. The Chiefs had called timeout to make him wait on a freezing day, and he actually missed that attempt short before drilling the game-winner.

The Titans had a chance to tie the game after Derrick Henry’s second touchdown run of the day, but their two-point conversion attempt was stuffed and they trailed 17-16. It was a bold call with three minutes and 12 seconds left in the game, but they might have just wanted to get in out of the cold, on a day when temperatures didn’t reach double digits.

The Chiefs couldn’t get a first down though, leaving Marcus Mariota just enough time to put his team in position.

Mariota threw for 241 yards and the Titans ran for 148.

For the Chiefs, it was just their fourth loss in their last 24 games, and came on a day when they forced three turnovers and seemingly did everything right.

Except for trying to ice the kicker, as much as anything.
