The Titans had scored 12 consecutive touchdowns on red zone opportunities.

Tennessee went 58 yards in five plays after taking the opening kickoff, with Derrick Henry getting 9 yards on three carries. The big play was a play-action pass from Tannehill to A.J. Brown, who went 37 yards.

Corey Davis had a 12-yard catch.

Tannehill went 2-for-4 for 49 yards, so he is nearly halfway to 100 yards. He has yet to hit the 100-yard mark in the postseason.

Greg Joseph‘s 30-yard field goal was his first field goal since joining the team Dec. 18.

Kansas City, which fell behind 24-0 to Houston last week, went three-and-out on its first possession.
