It's Halftime: What's Happened so Far in Titans-Chiefs


KANSAS CITY – The Titans trail the Chiefs 21-3 at halftime here in an AFC Wild Card playoff game at Arrrowhead Stadium.

A look at what's happened so far:

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 7-of-13 passes for 82 yards in the first half, with an interception.

Running back Derrick Henry ran for 42 yards on 10 carries.

The Chiefs took a 7-0 lead on a one-yard touchdown run by running back Kareem Hunt with 7:37 left in the first quarter. It capped a six-play, 81-yard drive that was highlighted by a 45-yard completion from quarterback Alex Smith to receiver Tyreek Hill.

The Chiefs extended their lead to 14-0 on a 13-yard touchdown pass from Smith to tight end Travis Kelce.

The Titans put together a nice drive midway through the second quarter, but it ended when Mariota was intercepted by Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters at the nine-yard line.

The Titans cut the lead to 14-3 with 1:55 left in the first half on a 49-yard field goal by kicker Ryan Succop, which capped an eight-play, 48-yard drive that featured first down grabs by tight end Delanie Walker and receiver Corey Davis.

But the Chiefs extended the lead to 21-3 just before halftime on a 14-yard touchdown pass from Smith to receiver Demarcus Robinson, who eluded Titans safety Kevin Byard to scoot into the end zone with just three seconds left before halftime.
