That was an awful game thrown by Jeff Triplette. What are you smoking man?

Then why was he promoted for the playoffs? The appearance of incompetence can go a loooong way.

But on the heels of that play, a clean but unfortunate hit, the Chiefs marched right down the field and scored at TD for a 21-3 lead. Certainly it didn’t help them that Kelce had to leave the game, but if they couldn’t make the needed adjustments even with a 21-3 lead at the half it’s not hard to see why they lost.

good teams have more than one option - if the TE goes down and the team collapses, that team doesn't belong in the Div Championship and beyond....

I agree. It was 14-3 when Kelce left and the Chiefs ran a near perfect 2 minute offense without him. Did they forget about that in the second half? If so they deserved to lose. Good on the Titans for not sleep walking through the second half and treating it like a game that was theirs for the taking.

Actually it was a helmet to helmet, should have been a 15 yard penalty. NFL refs are terrible.

Gotdamn Andy Reid...

Stop with the rigged crap. The only real questionable call was the Mariota TD to himself, I thought he was over the line, but wasn't really a definitive look to overturn. Henry was clearly down on his run and the Mariota 2-pt play was whistled dead long before he fumbled. That's typically what happens on a live play where a runner gets pushed back 10 yards but he's still on his feet--they blow it dead. Everybody thinking the Chiefs got jobbed are skipping over the real problem...

Andy Reid is now 1-4 in his Chiefs playoff career and 11-13 all time. This is his fourth one and done and the man has made a career of flaming out in the postseason after great regular seasons. There is plenty of blame to go around for Kansas City. You can't blow an 18-point lead at home in the playoffs. You just can't....but leave to Coach Reid, he consistently finds ways to lose in the playoffs, majority of time as the favored team. Overrated!

Andy Reid
Like grieving over the loss of a loved-one, NFL fans grieve in a certain predictable way....usually first blaming the referees/NFL for being rigged....

Andy Reid is another of those NFL coaches who can be a very good coach thru some prisms, and terrible in others. The conservative play calling when ahead versus the ability to design plays early in the game and execute them soundly. Reid and Alex Smith showed again both sides of the equation. Smith had the great start and of course losing Kelce hurt a lot. But the guy still is a third tier QB at best. I don't understand how a guy in the league this long just gives up on a play, tucks the ball, and runs every time before the pocket breaks down. This is something you would expect from a rookie. KC needs a bug time overhaul. Nothing is going to change so long as it's Reid and Alex Smith.
