Almost unbelievable.... I'm not a Titans (or Ravens) fan but I found myself rooting for the Titan's. I kept thinking the Ravens were going to make a comeback until the last 5 or 6 minutes when I realized it wasn't going to happen. Wow, the 6th seed beating the 1st seed...And they beat them with authority.

The Titans just out played them the entire game but Harbaugh sure helped them with his decisions to go for it (twice) on 4th down in the early parts of the game. Dumb!

The bye week can be a curse in disguise for the team receiving the bye. The Ravens looked rusty.

With the Pats out I was rooting for the Titans (Vrabel) and 49ers (Jimmy G) to win so I'm happy with the results.

Titans/ 49ers SB would be great......

The Ravens had looked almost unbeatable over the last three months. Wow.

It was interesting to watch both games and hear the announcers in the first game attribute the bye week "fresh legs" advantage of the 49ers' as a large part of their win and then hear the announcers blame the Raven's bye week "rust" as a reason for their loss in the late game. Another example of nobody knows nothing. Match-ups, game planning and execution. Who knows from week-to-week?

KC needs to focus on one team today. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow.

Good observation. Can't have it both ways, but it was different networks.

With the Pats and Ravens out of the picture the Chiefs have an opportunity to win the AFC. If they don't it's time for a new coach as it will prove that Andy Reid is a good regular season coach but mediocre in the postseason.

I think bye weeks are great for a team if they can survive the rust.

A tale of two outcomes. 49ers are sitting pretty now and Ravens are waiting til next year.

That Titans defense is the difference imo. They are solid. They did a number on Jackson.

I completely agree about the Titans being a more than legitimate contender. Actually, I think any of the teams from this weekend could have had a decent showing and made it to the SB.

My personal preference would be a Packers/Chiefs rematch. Id also prefer another 20% gain in my portfolio in 2020. For today, Ill be happy with finishing shoveling the drive and a well played game.

The curse is overconfidence of the Ravens. And the "all in " take no prisoners attitude of the Titans. I do think it's unfair that a team can be #1 throughout the entire season and get knocked out in one game. Packers better sit up and take notice. I'm a forever Packer fan but realize they've been lucky so far.

It's still early (~mid 2nd qt) and it is a Houston team...... BUT, after yesterday's Titan's win, anything seems possible.

Yeah, Houston has a long history of playoff futility going back to the Oiler days. But perhaps there is no greater embodiment of playoff futility than Andy Reid. We'll see; one of them has to win.
