In a fourth quarter thriller, the Tennessee Titans beat the Kansas City Chiefs 19-17 to stay on top of the AFC South. But the Titans were saved by a walkoff field goal from former Chief, Ryan Succop. Derrick Henry dominated the ground game with 9 carries for 58 yards and 2 touchdowns.
More importantly, it spared Titans coach Mike Mularkey from the grief of a controversial failed 2-point conversion near the end of the game. But something clicked late, and when DeMarco Murray hauled in a wheel route down to the 1-yard line with just over 3 minutes left in the final quarter, it appeared the Titans would tie the game. Unfortunately for Kansas City, the Tennessee kicker was bailed out by an "ice the kicker" time out from Andy Reid. A successful two-point conversion would have put the Titans ahead, obviously, but the Chiefs still would have had plenty of time remaining to drive for a winning field goal.

The Chiefs nevertheless got off to a hot start when Tyreek Hill faked like he was running an option play and took an inside handoff instead, running untouched 68 yards for a first-quarter touchdown. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are 10-4 and could drop out of first place in the AFC West and into a wild card spot with an Oakland win. Rishard Matthews led all receivers with 4 receptions for 105 yards.

The poster for the film was also released , featuring a breathtaking image of a man onlooking a dark and foggy battle ground. The film appears to be more straightforward than Nolan's recent work, that has relied heavily on twists and heady concepts.
The Chiefs came back and added a 34-yard field goal from Cairo Santos near the end of the first half for a 17-7 lead at intermission.
"I thought I hit the first one good and when it came up short there was a second in my mind, I wasn't even sure I could reach from there", Succop said.
NOTES: the Titans lost a pair of starters in their secondary in the first half, as CB Jason McCourty (chest) and S Da'Norris Searcy (concussion) did not return. By the end of the game, the actual temperature was nine degrees with a wind chill around zero. The Chiefs are 6-1 at home this season and they have won 12 of their last 13 games inside Arrowhead Stadium.
