OFFENSE


First half

First drive: Quarterback Patrick Mahomes seemed to throw an interception on the first play of the game, but the play was overturned after further review. Mahomes followed up the near-interception with a 10-yard completion to wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The Chiefs converted their first third down of the game a couple of plays later with a 19-yard pass to Tyreek Hill. A 16-yard completion to Travis Kelce and a 7-yard gain from Hill put the Chiefs into the red zone. A 10-yard run from Damien Williams and a short pass to Kelce put the Chiefs into the end zone for the first score of the game. Chief 7 Titans 0

Second drive: The first play of the drive was nullified by an offensive holding penalty. Two plays later, pass interference followed by another holding penalty was called on the offense to push the Chiefs back after getting great field position. Mahomes completed a couple of passes to get back some yardage, but the penalties were too much to overcome and the Chiefs settled for a field goal. Chiefs 10 Titans 0

Third drive: Williams took the first carry of the drive for nine yards. Mahomes overthrew a couple of deep passes to Hill and Watkins and the Chiefs were forced to punt.

Fourth drive: The Chiefs drove 41 yards in six plays, but a fumble from Williams was returned for a Tennessee touchdown. Titans 13 Chiefs 10
