Sport Watch: Titans steal play from Chiefs for Henry rushing TD
How Titans hiring Vrabel paid off big-time in his 2nd season
Mike Vrabel guided his Titans' from 2-4 to just their second postseason win since 2003.“I mean, I've changed cities, changed teams. It happens,” the Titans cornerback said Thursday of his team's decision in early 2018 to fire Mike Mularkey and hire Mike Vrabel. “Coaches change, and whatever reason was the reason to have a coaching change then, it was the right one.
The Tennessee Titans are taking advantage of yet another slow first quarter for the. Tennessee orchestrated a lengthy drive, thanks to a clutch fourth-down catch by receiver Adam Humphries and a big reception by tight end Jonnu Smith. So what are the Titans to do? Run the ball with of course! Henry took the direct snap in the red zone (swiping a play the Chiefs ran against New England in Week 14 with Travis Kelce!), and had a wide open lane for the touchdown and to extend Tennessee's lead to 10-0.

Eric Bieniemy says Chiefs got trick play from 1948 Rose Bowl
The Chiefs certainly left no stone unturned in their quest to find potentially productive plays, and they were rewarded in the Super Bowl.Down 3-0 late in the first quarter against the San Francisco 49ers, the Chiefs made a bold decision to go for it on 4th-and-1. They broke out a trick play where the four players in the backfield spun around in a synchronized move to throw off the defense. The snap then went straight to Damien Williams rather than Patrick Mahomes, and Williams rushed for a first down and just missed a touchdown. Kansas City later scored to take a 7-3 lead.
