Mularkey wants Titans to stay 'loose' ahead of playoff game

Mularkey wants Titans to stay 'loose' ahead of playoff game

"We had a number of chances to get ourselves in, but unfortunately, we had to wait until the last one to do it", Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey said.

National Football League rushing leader Kareem Hunt has his hands full against the NFL's fourth-best run defense, yardage wise, powered by a front seven that only allowed one 100-yard rusher all season, Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams.

Tennessee allowed the least amount of rushing touchdowns this past season with five. Those two embarrassed themselves in recent playoff failures against the Colts, Patriots and Steelers, so if that happens again I'd expect Kansas City to replace the soon-to-be 34-year-old with 2017 No. 10 overall pick Patrick Mahomes II in the offseason.

The fire departments in both Nashville and Kansas City are placing a friendly wager on Saturday's big game. "I don't know if that made it better, but it's a good feeling".

"This is all the work we've been putting in from Day 1", Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith said during a media session. If the Titans take a page out of Pittsburgh's playbook and can successfully stop Kareem Hunt and the Kansas City Chiefs' run game, this could be a much closer match-up than fans are hoping for.

DeMarco Murray is the starting running back for the Titans, but Henry will still likely need to play better if the team is going to advance. "While I can't wait for the Chiefs to steam roll over the Titans, the primary goal of this wager is to help spread fire safety awareness".

The Titans (9-7) will face the Chiefs (10-6) in the wild-card round Saturday with kickoff set for 4:35 p.m. ET.
