Succop's 53-yard field goal gives Titans 19-17 win over KC

But on a gutsy attempt, the Titans tried for the 2-points and came up short.

"There's only one explanation for why that ball went in today and that's because it was the Lord's will that it go in". Under sunny skies and very frigid temperatures, the game's outcome was in doubt until the game's final play when Succop, returning to face the team that drafted him in 2010, made the winning field goal. "Instead of going into overtime, I wanted to make a statement to our team of that " s why we came here". "I thought it was a great decision".

The Chiefs picked up eight yards on three running plays before punting. Quarterback Marcus Mariota drove the Titans without any timeouts down to the Chiefs 35-yard line where he downed the ball. That brought Succop on the field and the Titans grabbed an improbable victory. The Chiefs forced a critical early turnover when Eric Berry knocked the ball away from Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews at the Kansas City 5-yard line.

But after 133 yards on nine plays in the first quarter, Kansas City managed just 184 yards on 48 plays the rest of the game.

Late in the fourth quarter of their showdown against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, the Chiefs found themselves in a familiar position: with a tenous lead, and needing only a first down to secure the win.

"Listen", Reid said after the game. 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.

The Chiefs' opportunistic defense set up their next score. How insane does that sound, given the fact this team won a combined five games over the past two seasons?

The Titans lost safety Da'Norris Searcy to a concussion and cornerback Jason McCourty to a chest injury in the first half.
