Chiefs' opponent preview, AFC Championship Game: Scouting the Titans

According to ESPN, Kansas City's comeback win was the largest in franchise history and tied for the fourth largest by any team in postseason history. Each team has at least one Penn State representative on its roster, so the Nittany Lions are guaranteed to have a letterman win the Super Bowl yet again. Green Bay now rides a six-game SU win streak, but dropped a 37-8 decision in a Week 12 visit to San Francisco and joins the Titans as a +650 wager on the Super Bowl odds.

The Packers-49ers rivalry is rich with history. As the four-team field gets set for the conference championship round this weekend, the Titans are now just two wins away from being one of the most improbable stories in National Football League history. It was the first game back for Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who missed two games with a dislocated kneecap. The bye between the Wild Card and Divisional Round allowed San Francisco to rest and return some important cogs on defense, and that showed versus the Vikings. That list includes wide receiver Marquise Brown (46 catches, 584 yards, seven touchdowns), who was an impact rookie as the team's best deep threat, Brown, Ferguson, wide receiver Miles Boykin, running back Justice Hill and guard Bradley Bozeman. This year's Big Game will mark the 11th time South Florida has hosted a Super Bowl, with the last one coming in 2010 (Super Bowl XLIV) at Hard Rock, then known as Sun Life Stadium.

That was no aberration for Henry.

Of course, that same Giants team went on to win the Super Bowl that season.

Said Mahomes of the Titans: "The biggest thing is they believe and they're going to fight until the end just like we are". They've gotten back on the horse and fought.

Like Givens, Zettel didn't see much action this season for the 49ers. However, nearly half of Jackson's 3,127 passing yards went to his tight ends (1,522 yards) - Mark Andrews (852), Hayden Hurst (349) and Nick Boyle (321).

The Chiefs would go on to score 41-straight points, ultimately leading the team to a 51-31 victory and a chance to advance to the Super Bowl when they take on the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship game. All four of those victories came when the Packers had Brett Favre at quarterback.
