Tennessee likely ended the New England Patriots dynasty in the first-round of the playoffs. One week later, the team kicked the Ravens, the top seed, out of the playoffs.

Now, the Titans will do battle next Sunday in the AFC Championship game. Tennessee will face either the Houston Texans or the Kansas City Chiefs.

If the Chiefs defeat the Texans, the AFC Championship game will be in Kansas City, Missouri for the second straight year.

The Titans improved to 11-7 on the season. The Ravens fell to 14-3 on the season.

This was just their second home loss of the season. This was their first home loss since a 40-25 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 29.

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill went 7 of 14 for 88 yards. He also threw two touchdown passes.

Derrick Henry had 30 carries for 195 yards. Kalif Raymond had a 45-yard touchdown reception.

Henry is the first player in NFL history with three straight games with at least 180-yards.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson went 31 of 59 for 365 yards. He also threw one touchdown pass and two interceptions.

Jackson had 20 carries for 143 yards. Marquise Brown had seven receptions for 126 yards.

The Titans outscored the Ravens 14-6 in the second half. Henry hit Corey Davis for a three-yard touchdown reception.

Tannehill also scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown.
