This weekend’s two AFC Divisional Round playoff games had very similar starts and vastly different finishes.

If one were to compare each of the games to a fight, the Tennessee Titans began their bout Saturday against the heavily favored Baltimore Ravens like the smaller kid reaching up and punching the bully in the nose. The bully, as it turned out, was not so tough after all, turtled up and absorbed the underdog’s blows until the fight was stopped (think Ralphie’s fight with the red-headed bully in “A Christmas Story”).

When Watson was running circles it was because the Texan pass protection wasn't as good as the Chiefs pass rush.
