As long as it's not the Chiefs or Packers, I'm good with whoever wins it all. I'd prefer SF not win because you just know the media will ride with the "did we keep a mistake keeping Brady and not Jimmy G." the entire offseason, but I also wouldn't mind if they won. As for KC + GB, you just know the media will have a love-affair with Rodgers or Mahomes and already acting like they are the GOAT or something.
You know what? Screw it! I'm riding the Titans all the way to a super bowl win!

Lamar Jackson with another terrible playoff performance. He was awful last year in his first playoff game but might be having a worse game today.

Jackson with 2 INTs, 1 fumble lost on a strip sack, 3 sacks, 2 4th and 1's where he lost yardage keeping the ball both times, multiple inaccurate throws and a terrible penalty where he could have seriously hurt that guy with that horse tackle/helmet hold and fling tackle.

Gotta say, not sad about it at all. Absolutely sick of the over the top hype train over him.

It's such a shame too. I was riding the Lamar Jackson train since he got drafted because I thought everyone was unfairly criticizing him. Now it's completely over the top. People are acting like he's gonna be what Lebron was for the NBA.

Yeah, I actually wanted us to draft him. Now people are saying he’s going to revolutionise the game. Oh well, lol.
 
Wish we had Derrick Henry though, ugh

Come on now.  The first INT hit the best catcher on the team in both hands and he just let it go right through.  Impossible to blame that one on Jackson.  That is one of a handful of drops by the receivers (including the one on the last drive that was an easy TD - which is the 6th drop).  Apparently only the balls Brady's receivers drops matter.  Both 4th in 1's, the Titans just blew up the offensive line.  He can't run through people.  He also had 143 yards rushing and over 300 yards passing.  And for the record, the CBS official, as well as both announcers, said the horse collar wasn't in fact a horse collar and shouldn't have been a penalty. 

Hard to win when your receivers drop balls and you let the opposing RB go for 200 yards.

This is also why I wanted the Patriots to win.  Didn't want to play the Titans and Henry.  He is just scary good.

2 INTs
1 lost fumble...strip sack fumble.
4 sacks.
-1 yards rushing combined on 2  4th and 1's.
0-1 passing in another 4th down.
If it wasn't a horse tackle then it was a personal foul, unnecessary roughness penalty for the grab of the back of the helmet and tossing the guy. Either way, bad dangerous penalty.
Inaccurate passing today just 52% completion.
Tons of empty stats.
Multiple chokes at crucial moments.
Biggest upset in NFL since Giants beating Patriots in 2007.

Titans could be the next 2010 Packers folks.

#6 seed upsetting teams. Now the AFC goes through Arrowhead, and I sure as hell hope the Chiefs go one and done too

Jesus, the excuses are already coming in strong for Lamar. Brady has a game like this, and everyone will say he's washed up lol. Can all the frontrunner just admit they were wrong about this Ravens team?

I'm not saying it was a good game, it wasn't, but 6 WR drops change those passing stats a great deal, especially the first one by Andrews that was picked off.  If Andrews catches the ball, the entire complexion of the game is different.  Baltimore is getting at least 3 on that possession (they were already in FG range) if not going in for a TD and puts Tennessee behind instead of the game staying tied and them going in for a TD on a 35 yard drive. 

And you can do the stats the other way also.

365 passing yards with a TD and 6 WR drops which would have led to a lot more
143 rushing yards (7.2 yards per attempt)
With Ingram clearly hurt the Ravens accumulated 530 yards of offense and 5.8 yards per play

At the end of the day, the Titans dominated the line of scrimmage, both defensively and offensively.  That is ultimately what won them the game and that isn't on Jackson.  That is also what led them to victory against the Patriots as well.  They have just controlled the line of scrimmage the last two playoff games (and frankly their last 7 or so games overall).

Raven CB Marlon Humphrey on Ravens:
"I think this team's identity right now is to get in the playoffs and choke".

Same can be said about their QB.

I'm with you, gouki. I have nothing against Jackson, but all the hype about him drove me crazy—people acting like they've never seen a running QB before, and also forgetting that many of the previous running QBs didn't really pan out.

Anyway, I was absolutely SHOCKED to see that the Ravens lost, but I ain't sad about it. I'm also happy for Vrabel.

You sound like Gisele after Pats lost in 2011 SB to Giants LOL.  Jackson is very talented but had an awful game.  He's young, and I expect he will be back again next season with a better result. But as Nick said, his stats were mostly racked up when the Titans went into a prevent style defense, starting at the end of first half actually.
