Mariota also caught his own pass for a touchdown. Coach Mike Mularkey completely botched the clock management at the end of the first half, costing the Titans potential points.

In a joint statement last week, all three men brushed aside any insinuation of strife at the top of one of the NFL's jewel franchises. If the Titans defensive backs to make things tough for Brady, the team will need to rely on their running backs to march down the field.

"We do what we always do". If we win the game and advance, it will be because we earned it and beat a good team.

The Titans scored first as Marcus Mariota threw a flawless pass to Corey Davis, who made an incredible one-handed diving catch in the end zone to give the Titans a 7-0 lead with 1:14 remaining in the first quarter. "It doesn't really matter what happened outside of this facility".

"It's been a good year for me, but I'm obviously not comfortable where I'm at", Johnson said. I think there has been a lot of hype surrounding our team all season.


Tennessee recognizes the challenge it faces against Brady.

Hogan missed seven of the final eight games of the regular season with a shoulder injury, which he suffered against the Los Angeles Chargers on October 29. Patriots vs Titans tv channel schedule is on CBS.

While he missed two games, one with a real injury, it was the healthiest he has been from September through December in his career.

It's odd for me to say it but Minnesota could pull an upset here if the pieces fall into place.

The Titans had a crucial, yet questionable, pass-interference penalty go against former Jet Eric Decker to scuttle their next possession. According to the published report written by Seth Wickersham, Belichick had a dispute with Kraft after ordering him to trade backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo despite his objection. Tom Brady has had another spectacular year at the helm for Bill Belichick. "I'm looking forward to playing in the championship game".


Those 16 years represent the biggest age gap for starting quarterbacks in postseason history.

This season the Titans didn't have a great defense, but they do have players that can find their way to the opposing quarterback. They're not having to game plan around a quarterback they don't trust.

- Deatrich Wise and Geneo Grissom, Patriots, each had two sacks in New England's win over Tennessee. Still, you have to play the games and the Titans have to play a great game to win this one on the road. But his first three carries went backward, including a 12-yard loss that came dangerously close to a safety. If you sack the guy, he's going to have a long day.

There aren't too many current National Football League coaches that have been around the game longer than Belichick and Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. The Eagles last made the Super Bowl in the 2004 season, losing to New England. Brady, a MVP candidate, completed 66.3 percent of his passes for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns against eight interceptions. "Unless you have some issue going on with your family or something like that, there is nothing else that can distract you".

Brady isn't taking anything for granted. Mariota said the Titans can learn a lot from a game with a battle tested team like the Patriots. You have a rested team, a team of veterans who needed this week away. "You do all the meetings, and walk-throughs, and March, April, May, June try to work out and be prepared for the season, and you get through it and you make it through a whole season and have a chance to compete with everything at stake", he said.
