New England Patriots: 5 players to watch for vs Tennessee Titans

New England Patriots: 5 players to watch for vs Tennessee Titans

He told Omnisport: "There's an argument to be made that he could be called the greatest quarterback of all time, five-time Super Bowl champion, an outstanding person, outstanding player, so he's left his legacy, he's going to be remembered for sure".

He provides Brady with a comfort blanket and that big body presence in the middle of the field that is a nightmare for opposition defences. "We do need to get him well from an illness standpoint".

The Titans have a chance - yes, a slim one - but a chance nonetheless to pull off a shocking upset in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Saturday night due to their third-year quarterback from Hawaii and what he means to his team. He's probably the most powerful back Matt Patricia's 20th-ranked rushing defense has faced all season.

That's just a starker example of a defensive dissonance that's commonplace at Foxborough.

He had 13 picks in four years with the Patriots.

For the first time ever, a number six seed is a favorite to beat the top overall seed in any conference.

So be prepared to see a focused New England team this postseason with a great chance to be the first repeat Super Bowl champs since - who else? - the 2003-04 Patriots.

"It has been a fun group to coach because they come in and they work every day", McMillan said. The biggest difference we've seen is Mariota consistently extending plays with his legs and right arm, running for key first downs and putting his body on the line for his team. That's more such players than 11 other playoff teams combined (13). "So defensively, it's all about not giving up touchdowns". I've been watching his game, covering it for a long time. This is a different Titans defense than that one, of course, and it will fight.

The frozen home crowd of 68,000 exhaled icicles and the Patriots went on to win their second Super Bowl in three years.

Quarterback Tom Brady leads the New England Patriots into Saturday's AFC divisional-round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans, and receiver Danny Amendola wouldn't want it any other way. If he does, he will have to get pressure from his best pass-rushers: outside linebackers Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo and tackle Jurrell Casey. Of course, he's never played a playoff game before.

The first, and I promised the last time, I covered the Patriots-Titans in a divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium was on January 10, 2004. But Tom Brady and his vast array of receivers should run wild against Tennessee's very mediocre secondary.

On their official injury report released late Friday afternoon, the Steelers listed Brown as questionable to play Sunday. In their only trip inside the red zone against the Chiefs, Tennessee scored a touchdown, albeit on the fluke pass Mariota threw to himself.

Mariota leads the National Football League with five fourth-quarter/overtime comebacks or game-winning drives, including the one in Kansas City last week where he helped the Titans launch the second-biggest road playoff comeback in National Football League history. After missing four straight games, he returned to action in a December 11 loss to the, but struggled as both a pass catcher (one reception on five targets) and blocker. Henry managed just 51 yards and 1.8 yards per carry against the Jaguars, and afterward he felt like he ran soft.

Marcus Mariota threw for 205 yards while adding another 46 on the ground on eight rushes in last week's comeback win. So what does Mariota have in store for everyone on Saturday night?

The Titans are going in to New England with nothing to lose and everything to gain.
