For the seventh straight year, and the twelfth time in sixteen seasons, the New England Patriots are heading to the AFC Championship Game.

"This is a good test for our football team", Mularkey said, "but these are the type of games you have to win". "Nothing really should get in the way of that". As strong favorites in this matchup, they'll likely come out hot and look to control this game right from the jump.

That said, the Titans still have their share of questions to address during the offseason. "That's fine", he said.

"Danny does a great job for us", Bill Belichick said. So it's easy for people to overlook us.

"We don't take it for granted around here". "They did excellent. Whenever they're playing well, the offense has got to play well". Brady was 35-of-53 passing for 337 yards and three touchdowns with not a single sack or turnover to be found. The Titans had a minus-4 differential in the regular season (21 takeaways, 25 giveaways), and while the playoffs are truly a one-game season, history says the Patriots - who had just 12 giveaways in the regular season - will take care of the ball.

Marcus Mariota threw for a touchdown to give the Tennessee Titans an early lead, and had another TD pass that was the final score of the game. "I think the way Pittsburgh handled that entire situation and lead up to it was bad".

The Patriots had a playoff franchise-record eight sacks in the game. Coming off one of the biggest comebacks in playoff history, Tennessee was able to pull off an incredibly impressive offensive second-half performance during the Wild Card Round against the Chiefs to clinch a 22-21 win in the last moments of the game.

HEISMAN BROTHERS: Mariota, the 2014 Heisman victor, and Derrick Henry, the 2015 Heisman victor, combined to turn in the best rushing performance in franchise history in the wild-card round. As the Patriots quarterback scrambled right, Amendola continued to drag toward the left sideline. Running back Derrick Henry punished Kansas City for 114 yards in the second half and ran for 156 yards in the game.

The last time these teams met in the playoffs, in a divisional-round game on January 10, 2004, the temperature was 4 degrees with a wind-chill of minus-10. A 45-yard field goal from Jacksonville's Josh Lambo with 1:45 remaining on the clock gave the Jaguars a 45-35 lead that essentially secured the victory.

On paper this looks like a mismatch and it will probably look like that on the turf in New England. The postseason monster that is the New England Patriots will nearly assuredly win their first playoff game of the year. That's more such players than 11 other playoff teams combined (13). Hence, all the pressure is on the Patriots in this game.

Among the issues noted in the ESPN report were how the three men "differ on Brady's trainer, body coach and business partner Alex Guerrero; over the team's long-term plans at quarterback; over Belichick's bracing coaching style; and most of all, over who will be the last man standing".

LeBeau has an NFL-record 45 consecutive seasons as a coach, with Belichick at 43.
