The Titans didn't even have a chance to enjoy upsetting Kansas City on the road. The problem teams have against the Patriots is scoring points. I'd be selling them hopes and dreams.
"I have a great relationship with both Robert [Kraft, the Patriots owner] and Tom, and I would throw in there, since it was part of the article, I feel like I have a good relationship with Alex, too", Belichick told WEEI radio in his weekly interview on Monday.
This is from someone who has never been to a Titans game. He continues to do his thing this season, and today Tom Brady is back with something new. So don't take her word for gospel. If the right things go the Titans' way, they could make the AFC Championship Game for the first time in 15 years.
Tennessee will be without DeMarco Murray on Saturday night.
Tailgaters' beer froze solid. He doesn't have the same Hall of Fame presence as Brees, but that doesn't mean the Patriots aren't anxious. He was 18 of 33 for 267 yards with one touchdown and one interception. It was ideal, yet somehow the ball eluded Bennett's hands. "It's a totally different coaching staff from there".
"All (Bennett) had to do was catch the ball, " McGinnis sighed.
A younger, more energetic roster has given IN a more entertaining style with no significant drop IN wins.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey is very familiar with Harrison, having coached on the Steelers when Harrison was on the team.
Brady has fared well against LeBeau with a 6-2 record in his career, including seven matchups against the Steelers and a win over the Titans in 2015. It's hard to envision any miraculous comebacks against a Bill Belichick-coached team.
That defensive keystone will be challenged this week by the Titans, one of the game's best teams the last two seasons in turning red-zone opportunities into touchdowns.
So much for the New England head coach and his staff overlooking their divisional playoff opponent. They've won three straight and it's because of a good run game and a defense that has stabilized itself a bit after some early struggles.
Wow, wow, wow. Anybody who saw last weekend's playoff game between Tennessee and Kansas had to marvel at the wonderful comeback by the Titans and the stunning individual performance of Marcus Mariota. He has to avoid interceptions and fumbles.
It's a major improvement for the 2016 43rd overall pick out of Penn State, who was inactive in six of the first nine games of his rookie season past year.
Tennessee has had a nice run but unless up-and-down running back Derrick Henry has a monster game and is able to help the Titans control the clock this could get ugly quickly.
The offensive line has to have its most productive game and the receivers have to hold on to the football.
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is a tough matchup, there's no doubt about it.
The Titans believe, based on his performance in Kansas City, that Mariota has put his sub-par regular season behind him. They ranked 20th in rushing yards allowed and 30th in average per rush allowed. The Titans will need more of that energy and desire along with skill if they are to win this game.
At age 40, Brady is the oldest remaining quarterback in the playoffs.
"He's the best, " Mariota said of Brady this week. The long time Saints signal caller will be a first ballot Hall of Famer yet will likely be overshadowed for playing in the same era as Aaron Rodgers, Tome Brady, and Peyton Manning.
