Titans @ Patriots: NFL Divisional Playoffs Preview

New England and Tennessee have met just seven times in the Tom Brady/Bill Belichick Era with the Patriots holding a 6-1 record in those games including a playoff win in January of 2004.

That's when Dion Lewis appeared to break free for a 50-yard touchdown catch on a screen pass, giving the New England offense the much-needed shot in the arm it lacked in the first quarter. The team knew, down 21-3, at the start of the second half they were going to lean on the third year QB. Both times they've had that in the past four years, they've won the Super Bowl.

With Henry shouldering the load, Tennessee has posted two victories in games it had to win to keep its season going.

The Titans head into Saturday's AFC divisional playoff game against the Patriots as 13.5-point underdogs.

Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET. The NFL's stellar officiating crew in NY put their thumb on the scale in favor of the bigger Super Bowl draw of the Pats when they raped the Steelers out of the winning touchdown and guaranteed the homefield advantage to the Pats.

This is a reciprocal six day visit following the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Israel during July 2017. In Mumbai, Netanyahu will meet Jewish community leaders and select members of the Indian business community.

Titans safety Kevin Byard said they allowed Brady to control the game. That's what made the 2015 Heisman Trophy victor calling his performance "kind of soft" in Tennessee's regular-season finale stand out.

Brady went on to win his second Super Bowl, and now he has five rings.

"I get ready for the game all week", she said. "It's the same stuff, different day". Here are three things to watch in the first of two AFC divisional round games.

"(This season) has flown by.

"It's not like if he stays in the pocket he can't make throws, but when he escapes outside the pocket and he has the ability to run and throw, you honestly really don't have a shot to stop him, I think", McCourty said.

Italian Camila Giorgi continued her impressive run at the Sydney International by racing past Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1 6-2. Medvedev is eyeing off his first career title after toppling veteran Italian Paulo Lorenzi 6-3, 6-3.

Postseason History: Titans: making 22nd overall playoff appearance (17th since merger), 15-19 in postseason play (13-16 since merger)...Patriots: making 25th overall playoff appearance (24th since merger), 32-19 in postseason play (31-18 since merger)...

Fans would probably be better off rooting for the Jags if they want to see an AFC title game that has any mystique because Pittsburgh just can not beat the Pats.

Ryan provides a "stabilizing" presence for the Titans defensive backs, defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau said (via ESPN). "That's where you go prove it". "We get another chance to play against a great team in a good environment". "We know that every week with any quarterback".

The only hope we have for competitive football is in Minnesota and Pittsburgh, where the two best defenses in football could be equalizers. For most of this season, though, Hogan has been on the sideline mending a shoulder injury. At least the Titans can say they scored the first and last touchdowns of the game.

Bell has just started bitching about his contract to the media again, not a good omen for a selfish dude who has a history of letting his team down. Helping to drive his team downfield late in the game.
