"I have the Titans actually going in there and handling business".
And that means no one inside the football offices or locker room at Gillette Stadium will be taking the Titans lightly. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, with his five Super Bowl titles, has the most playoff wins in history by a starting quarterback with 25. The Patriots survived against the Jaguars and Chargers in the '07 playoffs, though failed to cover the lofty line, and demolished Tim Tebow's Broncos in 2011 and Brock Osweiler's Texans just last season. In addition to being double-digit dogs, the Tebow Broncos (minus-81) and Osweiler Texans (minus-49) had ghastly point-differentials in the regular season.
It's Divisional Weekend in the National Football League, and there are several pressing questions that will be answered in the games played Saturday and Sunday: Will the New England Patriots keep rolling despite reports in the media of unrest? When he takes the field Saturday (8:15 p.m., CBS), Brady will be appearing in his 35th playoff game.
"We've dealt with some non-Tennessee subjects here over the last few days", said Belichick.More news: Disney announces new Star Wars: Rivals action shooter for Android and iOS
It showed last Saturday at Kansas City when a half-dozen teammates erupted from the Titans' bench to mob Mariota after he delivered a physical block on Chiefs linebacker that paved the way for to get a game-clinching first down on third-and-10. I think we all know who is going to win that battle 99.99% of the time (Hint: The answer's Tom Brady). The series will give fans a rare, unprecedented look into his family interactions and day-to-day lifestyle, and will air exclusively on Facebook's Facebook Watch streaming platform.
Tennessee recognizes the challenge it faces against Brady.
Brady was asked what advice he might offer a youngster like Mariota. "This is about Tennessee". We have one game left against the Titans. A trailer promoting the movie came out earlier this week.
"Henry, you've got to be able to defend everywhere", McCourty said. Against the Jaguars it was a late-game run, and stiff-arm, followed by a stare down - and a Tennessee win.More news: Eli Lilly and Co (LLY) Shares Sold by Private Capital Advisors Inc
As Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald pointed out, the Patriots had flawless attendance at practice today for the first time since September 29. DeMarco Murray is out with a knee injury, so Henry better stay healthy because the Titans' next three leading rushers are a quarterback, cornerback and wide receiver. Since Mitchell is still on IR, he is not listed on the Patriots' practice report. If that happens, I'll certainly let you know as soon as possible.
They'll need a huge rushing day from the physical force that is running back Derrick Henry.
Surprisingly, over 20 percent of New England's 53-man roster has never appeared in a playoff game. His return should be a nice boost to the Patriots' receiving corps, which has used the likes of Phillip Dorsett, Danny Amendola, and Kenny Britt alongside No. 1 target Brandin Cooks in Hogan's absence.
The last six players listed are rookies, including Wise, who is the lone Patriots' draft pick from last April that is on the active roster. After losing to them in the regular season, the Steelers will need to play a clean game and score touchdowns in the red zone. I really wouldn't know anything. "This week has been intense". This problem compounded itself when Edelman missed the final two games of the season with a concussion. They're good, as I said, in all three phases of the game. "I'm just trying to improve daily". I guess Butler won't be getting that big contract he hoped for this upcoming offseason, and Gilmore won't live up to the one he signed this past spring.More news: Huge transfer fee a 'compliment', says Van Dijk
