Tennessee Titans vs New England Patriots: Game Prediction

Tennessee Titans vs New England Patriots: Game Prediction

The Patriots have played in six successive AFC championship games, and it will be a tough task for the Tennessee Titans to prevent New England from reaching a seventh. The Titans' defense was the worst unit this year at defending pass-catching. These are some big words, and no doubt Brady has had some rough games this season, but Byard will have his work cut out for him if he intends to make such a star quarterback look like hot garbage on the field. The Titans probably would not have defeated the Chiefs if Travis Kelce did not leave with a concussion. However, I have the Patriots winning this game 27-20.

The Patriots have had a week off to prepare. They are team that has been through some UGLY games this season. What do you think their chances are? Even with - or perhaps because of - some real or imagined snit among Belichick, Brady and owner Robert Kraft, the Patriots will just do their job, and that should be enough to burst the Titans' bubble. The team's really relying on you. James White and Rex Burkhead are both looking set to return to action, in which case Mike Gillislee would likely be inactive.

His performance against the Steelers on that final drive was the stuff of Hall of Famers - three catches in a row for 69 yards.

As of Saturday afternoon, 70% of public bettors are siding with the Patriots and 63% of the money for this game is also on New England minus the points. He averaged almost 17 yards per reception en route to 1,082 receiving yards. Without a big game from Henry the Titans chances are nearly gone. This will actually be Tennessee's sixth contest over the last nine that has not been at home. They were +14 at New England, which won 33-16.

"The one thing you got to try to do is not let him read you like a book, which he's very adept at", LeBeau said.

If he's back to 100 percent effectiveness, Hogan can provide another dimension for Tom Brady in an already risky Patriots offense which features Cooks, Rob Gronkowski, and Dion Lewis among many others. Despite all of the distractions around the team the past week, Bill Belichick will have them ready to play.

Travel delays do occasionally happen, and the Patriots found themselves waiting on the tarmac themselves previous year in January.

Henry finished second in the National Football League in fourth-quarter rushing yards during the regular season, and he gained 85 yards on eight carries in the final 15 minutes against Kansas City.

Henry rebounded from a game in which he ran for 51 yards by setting a franchise playoff record with 191 yards from scrimmage, helping the Titans rally for a 22-21 victory over Kansas City in the Wild Card round.

On 4th and 1 just inside Patriots' territory - and facing a 21-7 deficit, the Titans elected to go for it. The Titans will once again be without veteran running back DeMarco Murray, who is dealing with a knee injury. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard had 124 tackles during the regular season while Kevin Byard (right) paced the team with eight interceptions and was rewarded with first-team All-Pro honors. "It's all about us just believing in each other and executing what's called on all three phases of the ball".

During Brady's tenure, the Patriots are 6-1 against the Titans.

This is from someone who has never been to a Titans game.

What Henry learned showed up against Kansas City, Mularkey said.

If the Titans have any hope of slowing down Brady, the X factor might be defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. New England's front seven must contain Henry as he is the key to this Tennessee offense.

Gillette Stadium in January is not a place for magical storylines involving New England opponents. "Hopefully, we can go out and play well". There's going to be times that that happens.
