Patriots-Titans AFC Divisional Round Predictions

Patriots-Titans AFC Divisional Round Predictions

The Patriots take on the Tennessee Titans at Gillette Stadium (8:15 p.m.; CBS), with a berth in the AFC Championship Game at stake.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan says he kind of blacked out. Interior run-stuffers Lawerence Guy and Alan Branch (who is returning from injury this week) are used on obvious run downs and early down situations. They are going to face off against the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, and it will not be an easy win by any stretch of the imagination. "It's great to be a part of playing for him". It's time to hand the feature back keys to Henry. Belichick said the foundation of LeBeau's defense has remained the same over the years, modified for the players he has and the teams he's facing.

The 2014 Heisman Trophy victor may be polite and as well-mannered as any parent's dream.

Obviously, the offense centers around quarterback Marcus Mariota, and he has a number of talented targets in Delanie Walker, Eric Decker, Rishard Matthews, and others.

Both AFC South representatives are significant underdogs, the Titans at New England on Saturday night, the Jaguars at Pittsburgh on Sunday. Running backs James White, Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead all missed time at some point.

"It's pretty awesome, especially as mild-mannered as he is", Lewan said. I think he's done an incredible job through his career of making plays and being that guy that they need. He's completed 66.3 percent of his passes this year for 4,577 yards, 32 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.

Manchester City bid for Alexis Sanchez
Even with Sanchez being a key player for Arsenal , Wenger's back is up against a wall as Sanchez's contract runs out this summer. It will be nice to have five days and then nearly a week before Newcastle to get a little bit of recovery.

Mariota's first trip to Foxborough did not go well at all in his rookie season.

Murray has been dealing with a sprained knee ligament that has kept him out of the playoffs so far.

They will be big favorites in the American Football Conference (AFC) divisional round having won their last six meetings with the Titans, including a 2015 game. "That was. first of all, that's a very, very hard play to make and that shows you his skill set, his athletic ability - to be able to throw the ball, have it knocked down and be able to catch it where he caught it, and go in and run (on) a scoring dive, it shows his athletic ability".

It also was the fifth-largest comeback in franchise history, the biggest since a 24-21 win against the Giants on November 26, 2006, when the Titans were down 21-0 midway through the second quarter.

Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia says Henry is powerful with a unsafe stiff-arm. "You definitely see that on film". "He's been the best for quite some time", Mariota said.

Flowers said Henry, the 2015 Heisman Trophy victor from the University of Alabama, is not only big, but runs well for his size. This is the Marcus that everyone knows. "We're two days from the biggest game of the year". To me, a steady diet of Derrick Henry (DeMarco Murray has already been ruled out) with some Mariota runs mixed in is a recipe to keep things close.
