Patriots WR will return Saturday

10 Things I Love About This Tennessee Titans Team

The best shot to stop him would be to get turnovers but the problem is that the Titans only acquired 21 turnovers during the season and will have step up their defensive effort tremendously get them against an all-time great like Brady.

They managed just 159 yards the rest of the way as the Patriots defense kept the Tennessee ground game that wore down the Kansas City Chiefs last week in check.

Who the Trends Like: New England and the over.

But that hasn't changed the approach for Brady, who is preparing for his 35th playoff start in the aftermath of recent reports suggesting discord between himself, coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft.

While it all ended with Brady, it didn't exactly begin there. He's the Titans best weapon on offense, as his running ability is what sets up their passing game. Still, his energy proved to be just the antidote the Patriots needed.

It's the pass defense that remains a work in progress, evidenced by Brady's 337 aerial yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's contest. It will take their very best effort to even remain competitive with New England on Saturday night. Perhaps more important than "Tommy Terrific's" 21 completed passes on 31 attempts, 206 yards, and pair of lightning strikes in the first 30 minutes could have been the 53-yard missed field goal by Stephen Gotskowski - botched kick that followed a failed fourth and 1 run by the Titans Derrick Henry. It's that simple. Patriots will fiddle with two-TD lead for most of the game. If New England can find a way to contain Henry, this game will be a blowout.

New jet orders have historically featured during such tours by French leaders. "It's a question of sovereignty", Macron added. On Wednesday, Macron said a contract with China for 184 Airbus A320s would be finalized soon, Reuters reported.

Playoff newcomer Stephon Gilmore shined in his debut on the big stage, allowing zero catches on balls thrown in his direction on a mere three targets. But this time, he wasn't asked to be the every-down running back or take over the third-down role that White has executed so well in recent times.

Marcus Mariota struggled in the face of pressure, the majority of which came from simple three- or four-man rushes. Lewis ran for 62 yards and had 79 yards receiving, along with a 27-yard kickoff return against Tennessee. Fellow rookie Adam Butler also had a sack, while Trey Flowers, Marquis Flowers, Ricky Jean Francois and Geneo Grissom (twice) also brought Mariota down behind the line of scrimmage. To that end, the Patriots spent time during their bye week conducting some self-scouting.

However, it's not just mobile quarterbacks who have posed problems for the Patriots when it comes to scrambling.

James White had two touchdowns, while Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan each had one. Tom Brady threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns. While the Titans could not pull off the upset - it did not help that starting right tackle Jack Conklin was forced out with a knee injury in the first half - Mariota showed promise and could have Tennessee as a perennial playoff contender.

For the seventh straight year, and the twelfth time in sixteen seasons, the New England Patriots are heading to the AFC Championship Game. The victor of this game will play the victor of the Jaguars-Steelers game.
