Titans' Flight To New England Delayed By Three Hours

Report | Cowboys offered promotion to Matt Eberflus

From the tuck rule game to Tim Tebow's unlikely (and short-lived) postseason cameo, the New England Patriots have found a home on Saturday nights in the second weekend of the playoffs. The Titans' defense was the worst unit this year at defending pass-catching.

"I got more in the flow of the game", Henry said. With starting running back DeMarco Murray out with an injury, Henry played almost every snap and rushed for 156 yards and a TD on 23 carries and caught two balls for 35 yards.

Though Gronkowski has a different playing style than Kelce of the Chiefs, they share the trait of being elite tight ends that must be accounted for. The Patriots, in the month of December, are 20th in the league, averaging 115 (rushing) yards per game on defense.

The Patriots have had a week off to prepare.

Getting Henry to acknowledge any change in his own confidence or being pleased after a big game is as tough as tackling him in the open field.

Running back Rex Burkhead made some nice progress today during practice and has a legitimate chance to play against the Titans, according to a source.

However, it's not just mobile quarterbacks who have posed problems for the Patriots when it comes to scrambling. "You've got to beat these teams at their place".

KEYS TO THE GAME: This may be a matchup between the talent behind two Heisman Trophies on one side and the aura of five Lombardi Trophies on the other. Both times they haven't, they've lost their first road playoff game (in both cases to the Denver Broncos). It was a game in which New England squeaked out a 17-14 win. In that one, Tennessee had three turnovers but was outgained by only 54 yards.

Perhaps the most interesting player in this game is former Patriot cornerback Logan Ryan. The Pats are averaging almost 400 yards per game and 30 points at home. "I'm sure everyone will be excited for Saturday night".

"An extremely athletic guy, so there is a huge factor of mobility with him", New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia said. That's concerning because he's 40 years old and he also faded down the stretch when he last played a complete season, back in 2015. Despite all of the distractions around the team the past week, Bill Belichick will have them ready to play. I think there has been a lot of hype surrounding our team all season.

The team disputed several aspects of ESPN's report, citing "several inaccuracies", and sent out a statement in which Kraft, Belichick and Brady said, "We stand united".

Marcus Mariota threw for 205 yards while adding another 46 on the ground on eight rushes in last week's comeback win. He picked up 46 yards on eight attempts in the playoff win over the Chiefs last Saturday. "We show up to work and try to do the best we can do", he said. His backup Zach Mettenberger threw two interceptions. The Titans will once again be without veteran running back DeMarco Murray, who is dealing with a knee injury.

We probably don't give enough credit to the Titans' defense, probably because they don't have the name-brand stars that everyone knows.
