Six Things to Watch in Titans-Patriots Game Saturday

DeMarco Murray injury update Titans RB ruled out vs Patriots

That year they lost to the Baltimore Ravens as the three seed, but this year they maintain their streak and will face the Tennessee Titans. Byard could cause a lot of problems and keep New England from throwing the deep ball.

Dion Lewis came up huge in this round of the playoffs a year ago as he had a 98-yard kickoff return for a TD, a 13-yard TD reception, and a 1-yard TD run in the Pats' 34-16 win over Houston.

The Patriots have had a week off to prepare.

"They're the champs and these are the types of teams you've got to beat if you want to be the champs", says Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey, who is 0-5 against the Patriots. You know what I'm saying? 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 team's really relying on you.

Why they'll lose: Tom Brady is an ageless wonder who led the National Football League in passing yardage, and ranked both third in touchdowns and passer rating.

The Patriots should be able to pick apart the Titans' secondary if they take the time and precision to do it, but they will have to be careful in their approach. Kelce had four catches for 66 yards and a touchdown in the first half.

The Patriots have 41 players with previous playoff experience. The Titans allowed only 61 yards total offense and no points in the final 30 minutes. Despite continued conjecture about the state of the Patriots, there is a unified resolve now that it's nearly game time. Road weariness could become a bit of an issue especially in another cold atmosphere in New England.

The Titans, who overcame a 21-3 Chiefs lead to win 22-21, are listed as 80-1 to win the Super Bowl by some Las Vegas bookmakers - longer odds than they were listed in some places before the season began.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots offense will be in a showdown against the Titans defense being led by defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau who was with the Steelers in the past. That'll be a key element because it's hard to imagine the Titans having a chance if it's a shootout.

The Tennessee Titans did something no one expected them to do last weekend: defeat the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead. Maybe, just maybe, they can make the Pats worry. Erick Decker contributed 545 yards while Corey Davis and Murray had combine for 641 yards in receptions.

In the regular season, Mariota completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 3,098 yards and 12 touchdowns against 15 interceptions, and ran four 252 yards and five touchdowns.

The Titans are going in to New England with nothing to lose and everything to gain. Their sophomore running back Derrick Henry has overtaken running back DeMarco Murray's starting job while Murray has been out with a knee injury.

"He actually knows when to run and when to pass the ball when scrambling", Patriots defensive back Duron Harmon told reporters in trying to explain what separates Mariota from other mobile QBs. That's what made the 2015 Heisman Trophy victor calling his performance "kind of soft" in Tennessee's regular-season finale stand out. Brady's uncharacteristic unevenness down the stretch, coupled with the revelation tucked in an ESPN blockbuster on tensions within the Patriots that his own coaches have seen "slippage" in Brady this season, has prompted the latest round of questions about whether age has finally started to leech Brady's brilliance. To see where it's come, to be a part of it, I think is very gratifying. This contest screams of a game dominated by Rob Gronkowski, who eats up the middle of the field against mediocre linebackers. "There won't be a second delay", Belichick said.
