1. Marcus Mariota, QB

Let’s start with Mariota, and they very nearly lost to the Texans during Deshaun Watson’s hot start to the season., who is mobile and comfortable outside of the pocket – exactly the type of quarterback that the Patriots have had the most difficulty defending in 2017. Their first two losses of the season were to Alex Smith and the Chiefs as well as Cam Newton and the Panthers

2. Derrick Henry, RB

Assisting him on the ground will be Derrick Henry, who also has to be at his very best if the Titans want to wear down a Patriots defense that is vulnerable to the run. They allowed 118 rushing yards per game this season, rushing 23 times for 156 yards and a touchdown. He also had two catches for 35 yards., and Henry had the best game of his career against the Chiefs

As of right now, it’s supposed to dip down to 19 degrees overnight on Saturday night in Foxborough, it could turn into grind-it-out battle on the ground in short order., and if there’s any rain or snow

3. Ryan Succop, K

For that same reason, kicker Ryan Succop is going to be vital to their game plan. Any team playing outside in New England in the winter has to know that the game has a better-than-average chance of coming down to field goals and extra points.

Succop’s 42 field goal attempts in the regular season tied for most in the NFL, and his 35 field goals made were the 5th most. That means two things. The first is that the Titans have relied on him all season. The second is that while he’s made a lot of field goals but he’s also missed a fair number as well. All seven of his misses were from 40+ yards.

4. Jurrell Casey,Womens Brian Orakpo Jersey, DL

On the defensive side of the ball there is no one more important that Jurrell Casey. He has the power to disrupt Tom Brady and make him uncomfortable, the rest of the defense has a chance to make some plays against players that they’re otherwise outmatched against., and if he can do that

5. Wesley Woodyard, LB

No disrespect to All-Pro free safety Kevin Byard,Womens Rishard Matthews Jersey, who hilariously said that he wants to make Tom Brady “look like Blake Bortles.” He’ll have a job to do working on Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola all game. However linebacker Wesley Woodyard could play a huge role in slowing down Brady’s most formidable weapon in Rob Gronkowski.

I don’t have any actual evidence to suggest that they have plans to use Woodyard in coverage against Gronkowski, but they should. He’s their best tackler, the only real way to beat Gronk is to triple-team him., leading the team with 124 including 11 for a loss. He has five passes defensed this season And as Aqib Talib once quite accurately pointed out

At 6’1″ and a 219 pounds,Womens Ben Jones Jersey, he’s bigger than any of the defensive backs but also smaller and leaner than Brian Orakpo – and while Woodyard and Avery Williamson are two of the better run defending linebackers in the league, and Woodyard could be their best bet., triple-teaming Gronk will require someone to come off the line

The NFL will send three playoff teams to London in 2018, news that comes as a new survey indicates British people find the sport second only to golf as the dullest to watch.

The Seattle Seahawks will play the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 14 in Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium in North London; the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 21 or Oct. 28 in Wembley Stadium; and the Tennessee Titans will play the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 21 or Oct. 28 in Wembley. Dates for those two games will be firmed up when the NFL’s full schedule is released in April.

In October,Authentic Wesley Woodyard Jersey, Alistair Kirkwood, Panthers and Packers) that have not yet played overseas. The Titans, the NFL’s UK managing director, had told ESPN that he was aiming to get the final six teams (Eagles, Titans,Authentic Avery Williamson Jersey, Eagles and Seahawks can be crossed off that list, Seahawks, Texans, and the Jaguars have agreed to play a home game in England every year through at least 2020.

As for the Texans, Panthers and Packers,000-seat StubHub Center digs in 2019, don’t be surprised if they’re on the travel list for 2019. Houston and Carolina play each other at NRG Stadium, which would seem like an ideal game for England because it takes care of two teams with one contest. As for the Packers, they won’t give up a home game in the league’s smallest city, making London a likely landing spot for that game, and host teams don’t like to give up the sellout when Green Bay comes to town. But they play the Chargers in their temporary, 27, with the team announcing Thursday it will host one international game in 2018 and ’19.

The announcement comes as 70 percent of 1,616 British adults who took part in a YouGov survey said the sport was painful to watch. The majority of those surveyed ranked “American football” as the nation’s second-dullest sport to watch, and only golf did more poorly., with 59 percent of respondents rating it “very or quite boring.” Only 18 percent described it as exciting

Maybe the Tennessee Titans are coming up for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the perfect time.

After a drama-filled week , the quarterback says his focus remains solely on football as his team prepares to host the Titans in Saturday’s divisional round.

During Brady’s tenure the Patriots are 6-1 against the Titans. He has 13 passing touchdowns and one interception in those games – his best touchdown to interception ratio against any opponent in his career.

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

In a joint statement last week, all three men brushed aside any insinuation of strife at the top of one of the NFL’s jewel franchises. Brady reiterated on Thursday that his mind remains on the field.

“We do what we always do. We show up to work and try to do the best we can do,” he said. “We know there’s a lot at stake and I think everyone’s put a lot into it. It doesn’t really matter what happened outside of this facility.”

Patriots receiver Danny Amendola hasn’t noticed any change in Brady.

“He’s the ultimate professional and he (makes) his teammates better and he demands a lot, and we all want to play hard for him.”,” Amendola said. “We all want to win for him

Tennessee recognizes the challenge it faces against Brady. It opened the week as a 13-point underdog, and prior to last week hadn’t won a playoff game since the 2003 season.

“It’s a playoff game, so it’s not like it’s the preseason where I can go out there, `Oh,’ and I’m chillin, it’s Brady,'” Tennessee All-Pro safety Kevin Byard said. “This is a playoff game. So I don’t really care if it was Joe Montana. You know what I’m saying? I’m trying to go out there and win the game. I want to make him look like Blake Bortles if I can to try to catch a couple picks.

“Tom Brady is a great quarterback, Authentic Ryan Succop Jersey,but it’s a playoff game. I’m not really looking at it like that.”

At age 40, Brady is the oldest remaining quarterback in the playoffs. The Titans have the youngest in 24-year-old Marcus Mariota. The 16-year age gap between them is the largest between starting quarterbacks in a playoff game in NFL history.

Since 2001, quarterbacks making their first or second career playoff start are 0-7 against New England.

“I think it just comes down to how well you play,Womens DaQuan Jones Jersey,” Brady said. “At the end of the day, the road team. It’s really going to come down to execution. No one’s going to be able to do it for you.”, it’s not about old guys are going to win or young guys are going to win,Authentic Rishard Matthews Jersey, the home team

If the Titans have any hope of slowing down Brady, Womens Wesley Woodyard Jersey,the X factor might be defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

With Belichick as head coach, 41-27., he and LeBeau have faced off in the playoffs once: the 2004 AFC championship game that New England won in Pittsburgh

“The one thing you got to try to do is not let him read you like a book,Authentic Ben Jones Jersey, which he’s very adept at, he’s probably going to be pretty effective.”,” LeBeau said. “Whether you’re pressuring or whether you’re going coverage, if he knows where you’re going

“These are fun games to play in,Authentic DaQuan Jones Jersey, you’re in the position to succeed. Your coaches have put a lot on you. The team’s really relying on you. You’ve got to go out there and make the plays.”,” he said. “You’re out there

Patriots 37, Titans 24. “Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are going to have a field day against the Titans’ defense. But this game could be a lot closer than many people seem to think,Womens Ryan Succop Jersey, but they’re overmatched.”, particularly if Tennessee can limit mistakes. Marcus Mariota and Derrick Henry should be able to keep the chains moving. But the Patriots are five-time Super Bowl champs for a reason. The Titans will put up a fight

Patriots 30, Titans 23. “This is a case of chickening out because I have an impulse to pick the Titans to win this game. I think they can do it, and not just by getting all kinds of breaks. The Pats are not unbeatable, confident and free of pressure, for one thing. The Titans are talented, for another few things. I expect them to come out focused and making things happen on offense from the start. And then I expect Tom Brady to pull it out in the fourth quarter.”

Titans 20. “The Titans ran their way to this game last week,Patriots 24, as Derrick Henry ran for 156 yards in the upset of the Chiefs on the road. The Chiefs were 26th in yards per attempt against, but the Patriots are even worse with a 31st ranking. That could mean another big day for Henry, and I think Henry will control the football in an effort to keep Tom Brady off the field. It will work to some extent, this will be their chance to show none of it matters. Brady will have a good day throwing it, but I still think Brady will have his way with the Tennessee secondary. With all the talk of discourse inside the Patriots, as the Patriots move on in a closer game than expected.”

some of it over the trade of Jimmy Garoppolo. “Ooh, the dynasty is crumbling! Maybe the Patriots will be distracted and ripe for a big upset in Saturday’s prime-time game!” Yeah, while NE’s ground game will be fortified by the expected return of James White and Rex Burkhead. Titans safety Kevin Byard said this week his team plans to make Brady “look like Blake Bortles.” Um, sure. Just like Brady’s four-game Deflategate suspension kept the Pats from winning the Super Bowl last season, right? This team is as impervious to distractions as the rhinoceros is in the wild to that small bird perched on his tough hide. Sorry, Dolfans, good luck with that! Sidelight: This will be Belichick’s 37th career postseason game,Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft, but I give the Titans next to zero shot at beating Miami’s nemesis. Pats have won six in a row over Tennessee, which last won in Foxborough as the Houston Oilers (!) in 1993. As a head coach Mike Mularkey is 0-6 vs. New England. And the Titans will again be missing top RB DeMarco Murray here, surpassing two guys named Tom Landry and Don Shula for the most ever.”
