New England Patriots: 5 players to watch for vs Tennessee Titans

Top Moments of the NFL Playoffs Titans Rally Over Chiefs

On Saturday, his opposite number will be 24-year-old Marcus Mariota, making for the largest gap in age (16 years) between the starting quarterbacks in an National Football League playoff game. "I've already commented at length about that situation", Belichick said.

Cooks was the Patriots' marquee offseason addition, and some in the football-mad New England region might label him a disappointment even though he produced 65 catches, 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns. That's the fantasy stuff of comic books. This is Mariota's second start.

It was an impressive victory for the Titans, as they had to overcome a 21-3 deficit.

"He saw some of the things that he missed by trying to bounce some things", Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. Instead, he pulled out 30 minutes worth of inventive play-calling. As soon as the Pats build a lead, Belichick will pound it and use his ground game to initiate play-action.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Marcus Mariota for the Titans. And indeed they were. You will see a bevy of different packages and combinations showcasing each of these players so that their strengths are utilized best, but that does not mean this unit has been fantastic. And there was nothing flukey about the protection Mariota got last week, or his acceleration out of the pocket.

So be prepared to see a focused New England team this postseason with a great chance to be the first repeat Super Bowl champs since - who else? - the 2003-04 Patriots.

Keep in mind: The Titans' last win in Foxborough was 1993, back when they were still the Houston Oilers.

"It's hard to get to this point", Brady said.

While stories of their demise were being tossed around, the Patriots were gearing up to host a Divisional Round game for the eighth straight year. "We show up to work and try to do the best we can do". I know the fans will be into it. A frustrated one for much of the season, as his opportunities have been limited.

Paul Ryan Called Trump's 'Shithole' Controversy 'Very Unfortunate, Unhelpful'
Cedric Richmond (D-La.), claimed the president's comments are "further proof that his Make America Great Again agenda is really a Make America White Again agenda." Sen. "I thought about my own family".

Derrick Henry also was fantastic, showing folks what he can do when given the carries with DeMarco Murray (knee) sidelined.

Minnesota has the home field edge, the Vikings beat the Saints in Week 1, and the Minnesota defense allowed the fewest points per game during the regular season (15.8). Still relatively unknown, Henry remains underrated and offers great value on the individual markets. So I expect Marcus Mariota to skip his way to a large tally. Interior lineman Malcolm Brown has also been traffic this year and has the ability to be used as a pass rusher as well. It could be any of Eric Decker, Delanie Walker and Rishard Matthews who benefit.

More from ESPN: "Last week, our focus was only Kansas City". I just look at it and laugh, and I am pretty sure the entire world thinks of it the same way. "For a young guy like me, that's what you aspire to be". Because the Patriots are still monsters of offensive production.

No, the Titans won't beat New England.

Tennessee recognizes the challenge it faces against Brady.

When George's plan to opt out of his contract this coming summer and leave town in free agency leaked publicly, Pritchard had two options: Rebuild now or make one more title run and risk losing his star player with nothing in return.

"Not very many coaches have the record coach Belichick's gotten".

Malcolm Mitchell, who starred in last year's Super Bowl, has just returned from injury.

Normally the Patriots do a good job working against bigger backs, especially ones who like to make their living between the tackles. They consistently lost track of Travis Kelce (four catches, 66 yards, touchdown) last week before his concussion, so there'd have to be a major heel turn for the Titans to figure out a way to contain Gronk.
