Tennessee Titans vs New England Patriots: Game Prediction

The Titans reporter/radio host reported Friday on the team's travel delays. Tennessee, remember, needed to win in Week 17, against a top contender no less (Jacksonville), just to punch their ticket to the postseason. The Patriots' taciturn head coach isn't going to admit to any rift with his Hall of Fame-bound quarterback and risk upsetting the pair's meticulous plans for beating the Tennessee Titans. For the Tennessee Titans, this year's trip was even more hard than usual. Tom Brady has had another spectacular year at the helm for Bill Belichick. "Patriots first team in National Football League history awarded back-to-back bye weeks before the AFC Championship". They will be facing a Patriots team that has had some distractions since the last time they played.

Behind the prowess of Byard and the rest of the vaunted Tennessee defense, the Titans will once again look to complete the impossible. The Titans run defense is stout and should contain New England there.

Donald Trump was there on the sideline before the game, talking to his friend Tom Brady. They've scored at least 30 points three times in their past seven games. However, Brady suffered a relative skid to end his season, and it's caused some panic entering the playoffs. He picked up 46 yards on eight attempts in the playoff win over the Chiefs last Saturday. Brady's production did dip, but no Patriots fan should worry about Tom Brady's late season skid. The Titans did well to get this far in the season, but it's time for the best teams in the league to shine. Rookie cornerback Adoree' Jackson and outside linebacker Brian Orakpo forced three fumbles, each, this year.

New England jumped out first thanks to a 41-yard touchdown from Brady to Bethel Johnson. Brady reiterated on Thursday that his mind remains on the field.

This, of course, has never been a problem for the Patriots. Most of the damage has been done on the edges, but teams have found running room more often than not regardless of approach in 2017.

No, the Titans won't beat New England. With Burkhead paired alongside Dion Lewis, this could be the best Patriot rushing attack since Corey Dillon's great 2004 season.

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was mostly unflappable in leading his team back from an 18-point halftime deficit to beat Kansas City - the largest comeback on road in Super Bowl era. The Titans must pressure him and force bad throws to have a chance. This is a big mismatch heading into Saturday's tilt.

Running back Derrick Henry managed just 24 yards on 11 carries.

DeMarco Murray already has been declared out for a third straight game for Tennessee, leaving the backfield to Henry. Here are five Patriots to keep an eye on this weekend in their game against the Titans. The question is if forcing New England to become one-dimensional will work out in Tennessee's favor. He ran for 88 yards last week! It will take a combined effort from Alan Branch (back from injury), Elandon Roberts, Kyle Van Noy, and others to keep Henry contained. The Super Bowl champs have also given up big passing performances in recent games to Tyrod Taylor (281 yards), Ben Roethlisberger (281), and Jay Cutler (263), among others. Reliable for this Tennessee offense. White isn't much of a threat running the ball, but there aren't many better receiving backs in the NFL. He's had a lot of success bouncing some runs. It's all about containment for Matt Patricia's defense. That's what we're getting paid for, so to be a professional is to put everything aside and go out there and do the best you can for the team and try and help us win.

Their red-zone defense is probably one of the tops in the NFL. It's on them to make sure he fails. Bend, but don't break. Trading field goals for touchdowns is a useful strategy.
