Prediction: How close the game is ultimately will be contingent on Patriots turnovers, as New England has a 143-15 regular-season record in Bill Belichick's coaching tenure when it has a positive turnover differential. Tennessee's winning its first playoff game since the 2003 season was a good takeaway from the season, but there still remains a sizable gap between it and the AFC elite. Tennessee shocked many with a come-from-behind upset win over the Chiefs last weekend in Kansas City.
It has often been said that to be the best, you have to beat the best.
The Titans come to Gillette Stadium on Saturday night to face the Patriots in an AFC divisional playoff game - and everyone expects this to be an easy one for the home team. He put the Titans up 7-0 after one quarter.
CBS' top crew on the call: Jim Nantz (play-by-play), Tony Romo (analysis), Tracy Wolfson (sideline) and Jay Feely (kicking expert) will broadcast the game on CBS. Belichick said everyone on defense has to do his job.
If we learned anything from last week, it is that the underdogs can not be underestimated.
After receiving a first-round bye, the Patriots are 13.5-point favorites over Tennessee. The Patriots capitalised and turned what would have been a three-and-out inside their own 20 into a 16-play, 91-yard drive that ended with a four-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Chris Hogan. "We don't really take it for granted around here". Hence, all the pressure is on the Patriots in this game. In what was supposed to be his Year 3 boom, he turned in his worst National Football League regular season, throwing for a career-low 13 touchdowns and a career-high 15 interceptions. But I do think the Titans have some chance in this game. "He saw some of the things that he missed by trying to bounce some things. He's broken off a lot of long runs, running plays, screens".

Both the London mayor and Cambridge Econometrics admit that this analysis is not a precise forecast of what will happen. Mr Khan is warning that with just 10 months to go, time is running out.
Mularkey had galvanized the Titans late in the season, but he and offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie also must be held responsible for the team's offensive struggles.
"As an offense, I'll be the first one to say that we underachieved this year", left tackle Taylor Lewan said. Just a week after facing one duo of an elite tight end and speed receiver, the Titans defense will have to do it again in the divisional round of the playoffs. A combination of everything. A lot of the protection schemes that New England runs on Saturday will be based on those 3 players, and getting the ball out of Brady's hand quickly should be a goal. "We look at each other and can tell by body language: We're going to make this stop". There are many things that have to happen, but these six things could surely help them have a great opportunity.
Derrick Henry is a 6-foot-3, 247-pound running back who can pound away and keep the Patriots' offense off the field.
With people enjoying the product that he is, Rapoport also states that Tennessee could be turning to Henry as its No. 1 back moving forward.
"We want to let this momentum carry on into the next game", Henry said.
