New England Patriots 'take the challenge' of Derrick Henry

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski catches a pass for a touchdown in front of Tennessee Titans linebacker Avery Williamson in the first half of an NFL football game in Foxborough Mass

He doesn't have the same Hall of Fame presence as Brees, but that doesn't mean the Patriots aren't anxious. Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau said Brady is capable of picking teams apart if he knows what's coming. 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. Defensively the Titans ranked No. 13 in total defense, 4th against the run and 25 in pass defense.

Frankly, there are a large number of people around town just like her, even hardcore Titans fans.

King said Tuesday on WEEI's "Dale & Holley with Keefe", via NESN's Ricky Doyle: "I know that Robert Kraft in the past, when he feels he has been wronged, or when he wants to get his message across, he will get his message across somehow, someway". Wise played in bowl games each of his final three years at the University of Arkansas, but this will be his first true win-or-go-home endeavor. For the Titans, hopefully he can be the player they hoped he was for one night while helping his fellow secondary teammates to some things to look for when it comes to Tom Brady. It's a big task to go out and win a playoff game.

Football is a game of territory.

In the end, the Pats will still prevail with pretty boy Tom Brady. S Kevin Byard tied for league lead with 8 INTs ...

Brian Orakpo has been a solid addition at linebacker for the Titans since he arrived in 2015. This line is continuing to climb but with Tennessee's offense being so far behind New England's and this one being in Foxboro the two-touchdown line seems appropriate. But an Angry Patriots team is a scary Patriots team, so this could go either way. On special teams, the team did a nice job of covering kickoffs and making sure that the Chiefs offense did not have any easy situations due to field position. James White caught 72 balls this year out of the backfield, ninth best in the league.

I believe it is vitally important to come to a bipartisan solution to the immigration and border challenges we face today. Watch Trump make those comments below, via Fox News. "I'm incredibly proud of our diversity".

Mike Mularkey's men plugged away with their brand of tough football based around a strong running game and defence, and it was enough to get past the faltering Chiefs.

WKRN anchor and New England native Neil Orne returned the smack talk, "We wanted to give you tips on how to eat true Nashville Hot Chicken, but you won't need it".

The Titans' running game sputtered throughout much of the 2017 season, but they may have found a recipe for success in Saturday's win over the Chiefs. The Titans haven't won at New England since 1993 and have covered just one of their past five there. Some were small (Tyrod Taylor), some were big (Ben Roethlisberger), some were Supermen (Cam Newton) and some were Saints (Drew Brees). Last week, Henry ran like a bulldozer, plowing his way for 156 yards and a 6.8-yard average. The Titans will once again be without veteran running back DeMarco Murray, who is dealing with a knee injury.

It's called "Wild-Card Weekend" for a reason, and the four weekend games lived up to their name! Henry managed just 51 yards and 1.8 yards per carry against the Jaguars, and afterward he felt like he ran soft.

Henry is more than big, New England safety Devin McCourty said. RB DE MARCO MURRAY has 225 scrimmage yards (112.5 per game) & 2 rush TDs in 2 career postseason games. Alan Branch will be asked to step in and shut him down. It will be a closer game then most expect, especially if Marcus Mariota manages to keep his composure in the pocket.
