On to New England - The Titans March into the Divisional Round

On to New England - The Titans March into the Divisional Round

With the Patriots once again surrounded by controversy, Bill Belichick has adopted his favorite mantra as the defending Super Bowl champions prepare for Saturday night's divisional round playoff game against the Titans. In this game versus New England, the Titans will need more of Henry. All eight of them are good teams. Both times they've had that in the past four years, they've won the Super Bowl. "We're playing against a good team, Divisional round, and I'm glad we earned the chance to be here to do it, and we've just got to go take care of business".

Coverage of this game airs on CBS beginning at 8:15 pm ET from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA.

Johnson, a 2012 St. Augustine Prep graduate, is set to start at defensive tackle for the Titans. And while New England's offense revolves around Brady, the Patriots need to be able to run the ball effectively to make the play-action passes go.

The two squads met in Week 15, with the Pats winning 27-24 in controversial fashion after tight end Jesse James initially appeared to catch the go-ahead touchdown in the waning seconds, only to have it overturned. The Titans have Marcus Mariota and his one career playoff win, a 22-21 thriller at Kansas City.

This is why the Patriots will march on to next week's AFC Championship game, toward a sixth Super Bowl title and second in a row and toward rewriting the National Football League history books.

"We've dealt with some non-Tennessee subjects here over the last few days", Belichick said to close out his opening statement. "It's the same stuff, different day". TB12 has thrown 30+ passes in all but three games this season.

"(This season) has flown by.

"Throughout my years here I've seen a lot of negative, a lot of positive", Gronkowski said Tuesday.

While the Titans were pulling off their major comeback against the Chiefs, the Patriots were going through another bye week, but one that was filled with controversy. The legendary coach recently served as the defensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2004-2014, and lost to the Pats in the AFC Championship game on January 23, 2005, 41-27.

The only hope we have for competitive football is in Minnesota and Pittsburgh, where the two best defenses in football could be equalizers. They're good, as I said, in all three phases of the game.

We basically saw this factor come into play in the wild card round. "We know that every week with any quarterback". It doesn't really matter what happened outside of this facility. The Patriots (13-3) are almost a two-touchdown favorite over a Titans team that sneaked into the playoffs after losing three of its last five games and finished the season with a minus-22 point differential, the only postseason team in either conference to allow more points than it scored. "It's not about how many games you've played in".

It's a major improvement for the 2016 43rd overall pick out of Penn State, who was inactive in six of the first nine games of his rookie season past year.

"You just gotta ignore the noise and just focus on what we've been doing all year and that's preparing hard, studying our opponent, getting ready, mentally and physically for the big game, so what's going on on the outside, as a team, as an organization, just gotta keep grinding, keep going, keep doing our job".
