Even some Patriots are starting to doubt Tom Brady

14 Января 2018

The top seeded New England Patriots will host the Tennessee Titans in an AFC Divisional Round matchup on Saturday. According to Rapoport, he said the Titans "would have no dead money" if it decides to cut Murray and that the franchise is 'ready to pass the torch'.

While these three players are not the stars of the game, look for each of them to try and leave their mark on the contest somehow, especially in crunch time. The key will be to protect him down the stretch during this playoff run. Henry's physical style overpowered the Chiefs, and his runs got longer as the game went on. The Patriots defense holds the Titans to minus-seven net passing yards.

The Patriots have had a week off to prepare. "So we've got to take care of business and start winning games like this to get the respect that we desire". "When you talk about the way I see things, the way you guys see things, the way the writer may see things, the way Coach Belichick may see things, everyone has different truths based on their perspectives".

The pressure is all on Brady and his Patriots, but he's so used to that by now. The team relied on Dion Lewis and the ground game. Running backs James White, Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead all missed time at some point. Who can forget his dominant showing in the AFC championship game, when he caught nine passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns to lead New England to a 36-17 blowout win over the Steelers at Gillette Stadium? Aside from one 40+ yard reception, his day was defined by drops, a lack of targets, and excellent coverage on special teams. The Pats are averaging almost 400 yards per game and 30 points at home. He'll need to have another big game on Saturday if the Titans are going to pull off the massive upset. "I do want to know why we're here, where we're going; trying to find that deeper objective". This will actually be Tennessee's sixth contest over the last nine that has not been at home.

Yet on WEEI's "Kirk & Callahan" radio show this week, Brady did not exactly dismiss reports that all was not well in the New England organization. On the positive side, there is something to be said about the momentum that the Titans have after the surprise win and the fact that no one is picking them.

As for the Brady-Mariota matchup, it marks the second time they will face each other, though Mariota injured his knee early in the first matchup - a 33-16 Patriots win on December 20, 2015 - and played only 19 snaps that day.

Henry finished second in the National Football League in fourth-quarter rushing yards during the regular season, and he gained 85 yards on eight carries in the final 15 minutes against Kansas City.

Titans running back Derrick Henry has amassed 308 total yards and two scores, including two back-breaking plays versus Jacksonville, to seal a playoff bid; and again last week versus Kansas City, to seal a playoff win.

"He does a good job of taking care of the ball, period", Belichick said of the No. 2 overall pick in 2015.

Of the Patriots being 13 ¹/₂-point favorites to win, Lewan said: "I don't give two [expletive] one way or the other".

"Again, I think it's going to be about how we play and not necessarily where we're playing", he added. Henry will be starting his third straight game with DeMarco Murray already out (right knee).
