With Henry shouldering the load, Tennessee has posted two victories in games it had to win to keep its season going.
Patriots vs Titans is here. "It doesn't really matter what happened outside of this facility and what we're trying to accomplish". "That's fine", he said. "We're playing against a good team, divisional round, and I'm glad we earned the chance to be here to do it". So it's easy for people to overlook us. They are treating this game as a bye week. So they will ask Foles to air the ball, and cross their fingers they get the 2013 version.
PREDICTION: It took tremendous persistence and some good luck for the Titans to win at Kansas City last week.
Marcus Mariota is knocked out of the game in the second quarter with a knee injury, and Zach Mettenberger comes on to complete 20 of 28 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns. Since 2001, they'll be the sixth team to square off against New England as a double-digit underdog in the postseason and the fourth team the Patriots have faced with a negative regular season point-differential. I've maintained that Mariota is at his best when he makes teams remember that he can get out of the pocket. I think there has been a lot of hype surrounding our team all season.
"Fate whispers to the warrior, 'You can not withstand the storm.' The warrior whispers back, 'I am the storm.' - Unknown" was the cryptic message that greeted Brady's 3.3 million Instagram followers one day this week. The following week he would rip the Kansas City Chiefs for 156 yards and a touchdown on 23 totes.
In a 1978 Divisional Playoff contest, the Oilers traveled to Schaefer Stadium and advanced to the AFC Championship with a 31-14 win, courtesy of three touchdown passes by Dan Pastorini and 118 rushing yards by Earl Campbell. The Titans were 25th in passing defense during the regular season, and were gashed by Alex Smith in the first half last week. Chris Johnson rushes for 128 yards on 17 carries for the Titans. Linebackers Brian Orakpo (seven) and Wesley Woodyard (five) give the Titans a variety of options to attack Brady, not counting backup linebacker Erik Walden (four). "We've actually, probably, played better on the road at times this year than at home".
Prosecutors say Mac spyware stole millions of user images over 13 years
Court documents say the 28-year-old watched and listened to people without their knowledge by hijacking computer webcams. But apparently that arrest was not connected to Fruitfly , even though this was when the spyware was discovered .
Under-the-radar potential X factor: Patriots safety Duron Harmon isn't an every-down player, but he also seems to be in the right place at the right time when games are on the line. That's more such players than 11 other playoff teams combined (13).
It was a vintage Brady performance, as the 40-year-old decisively answered the question as to whether his December performance - which wasn't up his usual high standard - was perhaps a sign of him finally starting to show his age.
Traditionally, Brady has picked apart Dick LeBeau defenses.
LeBeau has an NFL-record 45 consecutive seasons as a coach, with Belichick at 43. The largest spread ever in a Divisional Round game was previous year with New England -16.5 vs. Houston, and the Pats won 34-16.
The respect between the two is mutual.
"[Eagles] Coach Doug Pederson wants Foles to get back to being aggressive and letting it rip", ESPN's Tim McManus reported on Wednesday.
