The Titans' win over the Chiefs in Kansas City was their max out moment.

In Harrison's first game with the Patriots, he helped the team put the clamps on the New York Jets rushing attack, as they allowed just 40 yards on 19 carries. So Mariota will have to throw a clean game Saturday for the Titans to have a chance.

Everyone that I have heard agree the Titans have their work cut out for them if they want to shock the world.

If the Titans are going to hang in this one and try for an upset they will have to get craft and sneaky.

Brady declined to touch on his new documentary series set to drop on Facebook in the coming months, "Tom vs".

Frankly, there are a large number of people around town just like her, even hardcore Titans fans. "There are only 53 guys on the roster, so when someone goes down - and it's football, there's an opportunity for injury every week - you have to know exactly what's going on so you can step in".

During Brady's tenure the Patriots are 6-1 against the Titans. "Just do whatever I can to help the team win".

Tailgaters' beer froze solid.

"Henry has got a ton of skill, and he's got power, good vision", Belichick said.

We know the Patriots will be ready to face the Titans.

On a fourth-and-12, McNair hit Drew Bennett from the Pats' 33-yard line in stride down the left sideline. I'm trying to go out there and win the game. And this means we will never know who benefited most from the other - head coach or quarterback - as they're expected to ride off in the sun at the same time, albeit on different horses and in very different directions. James White caught 72 balls this year out of the backfield, ninth best in the league. He covers the Detriot Lions and the New England Patriots.

So fast forward to Saturday's game. Now Mike Mularkey is safe. Belichick is 6-1 against the Titans.

Thursday's news conference was Brady's first since an ESPN The Magazine article was published last Friday that detailed friction between him, owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick.

Tom Brady says his focus remains exclusively on football as the New England Patriots prepares to host the Tennessee Titans in their divisional-round matchup.

The Titans are going in to New England with nothing to lose and everything to gain. They are treating this game as a bye week. Despite Belichick's advancing years - the Nashville-born coach is 65 - it is not his coaching mortality that is necessarily on the horizon but that of his 40-year-old quarterback Tom Brady, who for all his talents can not play at an elite level forever. He has to avoid interceptions and fumbles. After he stunned the Chiefs in Kansas City, can he improve his play even more against New England?

The Patriots hit back hard after the article was published, issuing a joint statement from Belichick, Brady and Kraft refuting numerous conclusions reached - among them that Kraft ordered Belichick to trade backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to appease Brady, that Belichick was unhappy about coaching in New England and that Brady's personal trainer had created a divide in the locker room.
