Fired-up Brady on mission as Patriots face Titans test

New England Patriots: 5 players to watch for vs Tennessee Titans

In last Saturday's 22-21 wild-card win at Kansas City, Henry rebounded by setting a franchise playoff record with 191 yards from scrimmage as he helped the Titans rally from an 18-point halftime deficit. Running backs have always been a staple in this team's passing offense. 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. Kansas City's Travis Kelce was having success last week before he left the game with an injury. Henry's ascension to workhorse back has been, but now that he's here, some around him believe we're about to see his limitless ceiling.

Despite their offensive woes, the Jags did finish with the number two overall defense which could make it a tougher than expected task for the home team to close them out. "It will be some carry over, but it will be a little bit different".

For the third time in four years, reigning NFL Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots are the top seed in the AFC and have homefield throughout the playoffs. New England has a lot of weapons, but Tennessee has Marcus Mariota.

And amid reported turmoil involving Brady, owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick, the quarterback isn't likely to lose focus. But Brady says he's never doubted his team's ability to compartmentalize potential distractions. "They got a bye week, so they're probably feeling really confident".

It's a playoff game, so it's not like it's the preseason where I can go out there, 'Oh, it's Brady, ' and I'm chillin.

Since Henry entered the National Football League in 2016, the Titans are 12-0 when he has at least 11 carries, but 7-13 when he has 10 or fewer carries. "It's a very unique skill because a lot of guys, once they get scrambling, they're not even looking downfield anymore". He's 11-2 in 13 divisional-round games since 2002 and has completed 316 of 509 passes for 3,700 yards and 28 TDs in those games. Marcus Mariota is not a great quarterback at this present time.

But since 2001, quarterbacks making their first or second career playoff start are 0-7 against New England. "He's been the best for quite some time", Mariota said. That's what made the 2015 Heisman Trophy victor calling his performance "kind of soft" in Tennessee's regular-season finale stand out.

Said Belichick: "Coach LeBeau is as good as there is, as good a defensive coach as there is". (Punter Brett) Kern, (place-kicker Ryan) Succop, (punt and kickoff returner Adoree) Jackson have all had really good years for them. "When I play my best and I'm most comfortable, I just go out there and play".

Harrison factor: Can't you just sense a big contribution coming from James Harrison, the former Steelers defensive end who was signed by the Patriots just a few weeks ago after he was released by Pittsburgh? We all want to win for him, and we all want to play hard for him. Well, the Titans need him to be on, and don't be surprised if he does something out of the ordinary.

Brown hasn't played since he left a December 17 game against the New England Patriots in the second quarter because of a contusion in his lower left leg.

Britt last played in Tennessee in 2013.

Psst... there's an AFC Divisional Round game this weekend, and the Patriots are playing in it.
