Galloway's Austin Johnson relishes Titans' underdog role vs. Patriots

Adjust Comment Print

Tennessee's defense doesn't get the attention it deserves seeing as though this unit is holding team under 90 rushing yards per game.

Brady is a health obsessive and it is his determination to keep in good shape via the TB12 diet (sample quote: "I don't really drink tea, but I might drink a cup of bone broth") which has caused its own issues as Belichick saw his power over the Patriots locker room challenged by the increasing influence of Brady's trainer, in the team's facility.

"We've played quarterbacks like this where we do want to try to keep him in the pocket, but I think that's just the beginning part of it". "They got a bye week, so they're probably feeling really confident".

Hogan's 180 receiving yards set a new single-game Patriots postseason franchise record, topping Deion Branch's 153-yard performance in 2006.

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. I am just going in there trying to win games.

The Vikings defense will seemingly match-up well against the Saints offense but it will depend on how well the Saints running back core hold up. Brady is 11-2 in 13 divisional-round games since 2002, passing for 3,700 yards and 28 touchdowns. But it was here that Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey got creative.

The early story of the 2017 NFL Playoffs is the Tennessee Titans' surprising come-from-behind over the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium last weekend.

Since 2001, quarterbacks making their first or second career playoff start are 0-7 against New England.

"We may bend, but we're not going to break", he said. "I think he saw that, and, obviously, he's a quick, fast learner".

At least the Jaguars know they can win with their limited quarterback-they've been doing it all season long.

Derrick Henry also was fantastic, showing folks what he can do when given the carries with DeMarco Murray (knee) sidelined.

The Titans were able to engineer an wonderful upset against the Kansas City Chiefs to advance out of the wildcard weekend and will travel to Foxborough, MA.

Regardless, playing on Saturday always provides a potential advantage in advance of the conference title game, since it provides more time for preparation, recovery, and travel. Quarterback Marcus Mariota will have to be able to move the ball on the ground with his feet and will have to play the game of his life to give the Titans a chance to win. How many teams are left in the playoffs? He'll need to have another big game on Saturday if the Titans are going to pull off the massive upset.

Today's game will be Bill Belichick's 37th career playoff game as a head coach, breaking a tie with Tom Landry and Don Shula for the most in National Football League history. Brady vs LeBeau in the offense defense battle.

The Titans are massive underdogs in Sunday's AFC divisional playoff against the Patriots.

The respect between the two is mutual.

Wherever the truth may lie, Belichick refuses to do anything other than get ready for the next game. "It's been a good year for me, but I'm obviously not comfortable where I'm at", Johnson said.

George said he believes the 2018 Patriots' defensive game plan won't change much from 2004, which means loading up to stop the run. Against a Patriots team that has struggled some against the run this season after losing LB Dont'a Hightower to injury and dealing LB Jamie Collins last season, Tennessee could use another stellar game from Henry. And we should expect how this ends: more Patriots success.
