Don't like this matchup at all.

We've not played a decent game since the Steelers game on 17th December!!
When we play this game it'll be pretty much 4 weeks since we played the Steelers.

In the meantime we've had a bit of a game against the Bills and a nothing game vs the Jets.
We didn't play well in either of them games, particularly on offense.

We've now had a week off and come into this game with no momentum.
I think it's a bit of a lose lose game for us.
We win but go into the AFC Championship with no real momentum and without really being tested against a top team in 5 weeks.
Or we lose and.....well that's unthinkable isn't it!!!!!!

I think I'd have much preferred to play a team like the Chiefs as I see them as a much better team (yeah I know they lost to the Titans ) and I think if we'd beaten the Chiefs, we'd have gone into the AFC championship game on a roll.

Having said all that, it's probably just the pessimist in me that is worrying as this is matchup, that on paper we should walk, and everyone is saying as much.
When everyone is saying we'll easily win, that is when I start worrying :-)

Yeah, hope they don't blow it. Let's go Pats. Pats vs Steelers would be more interesting.

maybe the refs were saving up there Patriots points and we now use it to hurt them when it counts

If that Titans D plays like it did against KC it could be closer than some think...but the Pats will shut down the run and make MM beat them through the air...Pat win by 10+

I really don't think we'll be able to shut down the run personally - our LBs are awful, and unless Malcolm Brown/Trey Flowers play outta their minds on the D line, Henry will cause us a lot of problems. I'm pretty comfortable with our secondary against their weapons, we should be able to cover the pass pretty well.

Brady should carve up the Tennessee D. Tennessee's played the 3rd most man coverage this season, which means Gronk is going to abuse whoever is put on him, and Lewis/White out of the backfield will be a handful too. And if they revert to the LeBeau zone blitz of past seasons, Brady has always destroyed that from when they used to play against Pittsburgh

Lol @ the Pats fans for pretending this will be anyway close.

Titans 13-37 Pats.

the Patriots are currently 14 point favourites.think there was a stat that in games favoured by 13.5 point or more at kick-off in the Belichick era the Pats are 32-1 in those games with the only loss been to the Cardinals in 2012.

the Patriots had a full attendance at practice today for the 1st time since 29th September with Hogan and Van Noy totally removed from the injury report.

Titans have already ruled DeMarco Murray out again.
