Patriots Bury Titans' Marcus Mariota With Historic Pass-Rushing Performance

"He actually knows when to run and when to pass the ball when scrambling", Harmon said Wednesday.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis made his first career touchdown catch in a playoff game against the Patriots.

Just about everything New England did Saturday worked, with little counter from Tennessee. We'll see Saturday night. Seeing Tennessee in the playoffs was a big enough of a surprise.

New England also held Derrick Henry to just 28 yards rushing on 12 carries.

Atlanta is coming off an impressive victory on Wild-Card Weekend.

The Tennessee Titans brought some heat against a mobile quarterback in Alex Smith last week in Kansas City.

Plays such as the block, the TD pass to himself earlier in that game or the stiff-arm he delivered to Jacksonville's in Week 17 to essentially clinch the game have elevated the Titans and given them hope that behind No. 8 they can beat anybody. - Bill Belichick, on January 9, after having answered questions Monday about an ESPN The Magazine article that detailed friction between him, Robert Kraft and Tom Brady. The Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski missed the 53-yard field-goal attempt at the end of the half four plays later, but the tone had been set.

New England (14-3) will host the victor of Sunday's divisional matchup between Jacksonville and Pittsburgh.

The Titans appear to have some momentum on their side right now. They had 80 plays.

It started with the fullback split out wide to the left, eliminating one wide option the defense had to realistically worry about. Eagles quarterback Nick Foles managed the game effectively by completing 23 of 30 passes for 246 yards.

"I got more in the flow of the game", Henry said.

"We have to use this as motivation, " Mariota said after the game. New England, unsurprisingly, finished as the AFC's No. 1 seed and, naturally, got to sit on their butts during the first round of this year's postseason. The Pats will want to keep their defense off the field and keep Tom Brady on it.

The veteran pass rusher did not have the season he wanted to this year, only getting seven sacks on the season. If Tennessee can get pressure on Brady, it has a chance.

Unlike Kelce, Pro Bowl receiver/returner Tyreek Hill had a forgettable day against the Titans defense. Belichick's reputation for mind games and pushing the boundaries has people speculating that recent stories of a rift in the camp was a ruse to help him unite the team against outside influences.

Mariota was sixth in the National Football League in third-down passer rating this season, a list headed by the Patriots' Tom Brady.

Defensively, this is all about limiting Mariota.

To a man, every Patriots pass rusher credited the entire defense for the team's record-setting sack total. "We won some games, but I didn't play probably at the level I wanted to throughout the year, but that happens, and I have to learn from it and grow from it, and I will".

Beyond that, hanging over their heads is the possibility that offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels (to Indianapolis and Andrew Luck?) and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia (to the New York Giants?) are leaving to become head coaches. However, this isn't their year. The task will be tough for Tennessee. That generally doesn't end well for the opposing teams.
