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

Tennessee hasn't been in the AFC Championship Game since 2003.

The Chiefs offense may have been poorly schemed in the second half, but that shouldn't detract from the fact that the Titans defense stopped everything that came their way as the game wore on. 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.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft will sit down with head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady to "clear the air" of any lingering tensions, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported.

The second quarter provided the answer: a resounding no. No one harnesses an us-against-the-world mentality better than the Patriots, who host the Tennessee in a divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium. Dion Lewis is another talented receiving-back for the Pats.

Perhaps there was more strife on the other sidleline. "He hit some holes (against Kansas City) that we got 5, 6 yards on them just by him hitting it with that big body and that big frame". But I think they grind it out against a team that is a lot more mistake-prone and has a lot less experience. While that question may still be out there for many to talk over, one thing that can not be questioned is the courage he has displayed in big moments for the Titans in his first playoff game. "But I feel like if we're on our stuff and we're just ready to go, I feel like it's going to be a really good game, and we can come out with a victory".

The Titans showed grit the week prior in erasing a 21-3 second-half deficit, but this game was just a different deal.

So which side should you back in Titans vs. Patriots? Chung allowed 32 catches for 320 yards and two touchdowns against the position this season. That was the last time it looked like the Patriots might lose.

Brady finished the game 35-of-53 passing for 337 yards and three touchdown passes, avoiding getting sacked.

Not only that, the 40-year-old Brady broke yet another record on the night, as he became the oldest starting quarterback in National Football League history to win a playoff game. He threw his 10 career postseason game with three touchdown passes.

The Titans have one thing going for them this weekend and that's the ESPN story that alleges unusual levels of conflict in the Pats' locker room. Marcus Mariota is the key. The Patriots have suffered some serious injuries this season, but still found their way to a 13-3 record in the regular season and a first-round playoff bye.

Against Jacksonville on December 31, Henry made up for a rough day running by taking a screen 66 yards for a touchdown. Mariota ran for 37 yards on four carries, but ran it just once for six yards after halftime. Mariota has 106 rushing yards over the past two weeks, and nine of his 14 carries (four kneel downs included in yardage) resulted in first downs. Don't expect that to affect the Patriots on the field.

Davis made a brilliant, one-handed catch while falling to the ground and the Patriots' Malcolm Butler close in coverage after not scoring during the regular season.
