New England Patriots Offense Will Shine in Divisional Round

Mike Mularkey Reportedly Offered Contract Extension by Titans

The Patriots scored three touchdowns on three drives in a 12-minute span to flip the game on its head, with a 21-7 New England edge. Pittsburgh lost only once after that, at home to the Patriots in a game that decided the AFC's top seed. Tomlin's Steelers will play at home, along with Belichick's Patriots, but Payton has to take the Saints north to Minnesota's U.S. Bank Stadium - the site of Super Bowl 52. They are going to face off against the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, and it will not be an easy win by any stretch of the imagination. Marsh spent nine games with the Patriots while Day played 10 with the Jacksonville Jaguars. "This is a playoff game".

On Thursday in his weekly meeting with reporters, Brady declined to get into the specifics of a new documentary on the five-time Super Bowl champion quarterback's life called "Tom vs. It's about giving yourself the opportunity this time of the year to compete and play in games like this, and to win games like this". He ranked fourth-best in the National Football League among tight ends in both catches and receiving yards (807). New England advanced to the AFC Championship and ultimately won Super Bowl XXVIII. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was also selected to the All-Pro team, after catching 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns. The Falcons meanwhile, desperate for a return trip to the Super Bowl next month after the trauma of blowing a 28-3 lead against the Patriots in last season's showpiece, have shown signs of a revival in recent weeks, and ground out a battling 26-13 win on the road against the much-fancied Los Angeles Rams last weekend in the wildcard round. It went straight down after that as the Patriots prevailed, 35-14. New England's front seven must contain Henry as he is the key to this Tennessee offense. The Patriots are a 13.5-point favorite, according to Vegas Insider.

The Titans actually struck first in this game, driving 95 yards for a 7-0 edge - rookie Corey Davis' first career touchdown - to quiet the crowd.

However, Locker and Washington were both forced out of the game due to injury on the same play early in the fourth quarter.

To a man, every Patriots pass rusher credited the entire defense for the team's record-setting sack total. However, a 40-23 loss dropped their record to 8-8 and ended their Wild Card hopes.

That first factor is about to be one helluva big deal in this weekend's divisional round playoffs.

Senior Dawgs returned just for this opportunity
Yet Coach Lincoln Riley's play-calling didn't give Mayfield every chance to shine, which the coach acknowledged afterward. Linebacker Lorenzo Carter deflected the kick, setting up a Sony Michel rushing touchdown for the 54-48 win over Oklahoma .

Gillette Stadium in January is not a place for magical storylines involving New England opponents.

Matt Ryan tossed a 6-yard touchdown pass to Devonta Freeman to give the Atlanta Falcons a 10-6 lead over the Eagles with 5:41 left in the second quarter.

As is the case with the Patriots, the Titans are in relatively good shape health-wise heading into the game.

It was Brady's 10th career post-season game with at least three TD tosses, moving him past Joe Montana for the most in National Football League history. The Titans had few defensive answers for the Patriots' passing game when Brady went with a fast-paced tempo and struggled to move the ball consistently after their first touchdown. James White, Rex Burkhead and Chris Hogan have all been banged up, but should be available for this one.

Nick Foles completed a 15-yard pass to Alshon Jeffery with 1 second remaining to set up the field goal. But it's the most for a tight end.
