Can the Titans make it to the Super Bowl?

Wide receiver #15 Chris Hogan and the Patriots warm up for practice at Gillette Stadium. Wednesday Can the Titans make it to the Super Bowl?
Kenny Thornton | 14 January, 2018, 07:36

"They're the champs and these are the types of teams you've got to beat if you want to be the champs", says Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey, who is 0-5 against the Patriots.

The Titans know that another slow start will likely result in a loss against the Patriots. He is also a member of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. You know they are going to run the rock.

With that being said, New England should still be able to fend off Marcus Mariota and Co.

Hogan missed seven of the final eight games of the regular season with a shoulder injury, which he suffered against the Los Angeles Chargers on October 29. Just a week after facing one duo of an elite tight end and speed receiver, the Titans defense will have to do it again in the divisional round of the playoffs. For New England it's just a matter of making this game a battle between two quarterbacks.

With two semi-elite cornerbacks (Butler has his days), it allows the defense to take chances with other players and use different coverages. Having discussed it during paid appearances on national broadcasts, Brady didn't get into details - but he did note that dealing with potential distractions is no big deal after so many seasons. After all, this is the playoffs and this is Tom Brady.

While Roethlisberger probably will play far better than that, the biggest challenge for Jacksonville could be stopping Le'Veon Bell in the running game.

The turnover differential can often decide football games. In addition to being double-digit dogs, the Tebow Broncos (minus-81) and Osweiler Texans (minus-49) had ghastly point-differentials in the regular season. Nevertheless, Titans' All-Pro safety Kevin Byard tied for the league lead with eight interceptions on the 2017 campaign.

Markram shines as Proteas make solid start to second test
Meanwhile, Markram reached his second Test half-century off 81 balls, just before the break. "Massively disappointed", he said. Wriddhiman Saha was ruled out of the match due to hamstring injury, Parthiv Patel was picked to replace him.

Brian Orakpo has been a solid addition at linebacker for the Titans since he arrived in 2015.

Can the defense stop Brady?

This, of course, has never been a problem for the Patriots.

"All (Bennett) had to do was catch the ball, " McGinnis sighed. Since 2001, they'll be the sixth team to square off against New England as a double-digit underdog in the postseason and the fourth team the Patriots have faced with a negative regular season point-differential. In what was then the coldest game in Oilers/Titans history (4 degrees at kickoff), the Titans fell to the Patriots by a final score of 17-14. According to Rapoport, he said the Titans "would have no dead money" if it decides to cut Murray and that the franchise is 'ready to pass the torch'. To me, a steady diet of Derrick Henry (DeMarco Murray has already been ruled out) with some Mariota runs mixed in is a recipe to keep things close. In receiving, Delanie Walker posted 74 yards while Henry added 35. The question is if forcing New England to become one-dimensional will work out in Tennessee's favor.

Offensively, the Patriots are averaging 28.6 points and 394.2 total yards (276.1 in passing and 118.1 in rushing) per game. An intentional-grounding call and holding penalty on back-to-back plays put the Titans in a third-and-23.

Marcus Mariota and Co find themselves in the Divisional Round after a brilliant comeback in Kansas City last week. Reliable for this Tennessee offense. "He's broken off a lot of long runs, running plays, screens". Danny Amendola contributed 659 yards and five touchdowns in 61 catches. It's all about containment for Matt Patricia's defense. It's just going out there and trusting and believing that we can win the game.

The red zone needs to continue being a strength for this defensive unit. Tom Brady passes for 380 yards and six touchdowns, including five in the second quarter and three to Randy Moss. Bend, but don't break.
