Brady's uncharacteristic unevenness down the stretch, coupled with the revelation tucked in an ESPN blockbuster on tensions within the Patriots that his own coaches have seen "slippage" in Brady this season, has prompted the latest round of questions about whether age has finally started to leech Brady's brilliance.

Now it's up to Bill Belichick and the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots (13-3) to slow down Henry on Saturday night in their AFC divisional game. In fact, these extraordinarily large age gaps between QBs in the playoffs are rare and have always favored the older player. The drive culminated in a 4-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Chris Hogan in the back of the end zone that made the score 21-7.

While it all ended with Brady, it didn't exactly begin there. And while Mike Mularkey's offensive line isn't the same unit that it was a season ago, it still rates an edge over a suspect New England Patriots' defensive front.

Ultimately, Lewis was ruled down by contact after a 31-yard gain.

Spygate? The Patriots ran through a flawless regular season before losing in the Super Bowl.

The Titans (10-8) took an early 7-0 lead, but New England scored 35 consecutive points to take control.

The Patriots removed Hogan from the injury report, and he will play for the first time since December 11, when he caught one pass for one yard in a 27-20 loss to the Dolphins.

New England is the -175 favourite to win the AFC title again with Tennessee at +1800.

However, Kevin Pietersen had other plans and chose to put up a fight against the formidable Australian bowling attack. The five-match ODI series between Australia and England gets underway on January 14 in Melbourne.

Danny Amendola, renowned for his playoff performances, finally broke through with the first 100-yard receiving game of his postseason career; he led New England in both receptions (11) and receiving yards (112).

Tom Brady finished 35-53 for 337 yards and 3 touchdowns, setting a new NFL-record with his 10th 300-yard passing game in the playoffs.

The Titans are going in to New England with nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Playoff newcomer Stephon Gilmore shined in his debut on the big stage, allowing zero catches on balls thrown in his direction on a mere three targets. "It's a chess match with them where you got to think three or four plays ahead of time".

A dejected Marcus Mariota stood at the podium on Saturday night, his ankles still taped, and disappointed etched on his face. He was sacked eight times for total losses of 52 yards, with rookie Deatrich Wise Jr. leading the way with two. Flowers and Lee are also expected to be ready for action.

The biggest difference is at quarterback. "It just goes with the territory". Before getting injured, he was fourth on the team with 33 catches, but he was just one catch behind Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks.

Marcus Mariota completed 22 of 37 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns, but was under duress for most of the second half. Only two players in National Football League history have more receiving touchdowns in the playoffs: Jerry Rice with 22 and John Stallworth with 12.
