James White #28 of the New England Patriots reacts with Tom Brady #12 after scoring a touchdown during the second quarter in the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Tennessee Titans at Gillette Stadium on January 13, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
That doesn't mean the Titans fear the Patriots. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Patriots are 13.5-point home favorites to beat the Titans, who opened as 13.5-point underdogs. Nonetheless, it may just be time to write a new chapter as a member of the Titans.
Tom Brady chuckled when he was asked after the game about his name being mentioned in a swirl of media reports last week about alleged bickering between himself, coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft.
The Patriots' game plan was to take away George and the Titans' rushing game. "It just so happened that I played there, but it's really just the next team in front of us".
There were two questionable calls in the first half that went in New England's favour.
Still, it was a bad sequence for the Titans at the end of the quarter, one during which they were outscored 21-0 after taking a 7-0 lead after the first 15 minutes.

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. Running back Derrick Henry only managed 12 carries for a mediocre 28 yards.
The Patriots put a spy on Mariota, which kept him in the pocket, and Mariota said the Patriots covered well.
"Who doesn't want to be apart of a good thing?" On the next play, McNair heaved one up for Bennett, who bobbled the ball before Patriots cornerback Asante Samuel knocked it away. He rushed for 156 yards last weekend and is facing a run defense that was 20th in the National Football League, giving up 114.8 yards per game.
Ryan was an underrated but highly valuable cornerback for the Patriots, often drawing the toughest receiving matchup. The Titans have Mike Mularkey and his one postseason career win. "When you get a chance to slice the jugular, you got to do it". He went on to start the final five games for San Francisco and went a flawless 5-0. "We seen that before".
