Patriots rout Titans, head back to AFC title game

Patriots rout Titans, head back to AFC title game

It was his 26th career playoff victory (which is more than all but three National Football League franchises not named the Patriots), and Brady became the oldest QB in National Football League history to win a postseason game.

Later in the half when the Patriots were up 14-7, they were punting deep in their own end, but Tennessee jumped offsides which gave the Patriots a first down.

Considered a weakness of the defense by many for much of the season, the Patriots' pass rush has generated 18 sacks over the team's last three games.

But others have wrestled with staying, feeling unsure whether they're protecting US influence or contributing to its erosion. The U.S. ambassador to Panama is stepping down, saying he can't faithfully serve the Trump administration apolitically.

The team disputed several aspects of ESPN's report, citing "several inaccuracies", and sent out a statement in which Kraft, Belichick and Brady said, "We stand united". "It just goes with the territory", Brady said of this latest controversy. The guy just plays hard consistently. They're one win from making it to their third Super Bowl in four seasons, and their eighth Super Bowl of the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era. Brady said during the week that he had no problems with Garoppolo and chafed at the implication that he was threatened by his presence.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is an ageless wonder.

In the end, the controversy did nothing to derail Brady and the Patriots.

He continued, "Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed".

Against Jacksonville on December 31, Henry made up for a rough day running by taking a screen 66 yards for a touchdown.

Although the Patriots might have received some favorable calls from the officials in that early span, including a shaky offensive pass interference call against Eric Decker and a Titans offsides on a punt for an automatic first down, they also dominated the game.

"Being on the field is a great place", he said. You can talk all day about what you're going to do or what you can do, until you have to do it. "He does everything we can ever ask him", left tackle said. "So, it's going to be all 11 guys kind of playing their job with trying to contain him". And this means we will never know who benefited most from the other - head coach or quarterback - as they're expected to ride off in the sun at the same time, albeit on different horses and in very different directions. From the tuck rule game to Tim Tebow's unlikely (and short-lived) postseason cameo, the New England Patriots have found a home on Saturday nights in the second weekend of the playoffs. He's played just one game since October 29 - a December 11 loss to the Dolphins - and he only caught one pass for one yard in that contest. New England is 13.5 point favorites, so it is clear that bookmakers believe the Patriots will have a relatively easy time with the Titans. Despite the Titans getting the first score of the game, New England rattled off 35 consecutive points en route to the blowout victory. The Patriots' defense dominated the game after halftime. Case in point: Here's a play that no one will remember after tonight, an incomplete pass just before the Patriots scored their third touchdown against the Titans on Saturday. The Patriots had to settle for a 31-yard gain, but it set up White's first touchdown as the Patriots answered Tennessee's score.

Then, with the wind in the next quarter, the Eagles kept the Falcons so off-balance Atlanta took two timeouts in three plays. They were 6-for-13 (46 percent), running back Jay Ajayi cashing in three of them, the longest off a 32-yard screen pass.
