Tennessee Titans vs New England Patriots: Tom Brady and Co expected to dominate as Titans face huge task

14

NEW ENGLAND begin another play-off campaign with just as high expectations as all the previous seasons.

Nobody expects anything other than to see them win two home games at Gillette Stadium and once again represent the AFC at the Super Bowl.

Tom Brady is looking to reach the NFL's showpiece game for a remarkable eighth time, and win his sixth title.

Even at the age of 40, Brady is the best in the league and his focus, hunger and desire for success doesn't seem to fade away.

Only Pittsburgh, who take on Jacksonville in the other AFC clash this weekend, are expected to put up a fight against the perennial powerhouse.

Enter, then, the underdogs on Saturday night looking to spoil the party – the Tennessee Titans.

Marcus Mariota and Co find themselves in the Divisional Round after a brilliant comeback in Kansas City last week.

The Chiefs did help the Titans momentum with their second-half collapse, but Tennessee came from 21-3 down at the break to pull off a 22-21 victory.

Mike Mularkey's men plugged away with their brand of tough football based around a strong running game and defence, and it was enough to get past the faltering Chiefs.

Tennessee were underdogs last weekend, and they'll be even less fancied this time out in Foxboro.

But a team with nothing to lose is a dangerous one, especially when a first-round bye can often lead to early rust and slow starts.

WHO'S THE GOAT? Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Joe Montana… who is the best NFL quarterback ever?

The Titans will be without running back DeMarco Murray again on Saturday, so Derrick Henry will have to shoulder the load.

It's a big ask for a Tennessee team without much play-off or big-game experience, but they can play with freedom with nobody expecting them to get a result.
