The Titans scored first as Marcus Mariota threw a ideal pass to Corey Davis, who made an incredible one-handed diving catch in the end zone to give the Titans a 7-0 lead with 1:14 remaining in the first quarter.

Despite the Titans getting the first score of the game, New England rattled off 35 consecutive points en route to the blowout victory.

Not only is it the postseason, but also the New England Patriots feel under siege, with a swirl of questions about strained relationships among the quarterback, coach and owner.

White ran it in from 6 yards midway through the second quarter, carrying a tackler over the goal line just inside the pylon to give New England its first lead of the game. In 2015, ESPN reported that some teams took to emptying out garbage cans at team hotels because they're anxious about the Patriots digging through them for information.

The Titans are likely looking to make their ground attack the focal point of their game plan.

Davis added an 11-yard TD reception with 1:55 left in the game - and the Titans' season.

The Titans are coming to Foxboro after rallying to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 last Saturday.

The defending Super Bowl champions expect Mariota to test them with his legs. "The reality of the National Football League is what we did this week has nothing to do with what happens next week". "Our guys did a real good job of kind of keeping their foot on the gas and keep pressing it". New England can not afford to give him that many yards on Saturday.

The Titans had a promising start when quarterback Marcus Mariota led a 95-yard touchdown drive. Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons gained 37 yards on three carries a week later.

Safety Duron Harmon and his buddies on the New England defense know they have to deal with Marcus Mariota's "unique skill" set when the Tennessee Titans visit the Patriots for Saturday night's AFC divisional playoff game. Quarterback Tom Brady produced another strong regular season, throwing for 4,577 yards with 32 touchdown passes and eight interceptions, earning selection to the AP's All-Pro first team.

New England awaits the victor of Sunday afternoon's game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars for the AFC title game.

"I kinda blacked out because I was so geeked off what I seen", said linebacker, one of the players who jumped on Mariota in celebration.

Playoff heroes new and old minted their names in Patriots postseason lore.

During that time, and with so many other pieces of the Patriots' offensive puzzle sitting on the sidelines because of injuries, Lewis had to raise his game beyond any levels he had ever come close to reaching in six injury-plagued seasons. One of the calls was for an offside that allowed the Patriots to avoid punting from their own end zone; they went on to score and extend the lead to 21-7. He says he feels good, but he knows it's not his decision whether he plays or not.

It wasn't an ideal start for the Eagles, who had a bye last week during the wildcard round, as they looked to take down a side who were in the Super Bowl a year ago. "Yeah, it's nice to get in the playoffs, but you don't play just to get in".
