AFC Divisional Round: Patriots Host Surprising Titans

AFC Divisional Game

Patriots Huge Favorites in AFC Divisional Round



The fans at Gillette Stadium will see a AFC Divisional Round Playoff game bewteem the Tennessee Titans and the New England Patriots. CBS will have the broadcast and kickoff is set for 8:15 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Patriots as -13.5-point favorites versus the Titans, while the game's total opened at 48. The line hasn't changed during the week.

The Titans pulled off a 15-10 home win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in their regular-season finale to earn a spot in the playoffs.

Patriots are Rested for AFC Divisional Round



The Patriots were a 26-6 winner in their most recent outing at home against the New York Jets. They covered the -16.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (32) made winners of UNDER bettors.

The Patriots have won the last six games between the teams. The Titans haven't won in Foxborough since 1993. They were the Houston Oilers then.

The New England defense has spent the week preparing for mobile quarterback Marcus Mariota. He is a third-year pro who can make things happen with his legs.

The Patriots could get both James White and Rex Burkhead back to help fortify a running game that has excelled because of Dion Lewis.

Titans Are Ready for AFC Divisional Foe



The Titans were a 22-21 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs. They covered the +8.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (43) made winners of UNDER bettors.

The Titans are two-touchdown underdogs to the Patriots.

Mariota  threw 13 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions during the regular season. He had two touchdown passes and one pick in the playoff win. One of the touchdowns passes actually went to himself. It came after Darrelle Revis batted down his pass before Mariota caught it and scored.

Mariota was  sixth in the NFL (Brady was first) in third-down passer rating.

Running back DeMarco Murray will miss his third straight game with a knee injury. The Patriots could get both James White and Rex Burkhead back to further fortify a running game that has excelled even without them thanks to Dion Lewis.
