Tennesse Titans vs New England Patriots 01/04/2020 – The New England Patriots kick off their Super Bowl defense when they face the dangerous Tennessee Titans this Saturday.

Tennessee hopes this will be enough to foil New England who holds the all-time regular-season series between the two teams.
Tennesse Titans vs New England Patriots 01/04/2020
After struggling in the early part of the season, Tennesse Titans found a way to get things together. The Titans have won 7 of their last 10 games which allowed them to clinch a playoff spot. Out to lead the Tennessee charge will be quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He has led the Titans in passing this season, averaging 2,742 yards, 22 touchdowns, and six interceptions. Complementing Tannehill will be A.J. Brown who has 52 receptions for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns to show. Defensively, the Titans need to do better. Towards the end of the season, they allowed opponents to score 22.3 points per contest. This is something they cannot afford against the Patriots.

New England Patriots
The New England Patriots find themselves in a very precarious situation. Instead of drawing a bye, they face the Titans in the wild card round. Quarterback Tom Brady’s game has been on the decline, meaning they need to get things done defensively. The Pats defense is the best in the league, allowing opponents only 14.1 points per game. However, their last five games saw them relax a bit, giving up 21.6 points per game. The Patriots need to tighten up defensively to make life hard for the Titans.
