Titans vs. Patriots: Updated Odds, Stat Predictions for 2018 AFC Divisional Game
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is used to finding himself in the spotlight during the postseason.
When the Patriots open their playoff slate Saturday in the AFC divisional round against the Tennessee Titans, the 40-year-old quarterback should be front and center for all 60 minutes.
Brady will receive a challenge from opposing quarterback Marcus Mariota, but it won’t be enough to force the Patriots to sweat it out.
Below are a few predictions of what we think will happen Saturday night.
Last postseason, Brady averaged 379 passing yards per game on the way to a Super Bowl victory.
The two-time NFL MVP is expected to get off to a great start in this year’s playoffs against a Tennessee team that ranks 25th in passing defense.
Don’t be surprised if Brady racks up a few touchdown passes as well since the Titans have given up the most passing touchdowns of any remaining playoff team. Tennessee was torched for 27 passing touchdowns in the regular season, which is three more than both the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles conceded.
Brady comes into Saturday’s game as the league’s top passer, with 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns. He’s been efficient at home, with 18 touchdowns and two interceptions.
The longtime New England signal-caller has also found success against playoff teams, as he threw for over 250 yards in games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs. Brady’s best game of the season was a 447-yard showing against the Saints in Week 2.
With a trip to the AFC Championship Game on the line and a far-from-spectacular defense lining up across from him, Brady should produce one of the best playoff performances of his career.
Mariota Will Throw for 250 Yards but Fails to Influence Game with Legs
Mariota poses a different threat than Brady because he’s more mobile, but he will only be able to achieve success in one facet of the game on Saturday.
New England will stack the box to keep running back Derrick Henry under wraps, a move that will also lock down the edges and limit Mariota’s ability to scramble.
However, that game plan will allow the Oregon product to throw the ball around a little bit to Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews.
