Patriots turn to focus to Titans, not controversy

Indianapolis Colts defensive back Kenny Moore talks with Tennessee Titans defensive back Logan Ryan

Murray was diagnosed with the injury December 26 and did not play last weekend in the Titans' wild card rally over the Kansas City Chiefs. When the Patriots play their game, they can beat anyone.

But whether or not you agree with the Jimmy Garoppolo trade and regardless of your theory as to why it was made, the Patriots host the Tennessee Titans this Saturday night at Gillette Stadium. No one has been a bigger supporter of Mike Mularkey than I have over the last two plus seasons. They were going to have to be happy with just making the playoffs for the first time in years.

Knowing New England head coach Bill Belichick and future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady, they will only use that as motivation to show everyone they are still more than capable of working well together for the best interests of the team.

The last time the Titans traveled to New England in the regular season was December 20th, 2015.

Sunday's divisional games see the Jacksonville Jaguars visit the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tennessee owner Amy Adams Strunk shot down speculation that Mike Mularkey's job is at risk, saying her coach is going nowhere after helping change the Titans' culture and getting their first playoff victory in 14 years. "I'm not a social media guy. We don't know yet", Mularkey said at the time.

One thing, besides championships, the Patriots have become known for is blocking out distractions. While he didn't speak about it at length, Belichick simply stated that he didn't "have anything to add to" his past comments on the situation. "The reputation that Coach tries to get us to have is just ignore the noise - ignore the noise from the outside and I feel like that's what myself and a lot of other players have been doing". That's what you want to do - be consistently good and win consistently.

Despite falling behind 21-3 in the first half, the Titans and starting quarterback Marcus Mariota caught fire down the stretch, scoring a trio of touchdowns to win 22-21. Danny Amendola contributed 659 yards and five touchdowns in 61 catches. The Chiefs' weakness just so happens to be the Patriots' weakness: Run defense. "But he always has his eyes downfield - always knows when to run, when to throw the pass, I would say his touch on the ball, too, that gets people open when he's scrambling". It's a big task to go out and win a playoff game and play against a good team, divisional round. Their plus-49 differential is the third highest in the NFL.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It was uncertain exactly when the time would come, but we are likely witnessing the passing of the Tennessee Titans' running back torch from DeMarco Murray to Derrick Henry.

With players like linebackers Brian Orakpo and Wesley Woodyard, along with defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, Tom Brady will need to have his offensive line in full protection force.

"This is a playoff game".
