TO THE GAME!
-Of any year, this is the one where the Pats needed the bye the most. They are starting to look old-ish in my opinion. They really are a 10-6 club that was gifted some wins way back in the fall.
-Everyone’s mother is saying that them Tits are built to win this game and I can’t disagree. Belichick is going to have to try to take rb Henry out of this game (says a silent prayer for the continued health of his hammy) and I don’t think he’ll be able to do it. I mean, he’ll probably end up with a stat line of 28 carries for 105 yards and that will be enough to carry the team to the win. He’s a battering ram and if he can get to the 2nd level he’s murder. Speaking of, he should get at least 3 passes this game because he does have a tendency to break a long one on the rare times he’s involved in the passing game.
-The Pats playmaker-less, running back passing game O (where have you gone, Sanu?) is going to be their undoing and it’s just a matter of time. Brady’s throws are still crisp 10 yards and in but any longer than that and things start to get wonky. That’s why he’s had just the one 300+ game in his last ten and why I think the D needs to score a six spot in order for New England to get it done.
-The weather (light rain throughout the game) might just make this tilt a boring mess but we’ll still watch.
-Prediction Time. I’ll go 20-17 Titans. They’ll have to 1. outscore the Pats in the 4th, and 2. get the last points of the game in order to pull this out.
