    It'll be tough.


    Maybe Billicheat gets the flu an can't attend?!?!?!?

    We all know what it'll take. I hope we keep getting breaks, we're going to need them. Run game. Keep their offense off the field.

    Weather not horrible. Predicted for scattered showers and mid to upper-30s. Might be windy though.

    We'll have to beat the refs as well, don't forget the favorable calls they will always get over us.

    Obviously a tall order but as fans let's think about this.

    The Titans are traveling to Foxboro in the 2nd week of January to play a playoff game against a dynasty. The winner will advance to the semifinals.

    Now ask yourself how far his organization has come?

    AFAIC a win in Foxboro = AFC Championship.

    We know the recipe for this game. Run the ball. Shove Henry down their throats. Let Mariota call the offense from the get go (although I doubt this happens). Play our game. It'll be cold. Let's play ugly.

    LeBeau needs to dial up some confusing blitzes. TB obviously isn't mobile. Get after him, ruffle his feathers a little.

    They don't have a WR that scares me much. We should be able to manage that. I trust our run defense. Dion Lewis shouldn't get much running room.

    We have to watch out for Lewis / White as pass catchers coming out the backfield. That scares me. I expected Hunt to hurt us more in this area.

    Gotta double Gronk. Can't let a single play go with someone like Avery Williamson covering him (like the Kelce TD). Inexcusable. Byard vs Gronk, sometimes doubled with Jayon.

    Let Logan/Adoree/Tye cover Cooks/Hogan/Edelman.

    realistically we have a very very slim to none chance, but I'm hoping we can be respectable this game.

    Patriots RBs in the passing game vs LBs that cant cover
    Gronk vs a team that is historically bad against opposing TEs
    Pats throw 4-7 yards per play vs we play 5 yards off WRs

    for us to have a chance win this game Corey Davis HAS to show up, and Mariota can't second guess decisions to run.
    Stephon Gilmore has been terrible as their #2 and Malcolm Butler will most likely be on Rishard the whole game & Delanie will probably be on high watch all game. With LBs spying on Delanie, Mariota will have a decent amount of opportunities to run.
