Plus, Mariota lacked the juice he displayed last week in Kansas City - during the Titans' wild-card win over the Chiefs - to make splash plays.
Can the Titans run the ball?
"I've been removed for so long", Britt said, via Patriots Wire. He was averaging 6.95 yards per-pass attempt, ranked 15th, and he had six touchdown passes to go along with five interceptions. That's the fantasy stuff of comic books.
The report comes a week after the Patriots denied there was friction among the trio, which reportedly stemmed from a dispute over the trade of backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco earlier this season.
He also is 6-0 against Mike Mularkey-coached teams. And indeed they were. This will actually be Tennessee's sixth contest over the last nine that has not been at home. "He was as good as I've seen him".
A week after speculation raged that the Patriots have devolved into a den of dysfunction after an ESPN.com story reported strains involving Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady and team owner Robert Kraft, the coach has put the blinders on himself and his players for what they hope will be yet another Super Bowl run.
Running back Rex Burkhead made some nice progress today during practice and has a legitimate chance to play against the Titans, according to a source.
As for the Patriots'defense, they turned the Titans' offense into a high school JV team wearing National Football League jerseys.

On a fourth-and-12, McNair hit Drew Bennett from the Pats' 33-yard line in stride down the left sideline. Tennessee starting quarterback Marcus Mariota left injured in the second quarter and didn't return.
Rookie wideout Taywan Taylor dropped two passes that could have led to points and momentum to end the first half. WR ERIC DECKER had TD catch last week. I still don't necessarily trust the D, but when Bill Belichick has extra time to prepare for you, he is a master at exposing your weaknesses and taking away your strengths. Because the Patriots are still monsters of offensive production. New England's been in the playoffs consistently.
The Titans were able to engineer an incredible upset against the Kansas City Chiefs to advance out of the wildcard weekend and will travel to Foxborough, MA. So that could mean a busier than usual night for Danny Amendola in the slot. Road weariness could become a bit of an issue especially in another cold atmosphere in New England. This game would be test if the Patriots are really of the same caliber with focus and determination to be in the Super Bowl again. That's more such players than the 11 other 2017 playoff teams combined (13). But it's the man mountain Rob Gronkowskiwho should be the star. And he has that elite defense to back him up if he begins to struggle, too. Seeing Tennessee in the playoffs was a big enough of a surprise. I like Gronk to get a ton of targets and to find the endzone.
