Everyone can remember the 59-0 blowout when the Titans came to Gillette and the film review shows this game could have a similar vibe.
Head coach Bill Belichick says that the Titans tight end Delanie Walker is the real deal, and opposing teams have been able to take advantage of the deep play. Free safety Duron Harmon is really going to have to step up in the place of the injured Devin McCourty- and that goes for all of the league-leading injuries.
We spoke with our Titans coverage at Music City Miracles and they said to watch out for defensive tackle Jurrell Casey. Luckily for the Patriots, left guard Shaq Mason is coming off of his best game as a professional.

Early Games Rooting Guide
Chiefs at Ravens - The Chiefs are fighting for a playoff spot and it's a question of whether the Patriots want to face them, or the Steelers, or the Jets. The Jets won, and we're rooting for the Steelers to tip the Broncos, so we should probably root for the Chiefs to remain in lockstep if we want them to make the playoffs over the other two teams. Go Chiefs.
Panthers at Giants - Go Giants.
Falcons at Jaguars - The Jaguars can be eliminated from playoff contention this week. I kind of want the Jaguars to finish the season 8-8 and to win the AFC South, so I'll be rooting for them, but you can root however you feel in this probably-explosive offensive affair.
