Patriots WR Hogan cleared for playoff return

Derrick Henry to start for Titans versus Patriots, could be the guy moving forward

Cornerback #21 Malcolm Butler and the Patriots warm up for practice at Gillette Stadium. Wednesday

That was back when the Patriots dynasty was just getting started. They are going to need to execute a flawless game plan in order to pull of what would be a major upset. Although it initially appeared the Patriots would be called for a false start, the Titans were called for a neutral zone infraction.

Playing in his first game since December 11 and just his second since Week 8 in October, Chris Hogan had only one catch, but it went for a touchdown that gave the Patriots a 21-7 lead at halftime.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft will sit down with head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady to "clear the air" of any lingering tensions, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported.

"Branch, 6'6" 325lbs, is a run-stuffer, and New England will benefit greatly from his return.

"They did a good job with the line game", Mularkey said. "It's a quick passing game". "We had to get out of some of our scheme we had with him, some of our zone scheme".

Davis added an 11-yard TD reception with 1:55 left in the game - and the Titans' season. Too many times, the Titans faced long yardage on early downs, which allowed the Patriots to ramp up the pressure on quarterback Marcus Mariota. "We show up to work and try to do the best we can do", he said. "We're all in on them". They're a diverse group of playmakers who have helped make this offense entirely unpredictable.

So now we're left with how to evaluate a Titans season that ended with the 35-14 loss in the AFC's Divisional round.

Philadelphia's defense staged a last-minute goal-line stand and Jake Elliott atoned for a missed extra point with three field goals as the Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons 15-10 to move into the NFC championship game.

British Transport Police said it was an "ongoing incident" and could not say when the station would reopen. A spokeswoman for East Midlands Ambulance Service said there were no reported casualties.


Rookie wideout Taywan Taylor dropped two passes that could have led to points and momentum to end the first half.

The Patriots have had their troubles with mobile quarterbacks this season - and there have even been not-so-mobile quarterbacks that have picked up yards on the ground against the defending champions.

That said, the Titans still have their share of questions to address during the offseason. He completed all five passes for 67 yards, including the last four to running backs for 55 yards.

The 6-foot-2, 222-pound Mariota ranked eighth in the league among quarterbacks with 312 rushing yards during the regular season despite dealing with hamstring, ankle and knee injuries.

Conklin was a first-round pick the Titans acquired after trading away the No. 1 overall pick to the Rams in 2016. Following losing 10 yards and then punting, the Patriots got the ball at midfield and scored a touchdown to go up 14-7.

"We did beat them the first time, so to have all the confidence coming out of there is interesting", Jaguars DT Malik Jackson says. "That first touchdown was an unbelievable catch".

"Nobody respects us. Nobody really expects a lot from us". Look for him to have a big game and play well if he is completely healthy. That's why they've been successful all these years.

- Danny Amendola, Patriots, caught 11 passes for 112 yards in New England victory over Tennessee. The Titans do have a few long-term cornerstones in place in safety Kevin Byard, cornerback Adoree Jackson and cornerback Logan Ryan, however, so there's reason to believe things will improve in that regard. And where exactly can you catch all the action this weekend? The lone loss came December 16, 2002, which was his second season as a starter.
