I really want to lean toward the Titans in this game, as I think every non-Patriot fan in the nation would love to see the New England dynasty come to an end. However, I just can’t bring myself to that conclusion with this Titans team. They have impressed recently, and they certainly have been a better team since Ryan Tannehill took over the quarterbacking duties. But the Patriots are still the Patriots, and they always show up the heaviest when it matters the most. Despite many people counting New England down and out, and beyond their prime, they consistently get things done in the playoffs, especially when the game is played in Foxboro. I think this game will be another low scoring affair, and the Patriots rely on their tough defense to slow Tennessee down enough to seal the victory. I am picking the Patriots and taking the Under.
Straight Up Pick: New England Patriots
Against the Spread: New England Patriots -4.5
Over/Under: UNDER 43.5
