Keys to the Starting Lineup presented by CarMax: Can Titans run with Pats?

After opening the postseason with a bye week for the eighth consecutive year, the defending-champion Patriots (13-3) finally join the playoff fun Saturday night hosting the upstart Titans at Gillette Stadium.

  • It is going to be cold once the game starts and only going to get colder Titans will not be able to handle it
