Titans-Patriots Projected Odds

Sean Koerner, The Action Network’s director of predictive analytics, uses his NFL Power Ratings to project odds for this matchup.

  • Spread: Patriots -5
  • Over/under: 44

Titans’ Path to the Playoffs

  • Straight-Up Record: 9-7
  • Against the Spread Record: 8-7-1
  • Over/Under Record: 10-6

The Titans’ playoff hopes hinged on a Week 17 win over the Texans, which they secured with relative ease. The bad news? Their postseason starts in Foxborough.

The Patriots eliminated the Titans in the divisional round of the 2017 season with a 35-14 home win, but that was a Mike Mularkey-coached and Marcus Mariota-quarterbacked Tennessee team. Now Mike Vrabel, a former Patriot, is on the sideline with the streaking Ryan Tannehill under center.

Patriots’ Path to the Playoffs

  • Straight-Up Record: 12-4
  • Against the Spread Record: 9-7
  • Over/Under Record: 7-9

The Patriots head into the playoffs without a first-round bye for the first time since the 2009 season, when they lost to the Ravens in the Wild Card Round — the only time they haven’t advanced past the opening weekend in the Tom Brady era.

Now the Patriots will have to face Kansas City, one of the four teams they lost to in the regular season, on the road if they survive the first weekend. At 42 years old, Brady will have to weather his toughest road to the Super Bowl yet for a chance to hoist another Lombardi Trophy.
