Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots (-13.5)
PickCenter: 72 percent on New England
The Titans have utilized my No. 4-rated special teams to get this deep in the playoffs, as their overall squad is minus-9 yards per game, but the Patriots' No. 2 special teams cancels out that edge. Tennessee had a 16-5 first-down deficit at halftime versus the Kansas City Chiefs and trailed 21-3 but rallied to win as Derrick Henry stacked 147 total yards after halftime. Quarterback Marcus Mariota averaged just three rush attempts per game in his first 10 games back from an early-season injury but has 18 carries in the last two games. However, his touchdown-interception ratio is still 15-16 this season.
