In Week 15, the New England Patriots face arguably the softest opponent on their 2015 regular season schedule, the 3-10 Tennessee Titans. Nursing another rash of injuries to a number of key players, the Patriots are fortunate that the Titans don’t present too much of a threat, although as we learned in Week 13 against the Philadelphia Eagles, you can never count out the underdog.
The last time these teams met was the 2012 season opener, and this writer missed the first half because of soccer practice (fun fact). The Patriots won that game 34-13 on the heels of some great play out of rookie defensive players Tavon Wilson (interception), Chandler Jones (strip-sack) and Dont’a Hightower (fumble recovery and touchdown). It was a sign of things to come, as you’ll read about in this article.
The Titans enter Week 15 losers of four of their last five games. They got thoroughly shellacked by the New York Jets last week by a score of 30-8.
