New England Patriots team grades vs Tennessee Titans Divisional Round
The Patriots passing offense was okay to end the season. It seemed like injuries were finally catching up to them and Tom Brady was showing signs of actually being mortal. That week of rest did the Patriots well, as their passing game was on point.
With their full complement of players, the Patriots aerial attack was unstoppable. Brady was excellent, taking full advantage of the Titans weak points defensively. Running backs and the middle of the field is where the Titans struggle, and that is where Brady attacked.
Danny Amendola led the way with 11 receptions for 112 yards. Rob Gronkowski added six receptions for 81 yards and one touchdown. Dion Lewis caught nine passes for 79 yards, while James White caught four for 29 yards and a touchdown.
All four of those players fit the bill and helped the Patriots offense overwhelm the Titans. Brady completed 35-of-53 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns. The offensive line did great, as Brady wasn’t sacked once and was only hit four times.
When you give Brady the time to throw like he had against the Titans, he is going to pick you apart. The Titans witnessed that first hand, as they had no answers for the potential 2017 MVP.
