The Tennessee Titans face the New England Patriots on Saturday for an AFC postseason showdown. Here’s everything you need to know.

After an exhilarating come-from-behind win over the Kansas City Chiefs that featured the Tennessee Titans erasing an 18-point deficit, the Two-Tone Blue has the luxury of facing the No. 1 seed New England Patriots in the following round.

Despite the Patriots fielding a less-than-normally-talented roster and suffering through some injuries, Bill Belichick’s squad went 13-3 and sported the league’s best point differential (+162). This will be no easy task for the Titans, who showed their flaws in the first half of last week’s playoff win.

The Titans will need their defense to hold the Patriots offense to mostly field goals, and QB Marcus Mariota and RB Derrick Henry must build on their tour de force games from the previous week. On a frigid night in the Northeast, this should be a good one.

Where and When

The game will be played on Saturday, January 13 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. CT/8:15 p.m. ET.
