All-22: Titans @ Patriots – Wild Card Game

I spent a lot of time on Monday going through film of the Titans-Patriots game. The 4th quarter was very telling as the Titans were able to control possession for most of the quarter and killed the clock. The Patriots offensive woes from the regular season continued to kill them in the playoffs.

Rashaan Evans had the game of his life on Saturday night. He finished with 8 solo tackles on 50 snaps.

Titans – 3rd down hold

One of the reasons the Patriots offense was bad all season was play calling. Throwing the ball to your rookie WR on 3rd down in good coverage is not ideal.

Derrick Henry was a beast on Saturday night. He had 34 carries for 182 yards and a TD. He was crucial to the Titans running the clock out late as well, picking up many crucial first downs.

Although the Titans didn’t have their normally great pass offense on display Saturday night, Tannehill made throws when he needed to.

Henry was the standout player of the game. His shear power and low base makes him so hard to bring down, especially in the open field.

Patriots WR struggled with separation all season long, as evidence by these Next-Gen stats.

The Titans travel to Baltimore to face Lamar Jackson and the Ravens on Saturday night.

Next breakdown will be the Saints-Vikings.
