While some celebrate the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs, who, on opening night, convincingly beat the New England Patriots, 42-27, are not making a return trip to Gillette Stadium this weekend, it is imperative to understand that the Tennesse Titans will present their own set of challenges for the defending Super Bowl champions.

As can be seen in the video above, on Patriots Roundtable, Mike Petraglia, Mike Dussault, and Bobby Krivitsky discussed one area in particular that concerns them about New England’s divisional round matchup against Tennessee.

In addition to discussing the Titans’ upset over the Chiefs, the Patriots Roundtable crew breaks down the Jacksonville Jaguars’ win over the Buffalo Bills in a game that had many people questioning their love of football but left Petraglia, Dussault, and Krivitsky appreciating a great defensive performance by both sides, while also cringing at times at the low-quality quarterback play that existed throughout this game.

You can also hear what the three had to say about what went down on the NFC side of the bracket, as the Falcons and Saints punched their respective tickets to the divisional round of the playoffs.


Titans stun Chiefs, punch their ticket to Foxboro – 0:20

Is Dion Lewis more important to the Patriots’ offense than Rob Gronkowski? – 13:14
