New England Patriots vs. Tennessee Titans (Samstag 2:15 Uhr PULS 4)      

  • Tennessee clinched a playoff berth for the second time in the past three years. The Titans won at least nine games for a fourth consecutive season, the franchise’s longest streak since the Oilers strung together seven winning seasons from 1987-93.
  • New England (37) needs a win to extend its NFL record to 38 postseason victories. Pittsburgh ranks second all-time with 36. The Patriots have been to the Super Bowl in four of the past five years, including a victory in Super Bowl LIII last season.
  • Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY is the NFL’s all-time postseason leader in games (40), passing attempts (1,589), completions (1,005), passing yards (11,179) and touchdown passes (73).
  • New England wide receiver JULIAN EDELMAN (115) has more postseason receptions than all but Pro Football Hall of Famer JERRY RICE (151). Edelman (1,412) also ranks second behind Rice (2,245) in career postseason receiving yards. With 100 receiving yards Saturday, Edelman would have seven 100-yard games in his postseason career and claim sole possession of No. 2 on the NFL’s all-time list, breaking a tie with Pro Football Hall of Famer MICHAEL IRVIN (six). Rice (eight) owns the league record.
  • Tennessee quarterback RYAN TANNEHILL led the NFL with a 117.5 passer rating, the fourth-highest single-season mark among qualified passers in NFL history.
  • DERRICK HENRY, who led the NFL with a career-high 1,540 rushing yards, has averaged 149.3 rushing yards over his last six games with 10 rushing touchdowns in that span.
  • Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. BROWN has four touchdown catches of at least 50 yards in 2019 and joined ISAAC CURTIS (five in 1973), WILLIE GAULT (four in 1983) and Pro Football Hall of Famer RANDY MOSS (five in 1998) as the only rookies with at least four touchdown receptions of 50-or-more yards since 1970.
