Patriots WR Hogan cleared for playoff return

Running back #34 Rex Burkhead and the Patriots warm up for practice at Gillette Stadium

The NFL playoffs usually mean the New England Patriots, who are in the postseason for a record-tying ninth consecutive year.

For the Pittsburgh Steelers, they'll be waiting until tomorrow afternoon for their chance to play in back-to-back AFC Championships.

New England clinched its seventh straight appearance in the AFC championship game with a 35-14 victory over Tennessee.

"Tom Brady's going to light up the Titans tomorrow".

"Noooo", he responded sarcastically, when a reporter asked about Brady's name being mentioned in a negative light.

"I've been around long enough", Brady said.

Despite their offensive woes, the Jags did finish with the number two overall defense which could make it a tougher than expected task for the home team to close them out. Before getting injured, he was fourth on the team with 33 catches, but he was just one catch behind Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks.

"All the hard work we put in is for these moments", White said.

The distance makes it even more exciting, according to Davis.

Mariota, who had an 87-yard touchdown run in 2015, his rookie season, ran for 60 yards on 10 carries in the regular-season finale.

The Spartans (16-3, 4-2) are struggling, losing two of three games with an overtime win over Rutgers in between the setbacks. His presence makes the game plan change tremendously for other teams and that curveball puts them over the top in Lubbock.

Wichitans react to President Trump's comment about Haiti, African countries
Republican leaders were largely silent, though House Speaker Paul Ryan said the vulgar language was "very unfortunate, unhelpful". Ronny Jackson, in a statement released by the White House, said the examination "went exceptionally well".

People from s***hole nations unwanted in United States , says Trump
He is also a design engineer in the defense industry and a Haitian immigrant who says the portrayal of his country is offensive. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.

Titans Coach Mike Mularkey said that Mariota was hampered when he tweaked a quadriceps muscle. But Mariota said it was no excuse. "You've got to go out there and make the plays".

"In 18 years, I've never celebrated when someone has been traded, been cut", the 40-year-old added, describing the report as "completely wrong". Brady led them to three second-quarter touchdowns to take a commanding 21-7 lead into the locker room.

"You don't play to come and lose in the divisional playoff. In fact he's probably closing in on the best ever", LeBeau said. "Obviously, this is the blueprint".

Who the Public Likes: New England. It opened the week as a 13-point underdog, and prior to last week hadn't won a playoff game since the 2003 season. RB DE MARCO MURRAY has 225 scrimmage yards (112.5 per game) & 2 rush TDs in 2 career postseason games. He's tied with five others for third all-time. And we should expect how this ends: more Patriots success. Only two players in National Football League history have more receiving touchdowns in the playoffs: Jerry Rice with 22 and John Stallworth with 12.

"That's great to hear and everything, but that's not really the main goal", he said.

The Patriots are just looking to earn their way back to the Super Bowl with minimum setbacks.

After a drama-filled week, the quarterback says his focus remains exclusively on football as his team prepares to host the Titans in Saturday's divisional round. Tennessee ended up making the postseason thanks to their midseason success, since the Titans lost 3 out of their final four games.

"We nearly pulled that out", George said. "We were giving up too much, especially on early downs". New England has a lot of weapons, but Tennessee has Marcus Mariota.

"(Brady) definitely outplayed us tonight".
