Marcus Mariota Suffered Quad Injury in 1st Quarter of Loss to Patriots

Central (8:15 p.m. Eastern). The Vikings (13-3) have dominated against the Saints at home, going 13-3 including a victory in the 2000 divisional round.

LeGarrette Blount ran in from the 1 on fourth down to give the Eagles a 6-3 lead early in the second quarter.

The Patriots have been riled this week following a bombshell ESPN report which painted a picture of internal strife and a terminal rift between Brady, coach Bill Belichick and billionaire owner Robert Kraft.

Here are five takeaways from the New England Patriots' 35-14 win over the Tennessee Titans at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.

But Philadelphia fans were rejoicing at the end of the match, with their side winning 15-10.

This team was in disastrous shape just a couple of years ago, having won just five of their previous 32 games going into the 2016 season.

"Branch, 6'6" 325lbs, is a run-stuffer, and New England will benefit greatly from his return. "That first touchdown was an unbelievable catch".

Tom Brady has his second touchdown pass of the game, connecting with Chris Hogan from 4 yards to give the Patriots a 21-7 lead with under two minutes left in the first half.

- Fletcher Cox, Eagles, had seven tackles and a sack to help lead Philadelphia past Atlanta. A strong performance on Saturday, and there will be no question about who the Super Bowl favorites are.

New England's defense was able to generate that pressure thanks to great coverage down the field in the secondary. "Every game is going to be tough and going to be a four-quarter game".

The second came on a Patriots punt when it appeared New England would be called for a false start. Still, if there is one thing the Patriots have done better than most under Belichick, it is quieting the noise. He was sacked eight times for total losses of 52 yards, with rookie Deatrich Wise Jr. leading the way with two.

Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes in New England's 35-14 win over Tennessee, giving him 10 such games in his career - breaking a tie with Joe Montana for the most since the 1970 merger.

As good as it must have felt to continue an undefeated career as a starting quarterback (Garoppolo went 2-0 as the Patriots' starter in 2016 when Brady was sitting out on a four-game suspension), this bonus will be a sweet surprise to start the 26-year-old's 2018. Only Jerry Rice (22) and John Stallworth (12) have more.

It is playoff time! He went on to start the final five games for San Francisco and went a ideal 5-0.

It wasn't always apparent during the regular season.

Stat of the week: This marks the eighth straight year that the Patriots will host a divisional-round playoff game, adding to their own record. Cornerback Jonathan Jones was helped off the field late in the fourth quarter. Titans tight end Jonnu Smith was carted off in the third quarter with a right leg injury. "When we got together and discussed it and pieced together that the defensive lineman across from the guard jumped in the neutral zone and caused the false start, that's when we changed the ruling from a false start to a neutral zone infraction".

The Philadelphia Eagles hadn't made the NFL playoffs since 2013 before claiming the No.1 seed in the National Football Conference (NFC) this season.
