Marcus Mariota strained his quad in first quarter

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to himself and threw a key block on the play that sealed their upset win over Kansas City in a wild card game Saturday.

Their greatest accomplishment in an era led by head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady is that they've made continued dominance seem routine.

Opening as the biggest favorites among in the Divisional Round, the Patriots are heavily favored (13.5 points) over the Titans heading into the matchup.

The New England Patriots are onto their seventh straight AFC Championship after defeating the Tennessee Titans 35-14 Saturday night. The Eagles have 3/2 odds to reach the Super Bowl and 6/1 odds to win it.

After leading the Titans on a 95-yard touchdown drive in the first quarter, Mariota did not look the same. Whether it's Deflategate, taping opposing teams' practices or anything else, fans who hate the Pats will seize on any way to throw shade at them or come up with theories about how the National Football League does things to benefit New England.

The Patriots had one last chance to score in the second quarter, after stopping the Titans on fourth-and-1 at midfield.

The Patriots have been dominant at home in the playoffs.

Just ask the Titans.

Ultimately, Lewis was ruled down by contact after a 31-yard gain.

It wasn't always apparent during the regular season.

The Patriots stretched the lead to 28-7 on a two-yard touchdown run by Brandon Bolden with 4:02 left in the clock. He managed to create two more iconic moments while he was at it.

It just wouldn't be a Patriots game without a little bit of "controversy". He will most likely draw lots of coverage from safety Patrick Chung, who has had success against tight ends this season.

Titans Coach Mike Mularkey said that Mariota was hampered when he tweaked a quadriceps muscle. Lewis gained 14 more yards through the air on the very next play, setting up James White for a 5-yard touchdown catch two plays later. A repeat performance, and an emphasis on screens and short passes, could place a heavy hammer in the Patriots' hand again during the conference championship regardless of the opponent. He passed Keith Jackson, and only Dallas Clark is ahead of him. Running back Derrick Henry punished Kansas City for 114 yards in the second half and ran for 156 yards in the game. Before the start of this postseason, the Titans had 18 players who had appeared in a playoff game.

The Patriots trailed 7-0 after one quarter but owned the final three quarters, scoring 35 consecutive points after going to a no-huddle offense to keep the Titans off-balance. We're going to need another one next week.
