Titans vs Patriots matchup preview
Both the Tennessee Titans and the New England Patriots are in first place in their division entering week 12, but they appear to be heading in two different directions.
The Titans had their six game winning streak snapped in week 11, losing to the lowly Houston Texans. While one loss should not be enough to hit the panic button, it’s part of a downward trend the Titans have had since losing star running back Derrick Henry. The Pro Bowl player is out for the year and since his departure the team has struggled offensively. They have not been able to run the ball with nearly the same kind of success and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, while putting up a good bit of yardage, is making mistakes as teams focus more on him (a 350-plus yard game against the Texans was offset by four interceptions).
As for the defense, all you can really say is that they are fine. They rank 14th overall. Not losing them games but also not doing anything particularly special.
It’s entirely different for the Patriots, who are riding their own five game winning streak. They are being led by rookie quarterback Mac Jones. His stats aren’t spectacular (2,540 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions), but he is doing exactly what Bill Belichick and the team need from him. Jones and the Pats offense isn’t going to wow you, but it will get the job done.
The Patriots strength, rather, lies in their defense. The unit currently is ranked as third best in the entire league, allowing just a little more than 300 yards per game. They also rank third in total turnovers created, with more interceptions than any other team in the league; cornerback J.C. Jackson leads the team with six interceptions.
A functioning offense and a stellar defense was the formula for many of the Super Bowl-winning teams that Belichick put together in the early 2000s when he had another young quarterback by the name of Tom Brady (though let's wait a bit longer before we start declaring a new Patriots dynasty).
The Patriots are 6.5 point favorites in this week’s game against the Titans.

How to watch Titans vs Patriots from anywhere in the world
If you have found yourself outside of an area showing the Titans vs Patriots game, be it in the U.S. or anywhere in the world, a virtual private network (VPN) can be the tool you need to watch the game live.
A virtual private network allows you to route all of your internet traffic through a specific set of servers in a specific country. The one caveat here is that you need to be able to trust your VPN provider, because all of your traffic — encrypted as well as unencrypted — is going to be going through that VPN. For that, we've long been fans of ExpressVPN.
