On to Week 12 of the 2021 NFL season, the Tennessee Titans (8-3) will travel to Foxborough to face the red-hot New England Patriots (7-4).
The two teams last met in the AFC Wild Card Game in January 2020, with the Titans topping the Patriots in upset fashion on the road, 20-13.
The Patriots no longer have Tom Brady under center, but rookie sensation Mac Jones is playing really well for them right now. On the season, the 23-year-old has completed 70.2 percent of his passes for 2,540 passing yards, 14 touchdowns to eight picks, and a 94.7 quarterback rating.
The Titans, of course, are coming off a disappointing loss at home to the previously one-win Houston Texans.
With one game left before a much-needed bye week, the Titans will have to stay focused for a big matchup against an AFC opponent that could ultimately have a say in the playoff seeding.
The Titans currently sit in the No. 1 seed in the conference, but a Patriots win would lead to New England jumping Tennessee. If the Baltimore Ravens win also, the Titans would fall to No. 3. A Ravens and Titans loss would put Tennessee at No. 2.
As such, here are six burning questions to keep tabs on leading up to and throughout the game on Sunday.
