These three New England Patriots need to step up if they want to make it past the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

The New England Patriots are set to take on the Tennessee Titans in Divisional Round play. With the game fitting a David vs. Goliath narrative of sorts, the Patriots have many weapons at their disposal. It all starts with their quarterback, Tom Brady.

No stranger to playoff football, Brady is doing things at age 40 that no quarterback has done before. Yet, he is as determined as ever to win his sixth Super Bowl title, a feat that would put the Patriots on top of the football world once again.

The Titans however seem to be relishing the underdog role. Wednesday, Titans safety Kevin Byard told reporters that he wanted to make Brady “look like Blake Bortles.” With an offense capable of putting together a plethora of points in a hurry, Tennessee looks to shock the football world.

With that in mind, we take a look at three key players that need to perform well if the Patriots want to beat the Titans.
