Tennessee is coming to New England.

With the Jaguars' 10-3 win over the Bills on Sunday, this means as the No. 5 seed, the Titans will play the No. 1 seeded Patriots Saturday night at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 8:15 on CBS. Jacksonville will travel to Pittsburgh for the other AFC divisional round game.

The Titans came back from trailing 21-3 at halftime on Saturday to shock the Chiefs, 22-21 on the road.

In the regular season, Tennessee went 9-7 and was the first wild card team. It is a tough, physical team and is 7-4 in one-possession games.

A big focus for the Patriots will be stopping running back Derrick Henry, who ran for 156 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in Saturday's win. Quarterback Marcus Mariota also had a solid game, as he went 19-for-31 passing with 205 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He caught his own pass for a touchdown on a bizarre play in the second half.

Including the playoffs, the Patriots have won six straight games against the Titans.
