Rookie Christian Barmore was active, but didn't see the field much. He's been dealing with a knee injury this week that limited his practice time. In Barmore's stead, 2021 free agent signing Davon Godchaux got more reps at defensive tackle, and he took advantage, forcing a Tennessee fumble – one of the few big plays he's made this season.
This quote is absolutely perfect, Bill.
Mac Jones threw two touchdown passes, New England’s defense forced four turnovers and the Patriots earned their sixth straight win, rolling past the Tennessee Titans 36-13 on Sunday. The victory snapped New England’s two-game losing skid against the Titans. The Patriots hadn’t beaten Tennessee since former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel took over as coach in 2018.
