Tennessee Sends Patriots Out of Playoffs in First Round: Giving up 184 yards on the ground to NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry, the New England Patriots were upset by the Tennessee Titans 20-13 in their AFC wild card playoff game, throwing the media in full Tom Brady retrospective mode. Tom Brady, who will become a free agent for the first time in his career on March 18, said he's unlikely to retire. If he leaves, his last pass for the Pats was a pick-6.

I suspected that the Pats AFC East schedule had artificially inflated their record and defensive stats. I'm also thrilled to have them gone early; I, like so many, suffer from extreme Pats fatigue.

That said, if this is the end of the dynasty, what an incredible fucking run it was. In a league designed for parity, they have been at the top for a long-ass time.
