Week 15 Live Blog: Patriots vs. Titans

The Patriots look to keep their hold on the top seed in the AFC as the Tennessee Titans come to town. With the Patriots injuries, nothing is a guarantee, no matter how bad the Titans have been in 2015. Stay with us as we provide live updates from today's game.

12:55- Welcome to Gillette Stadium as the Patriots get set to take on the Titans. Let's take a look at the inactives for today's game:

Patriots Inactives- S Deven McCourty, OL LeAdrian Weddle, TE Scott Chandler, C Bryan Stork, WR Julian Edelman, Jonathan Freeney, OL Ishmaaily Kitchen

Titans Inactives- WR Kendall Wright, WR Damaris Johnson, S Da'Norris Searcy, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, T Jamon Meredith, DL Ropati Pitoitua, DT Mike Martin

1:04- The Titans got the ball to start the game, but couldn't convert on a third-and-short so the Patriots offense will take over at the 21 yard line. Danny Amendola is returning punts; Patriots fans had their prayers answered.

1:13- Touchdown, Patriots!! Tom Brady, Brandon Bolden, Brandon Lafell and Rob Gronkowski highlight the 11 play, 79 yard drive as the offense looks the best it's looked since Gronkowski hurt his knee. Patriots 7, Titans 0

1:24- The Titans picked up some yardage from a Dorian Green-Beckham 19-yard catch, but they couldn't move any more as the Patriots defense stepped up and forced them off the field. This could be a long day for the Titans offense. Patriots 7, Titans 0

1:30- The Patriots offense goes back to their bad ways of the last month and are forced off the field after five plays and two yards. Stork being out today definitely hurts, but Andrews started six games when Stork was on the PUP, so he should be ready for the Titans. Mariota and the Titans take over at their own 25. Patriots 7, Titans 0

1:40- Touchdown, Patriots!! Chandler Jones strips Mariota and and Akiem Hicks takes it in for the defensive touchdown. This game could get ugly very quickly, especially if the Patriots defense turns up the pressure. Patriots 14, Titans 0

1:48- Another fumble on punt return for the Patriots, this time Danny Amendola with the braincramp. The Titans can't do much with it though as they are held to a field though, and the Patriots special teams gets picked up by the defense yet again. The fumbles need to stop immediately. Patriots 14, Titans 3

1:55- Touchdown, Patriots!! After a great kickoff return by Keshawn Martin, Tom Brady hit James White on a screen pass and White did the rest, taking it 30 yards for the touchdown. White is starting to look very comfortable, and although he doesn't have the same quickness and shiftiness as Dion Lewis, he does know how to use his blockers and is explosive in the passing game. Patriots 21, Titans 3

2:04- Another stop on fourth-and-one for the Patriots and the offense will have a chance to start the rout. Marcus Mariota was out on that series due to a knee injury, so Zach Mettenberger will be in the game at least for now. The Titans won't gamble with their prized rookie; if the Patriots score on this drive, we won't see him again today. Patriots 21, Titans 3

2:18- Stephen Gostkowski connects from 43 yards out to extend the Patriots lead to three touchdowns. Mariota is done for the day; smart move by the Titans. James White and Joey Iosefa highlighted the drive for New England. Patriots 24, Titans 3

2:24- The Patriots defense stops the Titans on three plays and Danny Amendola picks up a good chunk of yards on the punt return to setup the offense at their own 48 yard line. Amendola appeared to injure his knee on the play. Patriots 24, Titans 3

2:28- Stephen Gostkowski misses from 48 yards; the Titans took a knee and we head to halftime with the Patriots up by 21. New England will receive to open the second half. Patriots 24, Titans 3


2:46- Three-and-out for the Patriots offense and Harry Douglas returns it for 18 yards to setup the Titans at their own 41. Tennessee needs to score here to try and get back into the game. Patriots 24, Titans 3

2:52- Touchdown, Titans. Delanie Walker makes the catch and takes it in for the Titans first touchdown of the afternoon. That drive was exactly what the Titans needed and if they can continue to give the Patriots passing game fits, they may be able to make a game out of this. Patriots 24, Titans 10

3:05- Foolish play call on third-and-two and Gostkowski is forced to come on and kick a 38 yard field goal to put the Patriots back up by three scores. Tennessee went down the field with ease on their last possession, so this next series could go a long way towards deciding if this becomes a close game or not. Patriots 27, Titans 10

3:41- Sorry for the lack of updates, things got a little busy over here. Delanie Walker with a long touchdown, but the extra point was missed and the Patriots are still up by 11. New England was called for a terrible offensive pass interference that would have made this game a blowout, but now we have a game. Patriots 27, Titans 16

3:55- 42-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski puts New England back ahead by two touchdowns with 3:30 to go in the game. Brady made a clutch throw to Brnadon LaFell to convert on third down and put New England in position to kick the field goal and push the lead back up to 14. Patriots 30, Titans 16

4:03- Interception, Patriots!! Jamies Collins with the game sealing interception and return to setup the Patriots offense at the Titans 13 yard line. Tennessee only has one timeout remaining and with two minutes to go, their simply isn't enough time for the Titans to come back. Patriots 30, Titans 16

4:06- Stephen Gostkowski with his fourth field goal of the day to extend the lead to 17 wiyh 1:06 to play. Patriots 33, Titans 16

4:08- That'll do it here from Foxboro as the Patriots defeat the Titans, 33-16. New England improves their record to 12-2 and remain on top of the AFC while the Titans drop to 3-10. Thanks for being with us and be sure to join us next week as the Patriots head to New Jersey to take on the Jets.
