Best Of Social Media: AFC Divisional Playoffs Titans vs PatriotsDavid Butler II - USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots entered the 2017 Divisional Playoffs as heavy favorites over the upstart Tennessee Titans, but were seeking to advance to their seventh consecutive AFC championship game.

In the first quarter, it was the Titans who drew first blood, as Marcus Mariota found an unlikely target for his first touchdown, rookie Corey Davis who got his first career NFL touchdown reception in the most important of games. An incredible one handed highlight grab to stun the Foxboro faithful early on.

Seeking a response after struggling to find a rhythm in the first quarter, the Patriots opened the second with a long drive that resulted in the game tying score on a quick catch and run by James White.

Two drives later, same guy, same result. The Patriots would jump ahead 14-7 for their first lead of the game, they would not relinquish it.

Chris Hogan, who battled injuries throughout 2017 that resulted in him missing seven of the final eight regular season games, only caught one pass in this game, but made it count. 21-7 Patriots heading into halftime.

In the second half, with running back depth thin due to the absence of Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee, Brandon Bolden saw surprise action against the Titans, and scored his first touchdown since 2015. 28-7 Patriots.

The Patriots opened up a 28-7 lead after three quarters and the rout was on.

Seeking to put the finishing touches on yet another divisional round victory, Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski, and of course, a Gronk spike ensued.

The Patriots defense played a big role in keeping the Titans offense out of the end zone, allowing just two touchdowns all game, the second coming in garbage time when Mariota found Corey Davis again to bring the final score to 35-14.
