Best Of Social Media: Week 12 Titans vs PatriotsGeorge Walker IV / Tennessean.com / USA TODAY NETWORK

The New England Patriots returned home on Sunday to take on old friend Mike Vrabel and the AFC-leading Tennessee Titans at Gillette Stadium.

The Patriots entered the contest riding a five-game winning streak and looked to capitalize on the short-handed Titans who were without their top two receivers and All-Pro running back Derrick Henry.

Check out how the afternoon unfolded through all the best social media sights and sounds shared before, during, and after the game below.

In the first quarter, the Patriots began the game with yet another opening drive touchdown to take the early 7-0 lead while on defense Matthew Judon continued his dominant season.

A Kendrick Bourne four-yard touchdown pass from Mac Jones opened the scoring.

In the second quarter, the Titans answered back with a touchdown of their own but kicker Randy Bullock missed the extra point to preserve the Patriots lead.

 

On the ensuing drive, the Patriots added three points back courtesy of a Nick Folk 22 yard field goal following this dime pass from Mac Jones to Jakobi Meyers.

Leading by four with six minutes to go until halftime, it appeared the Patriots lead would be cut to one, but again Randy Bullock missed a field goal.

The Patriots tacked on two more field goals before halftime, one of which was courtesy of this Davon Godchaux forced fumble.

Leading by ten just before the half, the Patriots once comfortable lead vanished in a flash when Dontrell Hilliard ran for a 68 yard touchdown just before halftime to trim the Patriots lead to 16-13 as both teams went to the locker room.

THIRD QUARTER

Needing a response, the Patriots came out firing in the second half as a Nick Folk 28 field goal followed by a big turnover by the defense contributed to ten more points and a 26-13 lead

With one final quarter remaining, the Titans appeared to be on the doorstep of getting back into the game, but a clutch goal-line stand by the Patriots defense snuffed out the rally.

A Nick Folk field goal and Damien Harris touchdown later in the quarter iced the Patriots sixth win in a row heading into the biggest matchup of the season against the division rival Bills next Monday night in Buffalo.

FINAL 36-13 NE
