Joe D's NFL AFC Game of the Week

New England vs. Tennessee, 09/09/2012 13:00 EDT, Score: 34 - 13

Point Spread: -5/-110 New England

Sportsbook: Intertops

Result: Win

Today's winner is New England over Tennessee. This is my AFC Game of the Week.

New England has won 8 straight season openers and are touted not just to take the AFC East but are also slated at 4-1 (along with Green Bay) to win the Super bowl. The Titans are always overrated. They come in here with a 2nd year QB in Jake Locker at the helm, making his first career start. Locker will be without WR, Kenny Britt (suspended). A season ago, Tennessee was 31st in the NFL in rushing and bring back the inconsistent Chris Johnson. Tom Brady once again is surrounded by talent. It is the defense that needed improvement and HC, Bill Belichik did address that situation. Take the battle-tested Patriots against the over-valued Titans. Take New England. Thank you.
