Great start for New England
New England have kicked off their campaign by extending the NFL record for the longest run of wins on the opening day of football (9). Tom Brady finished the game 23 of 31 for 236 yards, which proved enough to pick up the 34-13 win.
Both defensive rookies had a huge impact on the game, especially on one drive from the Titans, which saw Chandler Jones strip sack Jake Locker and Dont'a Hightower picked up the ball to run the ball in for a 6yd touchdown. One moment in the game saw Tom Brady take a hit to the face from the Blind side and left him requiring attention on the sideline, but it wasn't enough to stop him from taking the reigns and leading New England to a good start to their season.
