It was too much Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Titans opener, as the Patriots beat up Jake Locker and the Titans 34-13 at LP Field.
The Pats were able to put the game away by half, as they led 21-3 after Brady threw two scores, one each to his favorite TE’s, Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski.
Brady was solid, going for 236 yards on 23-for-31 passing with two touchdowns without an interception.
Locker left the game after getting hit in the fourth quarter, he ended the afternoon 23-for-32 for 229 yards with a touchdown and a pick.
Last years starter, Matt Hasselbeck threw for 43 yards in relief. Chris Johnson got off to another slow start, going for just four yards on 11 carries.
Steven Ridley went off for 125 yards on 21 carries for the Patriots, who outgained the Titans 390 to 284 in the win.
There’s a lot of film that the Titans will be able to see, and they will have a lot of work to do after this setback to the superior Pats.
