NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – No one outside the Titans and their fans believed they would be matched up against the New England Patriots in the second round of the NFL playoffs.

Many analysts picked the Kansas City Chiefs to be the team playing the Patriots, but that’s not the case as the Titans take on the Patriots on Saturday.

Many fans made the trip to Kansas City, but the ones who didn’t, like Michael Schimmer said he watched the last game in a bar and the excitement has been building back in Nashville.

“Each game more fans are showing up to watch the Titans,” said Schimmer. “I got to the bar an hour early to make sure we got seats and there were a lot of people.”

This week nothing has changed as many analysts are once again not giving the Titans a chance, but if your quarterback can throw a touchdown to himself, the question is why can’t they beat Tom Brady and the Patriots?

Our boys in blue take on the New England Patriots this Saturday night at 7 p.m. They’re only two wins away from the big game.

News 2 will have team coverage all week from both Nashville and New England as Reporter Brent Remadna travels to Massachusetts on Thursday with Sports Director Cory Curtis travelling up this Saturday.

The first Titans Playoff Fever Pregame Special takes place this Thursday night from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The second will take place this Saturday just before the big game from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

And after the game Saturday night, News 2 will also air a Titans Live Postgame Special immediately after.

In anticipation of the game, News 2 will also be holding a “Blue Out” all day Friday. We’ll all be wearing blue to work and we encourage you to do so, too!
