NFL wrap: Titans scalp Patriots while Brees moves to No2 on all-time TD list
- Marcus Mariota leads Tennessee past battered New England
- Todd Bowles job in question after heavy New York Jets loss
- Drew Brees throws 509th touchdown pass of career
The Tennessee Titans sacked Tom Brady three times and hit him repeatedly as they beat New England 34-10 on Sunday, snapping a seven-game skid against the Patriots in Mike Vrabel’s first game as head coach against the team he helped win three Super Bowls.
It was the most sacks allowed in a game this season by the Patriots (7-3), and coach Bill Belichick pulled Brady for Brian Hoyer midway through the fourth quarter. Only Brett Favre (326) has played in more games, both regular season and postseason, as a quarterback than Brady, who suited up for the 300th time for the Pats on Sunday. He left the game having thrown for 254 yards and no TD passes.
