Fresh off of what could have been a season-saving

win over the Cowboys Youth Ben Jones Jersey , the Titans are rewarded with the New England Patriots. After a short down period to start the year, New England is rolling once again, looking like a top threat once again to threaten for a championship. Now 7-2, the Patriots have won their last six games. Up next for them is a trip to Nashville, where they will be met with several familiar faces. Former Patriot Mike Vrabel is now running the show for the Titans, while former Patriots executive Jon Robinson is the general manager. Former Patriots like Logan Ryan, Malcolm Butler, Josh Kline and Dion Lewis are now each key pieces for the Titans. This game isn’t short on storylines, but can the Titans actually hang with Tom Brady and company? It’s a matchup that features New England’s fourth ranked offense against Tennessee first ranked defense, in terms of overall scoring. Vegas has placed the Patriots as 6.5 point favorites against the Titans, honestly a little lower than I thought it would be. Tennessee hasn’t beaten New England since 2002. The two haven’t even played a truly competitive game since 2004. The obvious key here will be Tennessee’s offense. Can they continue to build on what we saw on Monday night in Dallas? Is Marcus Mariota finally fully healthy? If so, will we get the Mariota we saw in Dallas again? These are all legitimate questions that we don’t know the answer to. Quite frankly , this team has given us no reason from a consistency standpoint to believe that the Monday night performance will be the new normal. For now, it’s hard to pick against the Patriots in this spot. They’ve yet to score under 25 points in a game this season, so it’s unrealistic to think that the Titans’ defense will be able to shoulder the load on Sunday. Matt LaFleur’s offense is going to have to keep pace with Brady, which is usually a nearly impossible task — especially when you consider how inconsistent this group has been so far in 2018. While Travis Frederick has no idea when his football career will resume, the Dallas Cowboys center is just relieved that he found out what was wrong when he was diagnosed with a nerve disorder.The four-time Pro Bowler doesn't want to say that his presence on the active roster, rather than injured reserve, means he could come back sooner than the eight weeks required by an IR designation.Frederick is getting treated for Guillain-Barre syndrome, an auto-immune disease that attacks nerves and leads to weakness in various parts of the body."I wish I was lying to you by telling you that," Frederick said Thursday in his first meeting with reporters since the diagnosis. "I have some of the best doctors in the business working on this and they can't even begin to predict how this is going to work. It really is a week-by-week thing."Frederick's streak of starting all 83 games, including three playoff games, in his five seasons with the Cowboys will end Sunday. Dallas plays at Carolina.The 27-year-old reiterated that his chances of a quick recovery improved when the disease was caught early. Frederick was diagnosed about 2陆 weeks ago and immediately underwent treatment.The 2016 All-Pro said doctors believe he has a type of Guillain-Barre that allows for complete recovery and a slightly increased risk of getting the disease again.With doctors catching the condition early, Frederick said he is likely to avoid extreme symptoms such as temporary paralysis and difficulties with breathing and body control.Frederick said he experienced numbness in both feet and hands and in one of his arms. He still says he's dealing with numbness in both arms."I was very relieved to finally have an idea of what it was that was going on Tajae Sharpe Jersey , because I was having some weird symptoms," Frederick said. "I got treatment and things started to improve. That helped relieve some of that uneasiness there."It's hard looking forward not knowing what's coming as far as a recovery standpoint, when I can come back. But knowing that I will get back to 100 percent at some point is certainly relieving."Frederick said he has been cleared for some work in the weight room and has been "retraining the body to make sure I can do the movements that I previously have been able to do."He has also stayed around his teammates, traveling to the final preseason game in Houston and planning to do the same for the opener."His involvement with our team is a reflection on the kind of guy he is," coach Jason Garrett said. "He's part of the meetings. He's out there at the walkthroughs. He's doing everything he can to get himself back, but he's really contributing to our team as he's in that process."Frederick, who has a wife and two children, says he can handle many of the daily functions in life. Blocking 300-pound defensive linemen is another matter. And that's where his case differs from rehabbing a more traditional football injury."When you're injured, you try and get past it," he said. "This is something I can't just will my way through. It's a matter of the nerves not conducting properly and not working correctly. It's going to require some patience."Frederick first felt sensations that football players associate with neck injuries, or stingers, while the Cowboys were at training camp in California.A doctor in the Los Angeles area cleared him of neck issues Authentic Ryan Succop Jersey , and Frederick told reporters it looked like he would be OK. As the feelings persisted and his neck still checked out fine structurally, Frederick wondered what else could be wrong.Now that he has the answer, he waits. And six-year veteran Joe Looney will be the first person other than Frederick to start at center for the Cowboys since the 2012 finale."He's very upbeat and positive," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "You can tell he feels good about his road to recovery. In his role now, it's helping getting Joe ready and getting those O-linemen tuned in."NOTES: Backup G Parker Ehinger, recently acquired from Kansas City in a trade, injured a knee and couldn't finish practice Wednesday. The Cowboys worked out free agent Xavier Su'a-Filo, a former starter in Houston. ... CB Chidobe Awuzie was limited for the second straight day because of tightness in his back.
