Tom Brady was asked in his weekly Westwood One interview if he believes his play has slipped from last year. "Everything is different from one year to the next. I think you keep working at it in the same way, and those things haven't changed for me. I'm sure some of my statistics have changed, but I feel good out there. Do I want to play better? I absolutely want to play better. I want to play as best as I possibly can for my team. .... Certainly [Sunday] was not a great performance."

Patriots WR Julian Edelman's ankle injury is not considered serious and he's not expected miss much, if any, time, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Edelman will be monitored, but the outlook appears positive for now.

Patriots offensive snaps: Chris Hogan's 54 snaps as the No. 3 WR, coupled with his lack of targets(1)/catches (0), stands out. This was a 3-wide game with little distribution to targets other than Josh Gordon (12 targets/4 catches) and Julian Edelman (12 targets/9 catches).

Stephon Gilmore, who appeared to be battling a cold, acknowledged after Sunday's game that it wasn't his best. Of Titans receiver Corey Davis (7 catches, 125 yards, TD), he said, "He just had a better day today. ... I could have won that matchup a little bit more, but he made some plays. I have to give my hats off to them."

The Patriots trail the Titans 24-10 at halftime, and they deserve to be in the hole based on the way they played, with a lack of energy and execution early. The Patriots will likely need a pass-catcher other than Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman to step up in the second half, as the options outside of those two players have been quiet.

Patriots starting left tackle Trent Brown left the game late in the second quarter due to an illness. He was announced as questionable to return, and after halftime, he was back on the field for one series before departing again due to a back injury. Brown had missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday due to an illness. LaAdrian Waddle is the top backup.

Poor coverage on the opening kickoff return, struggles to get off blocks, being a step slow in coverage (Stephon Gilmore with early trouble) and a Josh Gordon third-down drop on a laser over the middle contributed to the Patriots falling behind 17-3 early. This is the fourth time this season the Patriots have trailed by at least 10 points in a game. The last time before today was Week 7 at the Bears (won 38-31).

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Patriots inactives: S Obi Melifonwu, CB Keion Crossen, RB Kenjon Barner, OT Matt Tobin, RG Shaq Mason, TE Rob Gronkowski, DE Derek Rivers. This means that RB Sony Michel returns for first time since injuring knee Oct. 21 in Chicago. Also, starting LT Trent Brown (illness), special teams captain Matthew Slater (illness) and TE Jacob Hollister (hamstring) — all of whom were questionable — are good to go today.

A big decision is brewing between the betting majority and Las Vegas sportsbooks in the Patriots-Titans game. Just over an hour before kickoff, the SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas emphasized the Titans as the book's biggest need, followed by the underdog Raiders. Caesars and Station Casinos also pointed to the Titans as among their biggest decisions of the day.

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer 

The Titans are 5-1 ATS with four outright wins as an underdog this season. Can they make it 6-1 as 6.5-point home 'dogs against New England?
