Titans motivated by Tom Brady’s, Kyle Van Noy’s bulletin board material

Logan Ryan

The Tennessee Titans were motivated by some bulletin-board material provided to them by the New England Patriots leading up to Saturday night’s Wild Card Game.

Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy said ahead of the game that losing to the Dolphins in Week 17 set up the Patriots for a “revenge tour.” He was alluding to the Patriots’ losses to Tennessee last season and to Kansas City this season — both of whom would be their playoff opponents.

Former Patriot Logan Ryan was pleased to end Van Noy’s “revenge tour.”

The Titans were also motivated by a video tweeted by Tom Brady prior to Saturday’s game. Brady’s video portrayed the QB as a lion and the Titans as jackals and hyenas.

The Titans mentioned “hyenas” multiple times after the game.

The Patriots were trying to pump themselves up with the comments/video, but the opposite happened. If they have to face a little embarrassment as a result, that’s part of the consequences. Even Bill Belichick had to deal with some embarrassment after the loss.
