New England takes the field on Sunday looking to put an erratic preseason behind them in action against the Tennessee Titans, who won nine games in 2011 and could very well be even more successful in 2012.

The Titans managed to win three games against playoff teams last year – Baltimore, Denver, and Houston – and an upset over New England would significantly strengthen their chances of making a playoff run considering a relatively light schedule which includes games against Minnesota, Indianapolis (twice), Miami, and Jacksonville (twice.) Their team matches up surprisingly well with New England’s: their offense is loaded with dynamic players at skill positions, they have perhaps the best pair of offensive tackles in the league, and their secondary is well-equipped to deal with New England’s passing attack.

Read on in order to discover ten key storylines for New England’s season opener.
