A statistical preview of Titans/Pats

WEEI.com statistical editor, and author of Nuggetpalooza, takes an in-depth look at the Patriots' match-up with the Titans, Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.

With the victory, the Yankees went up in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series against the Angels, 2-0.

 

The Angels appeared set to even the series in the 11th, when they plated the go-ahead run in the top of the inning on a Chone Figgins run-scoring single.
