The Nashville Tennessean reports the Titans are expected to use the franchise tag, and that the "most likely" candidate is free agent Jared Cook.

Per beat writer Jim Wyatt, the Titans "don't want to lose" Cook, but a long-term deal isn't expected "any time soon." The Titans could apply the tag as early as Monday, but will likely make one more run at nailing down a long-term pact. The deadline for the tag is March 4. CBS' Jason La Canfora reported in late January that Cook appeared to have "no future" in Tennessee, but Wyatt is the most reliable voice on Titans matters. We expect the perennially underutilized and underproductive Cook to get one more chance in Nashville.

Julian Edelman snagged eight-of-10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Edelman has been rolling since Rob Gronkowski went out with a season-ending back injury and that trend continued in Sunday’s AFC title game. He ate up 41 yards on a catch-and-run on the Patriots’ opening drive and never took his foot off the gas. Edelman scored his fifth career playoff touchdown on a 10-yard strike from Tom Brady late in the third quarter. He’s now the Patriots all-time leader in postseason receiving yards with 937 and also set an NFL record with Chris Hogan for the most receiving yards by two teammates in a postseason game. This marks Edelman’s third trip to the Super Bowl.

Chris Hogan corralled nine-of-12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

If they ever make a 30-for-30 about Hogan’s career, this game might be a good place to start. There was legitimate concern about how effective Hogan would be this week after sporting a noticeable limp in the locker room after Friday’s practice. Hogan erased any doubts about his health by having the game of his life, setting career-highs in yards, catches and touchdowns. He ran circles around the Steelers’ overmatched secondary while breaking Deion Branch’s team record for most receiving yards in a postseason game. Hogan was left wide open on his first touchdown of the night and later scored a 34-yarder on a perfectly executed flea-flicker by Tom Brady. Next up for Hogan and the Pats is a Super Bowl XLI matchup against the NFC Champion Falcons. That game will be held in Houston two weeks from today.

Tom Brady completed 32-of-42 passes for 384 yards and three touchdowns and rushed four times for a loss of one yard Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Coming off a sluggish game against Houston in the Divisional Round, Brady was near-perfect Sunday in a convincing win over the Steelers. New England came out gunning, peppering the Pittsburgh secondary with short passes. That opened up things downfield for Chris Hogan, who led the way with a career-high 180 yards on nine catches. Brady delivered a spot-on flea-flicker to Hogan, who took it 34 yards for the score. He also dished out a 10-yard touchdown strike to Julian Edelman late in the third quarter, which essentially put the game out of reach. Brady is throwing the deep ball as well as he ever has and simply doesn’t make mistakes when he has time to throw. A win over the Falcons in Super Bowl XLI would cement Brady’s status as the greatest quarterback of all-time.

Julio Jones caught 9-of-12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

Playing through what FOX's Jay Glazer described as three separate foot injuries, Jones dismantled the Packers' woeful secondary. The highlight was a 73-yard touchdown in the third quarter where Jones took ownership of Ladarius Gunter's soul. Jones is at far less than 100 percent health, but it hasn't been a problem on the field. With two weeks to heal up for Super Bowl LI, Jones is going to be a nightmare for either the Patriots or Steelers.

Aaron Rodgers completed 27-of-45 passes for 287 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Packers' 44-21 loss to the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game.

After it initially looked like Rodgers’ 2015 funk was carrying over to another campaign, the best overall player in the league was transcendent the final two-thirds of the season. Rodgers posted a 30:3 TD:INT total over his final 11 starts, and tore up the Giants and Cowboys in the postseason before the Packers ran into the Falcons’ buzzsaw. Rodgers totaled 40 passing scores during the regular season, good for the second 40-TD season of his career, and 12th in league history. Now 33, Rodgers picked up a few soft-tissue injuries, but appeared in all 16 games for the third-consecutive year. If the Pack could ever get Rodgers a consistent running game or defense, they will win another Super Bowl.
Jan 22 - 6:31 PM

Matt Ryan completed 27-of-38 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns in the Falcons' 44-21, NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

Ryan was scary good, surgically guiding the Falcons’ offense to score after score. He was doing so against a comically undermanned defense, but Ryan has been shredding all comers for all of 2016-17. He looked genuinely unstoppable this afternoon, spreading the ball around to every Falcons skill player and always locating the open man. He entered halftime with 271 yards. Ryan is the leader of a well-oiled machine, one that will have a great chance of bringing home the Falcons’ first Lombardi regardless of their Super Bowl LI opponent.

Patriots WR Michael Floyd is a healthy scratch for the AFC Championship Game.

Floyd was dreadful in last week's win over the Texans, and is paying the price with everything on the line for the Patriots this evening. Malcolm Mitchell is active, and should return to his pre-Floyd snaps/usage level.
Jan 22 - 5:14 PM

Ladarius Green (concussion) is inactive for the AFC Championship Game.

Green's concussion has lingered long enough that he should be considered no better than 50-50 for a potential Super Bowl appearance in two weeks. Also inactive for the Steelers are WR Demarcus Ayers, QB Zach Mettenberger, CB Al-Hajj Shabazz, LB L.J. Fort, DE Johnny Maxey and OT Brian Mihalik,
Jan 22 - 5:13 PM

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

With Michael Floyd a healthy scratch, Mitchell should see a ton of snaps against the Steelers. In addition to Floyd, inactive for the Patriots are QB Jacoby Brissett, RB D.J. Foster, OT LaAdrian Waddle, CB Cyrus Jones, CB Justin Coleman and S Jordan Richards.
Jan 22 - 5:12 PM

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports the Falcons will look at Chip Kelly to replace likely-departing OC Kyle Shanahan.

Shanahan is fully expected to become the 49ers' next head coach, leaving the Falcons with a vacancy at coordinator. Kelly was a serious candidate for the Jaguars' coordinator job and will reportedly meet with Bill Belichick about a position with the Patriots. Switching to Kelly's scheme would be a risk for the most potent attack in the league, but it is reasonable to believe Kelly will have much more success if he is allowed to just focus on the offensive side of the ball. Even so, the Falcons would be wise to look for some continuity with their next coordinator.
Jan 22 - 2:29 PM

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

Allison will suit up despite sitting out the entire week of practice. With both Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Davante Adams (ankle) also active, Allison's role is unclear, but it would not be surprising if either Nelson or Adams (or both) were not able to finish the game. Allison is as good a low-priced flier as any in DFS.
