The Patriots dynasty may have just died at the hands of Mike Vrabel.

The Tennessee Titans beat the New England Patriots 20-13 in Foxboro, giving Vrabel his first-ever playoff win and eliminating Tom Brady (a noted Michigan grad), Bill Belichick and the Patriots in the wild card round.

Vrabel's defense held Brady and the Patriots to just 13 points on the night and put the game on ice with a pick-six with just nine seconds left on the clock.

The Titans win puts a potential Kerry Coombs return to Ohio State on hold at least another week, but gives Vrabel and Coombs a win over a couple of Michigan Men – Tom Brady and Chase Winovich.

And it taught Kyle Van Noy that a "Revenge Tour" is a bad idea when it involves Winovich.
