Patriots saw Jaguars' potential in training camp


Get ready, Philly. The Vikings are sailing into town.

The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Patriot's traditional rivals Pittsburgh 45-42 on Sunday to set up a meeting with New England in MA for the American Football Conference (AFC) championship next Sunday.

His return to the field will provide the Patriots could be crucial in helping alleviate some of the pressure that Brady will receive in the pocket from the top pass-rushing defense in the league in Jacksonville with some dump off throws in his direction. The victor heads to Minnesota for the Super Bowl to face either the Minnesota Vikings or Philadelphia Eagles. In my opinion the Patriots should win this one if they can play like they already have been. "Nobody thinking we can do it". I don't stop playing till the clock hit zero.

Auburn will be represented at Super Bowl LII no matter which teams win the NFL's conference championships on Sunday.

For fresh-faced Jacksonville, however, this is all rare territory.

Brady is coming off a 337 yard, three touchdown performance against the Titans in the divisional round, but the Jaguars' defense presents a much steeper task. Jacksonville is also one of four franchises to never play in the Super Bowl.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski is the best big-play maker at his position, and he makes a habit of catching hard passes in pressure situations. I have "sources" telling me Carson Wentz might have placed a curse on any team who plays Nick Foles at home to lose until he gets back.

The Patriots and Jaguars last played in 2015, with New England winning in blowout fashion at home, 51-17.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone tried to convey that message. But if the Jaguars can go on the road and knock off the defending champion Patriots, they will be one win away from doing just that. We just keep proving people wrong. "Everyone has different ways of handling things". Which is why the Patriots should be frightened this weekend: Their opponent in Sunday's AFC Championship game is basically the Giants, .

"It will be a great challenge for us, obviously, and we're going to have to have a great week".

"It was good because it really kind of gets you focused on where you need to be".

"They're well coached. I know that, for sure".

Brady, as usual, was complimentary of the team he is preparing to face.
