AFC Title Game: Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots

Patriots running back Rex Burkhead

Sunday's game will be the third appearance by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game.

The Patriots say quarterback Tom Brady did not attend a news conference Wednesday because he was meeting with the team medical staff for a right hand injury.

It's almost eight times more likely that Super Bowl LII will end with the Patriots beating the Vikings than the Eagles beating the Jaguars, according to 5Dimes. However, my Super Bowl victor, New England, still is playing meaningful football.

That's because the team should have been focusing on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

And now, the Vikings, Eagles, Patriots and Jaguars are all one win away from the Super Bowl. When Belichick's team wins the turnover battle in the postseason, it's 16-0. However, the Jacksonville Jaguars were able to go into Pittsburgh and pull off a big upset.

I'm not guaranteeing the 9-point underdog Jaguars will prevail, but it's not the longest of longshots that they pull it off.

Regardless of what the spread gets set at, the Patriots and their backers don't seem to mind. Following that, in the final two minutes and thirty seconds when the Steelers were 7 points behind, they instead made a decision to kick an on-side kick and failed to recover it which then allowed Jacksonville to score a field goal. With the penalties working against them, the Titans struggled both offensively and defensively and in the end, the Patriots won the game.

With Bill Belichick at the helm and Tom Brady under center, the dynasty in Foxboro shows no signs of ending anytime soon, despite recent reports suggesting discord among the head coach, quarterback, and owner Robert Kraft.

Kamara got the ball 11 times on the ground and rushed for 43 yards but was even more vital in the passing game.

"The one thing about Blake that I know is that he doesn't change, you know what I'm saying, from that regard", Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said.

Should Brady try to avoid both the secondary and the pass-rush by feeding his running backs, he will find that Jacksonville's defensive line was dramatically revamped by a trade for Marcell Dareus leading up to Week 9.

One week after mustering up a measly 10 points at home against the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville went into Pittsburgh on Sunday and scored 45 points en route to a stunning 45-42 win. Not only are they coming off of an incredible last minute win to boost their spirits, but if they win the match against the Eagles, they will become the first team in history to play a Super Bowl in their hometown.

The New England Patriots are too good to lose this game.

The stage is set for an epic battle between one of the best offenses and defenses in the National Football League going head-to-head in the AFC Championship Game with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. The only way to beat the Patriots is to get pressure on Tom Brady, and the Jaguars have the defense to do it.
