Best and Worst from Patriots’ AFC Championship victory

However, the conspiracy theorists that believe the National Football League is around to get the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl, those fine people will be thrilled.

“It’s a great honor to come out and be an honorary captain for the best organization in all of sports”, Bledsoe said. Brady is indestructible as well as the greatest quarterback of all time and even if he did get a boo-boo on his hand, there is no way in hell that you are going to keep this warrior off the field.

“Of all the plays, my season wasn’t going to end on a handoff in practice”, Brady said. The 32-yard penalty gave the Patriots the ball at the Jaguars 13. Brady wound up with 138 yards passing in the fourth quarter alone, a remarkable showing after he sustained a hand injury during this week’s practice.

BEST TIME TO DUST OFF PHILLIP DORSETT: The seldom-used wide receiver made the most of his first catch since the season finale, hauling in a 31-yard pass from Brady to set up Amendola’s 9-yard touchdown reception to slice the deficit to 20-17.

The only thing that went the Patriots’ way in the first half of Sunday’s AFC Championship game might have been the officiating. Jacksonville’s second scoring drive to go up 14-3 was a particularly taxing 10-play, 77-yard drive that consumed 6:07 of game clock.

Cooks said Bouye he’s gotten better since he faced him during joint practices this summer. And it’s working. They drive down the field again, and Fournette barrels over Patriots LB Kyle Van Noy for the second TD.

They were trailing 10, 20-10, early in the fourth quarter.

Brady refused to talk about the injury while wearing red gloves during a meeting with reporters on Friday.

From ESPN: “Brady has preferred not to wear gloves during games, but he also hasn’t had to deal with an injury like this”. In the nine losses Brady has suffered in the playoffs, the opposition has run the ball at least 26 times, and typically, its much more than that.

In his past six postseason games, Gronk has 512 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. The New England coach was handed another one Sunday, after his team defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, and just as in 2017, he didn’t seem all that excited to mark a win that wasn’t quite for all the marbles. No team had ever rallied from a double-digit, fourth quarter in the AFC title game.
