It’s playoff Sunday, and the last weekend of football before the Super Bowl on February 4th. The first game of the day is the AFC Championship between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots. The Patriots try to get back to the big game for the second year in a row, and look to win their 6th Lombardi Trophy with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
The Jaguars have been terrible for a long time, but it all came together for them this year. Their defense has been dominant, and looks to stop Brady and Rob Gronkowski today. The Patriots are heavy favorites, but the Jags were even bigger underdogs last week when they defeated the Steelers. Tom Brady has a questionable hand injury coming into this game, but is not expected to be limited unless Jacksonville can get consistent pressure up the middle.
