LEADING THE WAY Coach Bill Belichick meets the media yesterday at Gillette Stadium where the Patriots will face the Jaguars in tomorrow’s AFC Championship Game. The team also announced yesterday that retired quarterback Drew Bledsoe will serve

Instead of seeing their dynasty die at the hands of a dominant Jacksonville Jaguars defense, the Patriots summoned up trick plays and toe-tapping touchdown catches to vanquish the upstarts. In Minneapolis on February 4, they will meet the Patriots, who earlier on Sunday beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship Game. He ran down the sideline wearing a white glove on his left hand and with black tape covering part of his right one.

"I've had a lot worse", Brady said. "We got Tom Bradyed again".

The Patriots will play the victor of Sunday night's NFC championship game at Super Bowl LII at 5:30 p.m. CST Feb. 4 in Minneapolis.

The New England Patriots made the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history a year ago, overcoming a 25-point deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in the National Football League championship game. "And that's why they're moving on".

The second-worst penalty on the drive (foreshadowing) set them behind the sticks, but the Jaguars faced a 3rd-and-7 from the New England 44, and they appeared to get it when Bortles hit Marcedes Lewis in the flat after he beat Patrick Chung in coverage.

The Jags invited Brady onto the field first, daring him to score against its top-ranked defense. "They're going to find a way to put pressure on you". The 32-yard penalty gave the Patriots the ball at the Jaguars 13.

The Patriots started one drive on their own 46-yard line after a punt, but went three-and-out. Eventually, Brady, and especially Danny Amendola-who else?-would make them pay.

Brady threw two fourth quarter touchdown passes to help his team overcome a 20-10 fourth quarter deficit. They proved they're going to be every bit the Super Bowl contender in the AFC over the next several years that the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers have been for the past 20. "I could never have imagined getting the kind of team achievements we've done, we have".

"It's pretty fantastic. Just to be on a team that wins these kinds of games, it's just a great accomplishment", Brady said.

The Jaguars sacked him twice and allowed just two first downs on New England's next three series while Jacksonville built a 14-3 lead behind a white-hot Blake Bortles and the power running of rookie Leonard Fournette. They had a chance to pad their lead, but three penalties, including one that was declined, forced the Jaguars to punt with a little more than two minutes left in the first half. I've got so must respect for him.

As announced on Saturday, Tom Brady starts for the Patriots, who have no real surprises on their team's inactive players list.

Well, Vice had a lot to say about the AFC Championship game.

"It's been an awesome season". "It's tough to try to enjoy it right now, but I'm sure that at some point we'll be able to reflect and think about all the good things that happened".
