Paul Posluszny, Telvin Smith, Aaron Colvin, Abry Jones and Peyton Thompson are the only remaining players from the defense to have played substantial snaps in that game. Can the upstart Jaguars pull off the shock?

That means Brady will not be 100 percent on Sunday. He officially was listed as questionable to play, but everyone thinks he will be out there.

The home team is the underdog in Sunday's second game. Brady threw for 337 yards, the most ever by a quarterback in their forties in a playoff game . NFL Network then reported that it was a running back who crashed into Brady during a handoff.

This is a game where field position, the kickers and who plays best in the red zone is going to win. It is still Rob Gronkowski.

Four will become two this Sunday as the AFC and NFC Championship games decide the opponents for Super Bowl LII.

The Jaguars are a different team when they are out in front. According to the same sources, The Boston Herald also noted that there was "no structural damage" to Brady's hand. That was a good sign for the Jaguars, but Bortles still has not delivered when the Jaguars were trailing in the fourth quarter of a game this year.

This season, Jacksonville won the AFC South with a 10-6 regular-season record. When asked if Brady would be a game-time decision, Belichick said, "It's Friday".

Blake Bortles fact: The Twitter account, @BortlesFacts, has more than 79,000 followers.

Yet the 25 year-old out of UCF is finding ways to get it done. Big Ben throws five touchdowns for the Steelers and loses?

If you thought I was speaking in hyperbole when I wrote my NFL Divisional Round Wrap Up Monday, dig this sweet science. It's absolutely mind-boggling that the Jaguars are in the Championship game but they relied most on their defense go get here.

The Jaguars defense matches up well against the Patriots offense. And they had no choice because they had to play backyard football. "And they use that to their strength".

New England, meanwhile, had the second-best scoring offence in the league (28.6 points) and gained the most yards (394.2) with Brady again leading a high-octane attack.

They reached the AFC playoffs but were written off as losers, but Jacksonville defeated Buffalo and then stunned Pittsburgh during the first two rounds of the postseason.

I stated in my wrap up that if New England doesn't hoist the Lombardi Trophy in a three weeks it should go down as one of the worst choke jobs in the history of sport.

"I'm not talking about that", Brady said, basically repeating his answer to the other question.

All they had to deal with was an ESPN story saying the Big Three was in trouble, implying that Brady was upset at Belichick for kicking his personal trainer off the sidelines and went behind Belichick's back to owner Robert Kraft to get backup Jimmy Garoppolo traded to San Francisco. "It will never change for me". That seems slightly low to me. Jacksonville's D/ST to score at any time is up at 9/2 on the Betfair Sportsbook.

On the side markets, two small plays. With their skills and Brady's thumb, that is a combination worth betting on.
