Tom Brady may have suffered open finger dislocation at practice

The Jaguars are the last team the Patriots wanted to play

The Jaguars are the last team the Patriots wanted to play

Nevertheless, we've been treated to an entertaining postseason to this point. "They've really done a good job, so yeah, it's impressive". Some of those confident prognosticators (Plaxico Burress, Shannon Sharpe and of course Joe Namath) were redeemed in the end, while others (Alshon Jeffery, Rex Ryan) were not. The winners of those two matchup will face off in the Super Bowl on February 4.

If we're going by the power of high-level draft analysis alone, former first-rounder Blake Bortles is the best bet among the quarterbacks who have reached the NFL's final four. The Titans were in the game because they upset the Kansas City Chiefs.

Head coach Mike Tomlin was in an interview with Tony Dungy where he spoke about an upcoming match up against the New England Patriots almost 3 weeks before the game and said "there will be fireworks". But now he s got the Patriots. Pregame coverage begins at 11:30 a.m. with a special 90-minute edition of Patriots GameDay, kickoff is set for 3:05 p.m., and after the game tune in to myTV38 for all the reaction and analysis on Patriots 5th Quarter.

Can any of the other three quarterbacks keep Brady from his sixth Super Bowl ring?

After so many heartbreaking moments in the playoffs, the Vikings finally received a bit of good fortune with Case Keenum's pass to Stefon Diggs.

The New England Patriots lost two out of their first four games in the regular season, and questions started on them.

This marks the seventh straight season New England will play for a chance to go to the Super Bowl, which it has won five times since 2001 - the year most Patriots fans seem to think the franchise was founded in. Such a scenario could swing the odds in Minnesota's favor. And that combination of the Titans and Jaguars is the easiest path to the Super Bowl in modern National Football League history, according to FiveThirtyEight.

The 2004 Philadelphia Eagles previously had the easiest route by facing the Minnesota Viking and Atlanta Falcons that season. But this Vikings defense would have been a hard task for the Eagles even if Carson Wentz was healthy enough to play.

- Jacksonville has scored eight defensive touchdowns this season (including playoffs), the most in the NFL. The Eagles also have a strong defense that they can lean on to help out Foles and the offense. We need to get past them. All-Pro linebacker Telvin Smith had a 50-yard scoop-and-score fumble recovery in last weekend's win in Pittsburgh.

Belichick's players often say that the coaches tell them experience means nothing. If nothing else, they are a team that believes in itself. Something else to consider is how much longer Dante Scarnecchia, the teams offensive line coach (he IS a wizard), will stick around. With a variety of weapons at the running back position, this is one of Bill Belichick's most balanced attacks in recent years.
