Have thoughts on how the Jaguars and Patriots are performing? He's still handling that duty for Jacksonville. I truly believe that laughter is the best medicine.

The big question out of New England is the health of quarterback Tom Brady. In fact, all they have is motivation.

Despite suffering through what seems to be a gruesome hand injury, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will start for the team in the AFC Championship Game Sunday afternoon.

"I think we've seen a number of games that have come down to one situation, one play, one or two individuals involved in a play in that particular situation", Belichick said.

And, yes, that is the Jags defense that ranked second in the NFL in points and yards allowed, takeaways and sacks. That's enough on its own to prove that New England is a force on the offensive side of the ball. "The one thing I've learned is that they can beat you in so many ways", says Marrone, whom Belichick reportedly recommended for the Jaguars job. Personnel wise, there are no holes on this team.

But there's another important element at play here. Bortles is 13-for-15 passing for 155 yards and two touchdowns; seldom-used back Corey Grant has three catches for 59 yards alone.

Defensively, New England has been an inconsistent blur. It was his most productive game in three months. Is this based solely on Jacksonville racking up all those points against leaky Pittsburgh? Ditto for the corner opposite Ramsey, A.J. Bouye, a Second Team All-Pro pick who led the team with six interceptions. A team that upset the Pittsburgh Steelers 45-42 last Sunday in front of a stunned crowd at Heinz Field will now try to do it again.

First, they have to deal with the Jaguars' ability to generate a pass rush without blitzing, and second, they must contain the running game led by Fournette.

Watch parties will be hosted all over town Sunday, with the one at Wicked Barley expected to be packed. The Jaguars have averaged the most rushing yards per game (141.4). A wounded digit is unquestionably less than ideal against such a defense. That leaves these teams trailing by a touchdown before they get off the team bus. At one point, Bortles had completed 18 of 22 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown. This news conference was a departure from what had become the norm this season.

22 - Takeaways by the Jaguars in nine road games this season, best in the NFL and best in club history.

"We were just, for the first time, installing our philosophies on how we want to practice, situational football".

It wasn't the go-ahead touchdown - that came later - but you could feel the tide turn.

The Jaguars have the defense to bug Brady like a gnat. "Forty yards. You happy about that sack, but there you go.' That's just his mentality".

This game is too close to call.

"It was a bad night", said Brady, and it's hard to see it as much more.

We're on the Minnesota! The cut did require more than 10 stitches and is on the inside part of his hand, near his thumb, a source told ESPN's Mike Reiss, and there was significant blood. The game will be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
