Best and Worst from Patriots' AFC Championship victory

Best and Worst from Patriots' AFC Championship victory

Down 20-10, Brady and his offense went to work in the fourth quarter to win the game.

Bortles was 23 of 36 for 293 yards and a touchdown as the Jaguars lost for the first time without turning the ball over. The Jaguars were flagged five times for 62 yards in the half. Jacksonville's often-criticized quarterback completed 13 of his first 15 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown. Lee beat Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler for an 18-yard gain on third-and-3 from the 16 to jumpstart the drive. He managed to pull something out of nothing on a flea-flicker that was almost a bust to find Hurns and a few plays later looked more like Brady going through his reads to find Lee for a first down.

Brady, wearing a black bandage on his right hand after hurting it during practice earlier in the week, showed no signs of being hampered.

In speaking to the media Friday, Brady did little to ease fans' concerns about whether or not he'll take the field Sunday.

"We said whatever it takes", Brady told CBS Sports. He appeared at media sessions with a glove over his hand, and according to ESPN, Brady "probably" will wear a glove while facing the Jaguars.

The Patriots are 7.5-point favorites over the Jaguars. The rest of it was dominated by speculation about a certain 40-year-old quarterback's injured throwing hand. On the next play, Fournette scored on a four-yard touchdown.

Speaking of the Eagles: This outpost of the Recode Brooklyn Bureau is a Minnesota Vikings household. Ngakoue, in particular, is a force with his strip sacks. "Without them, we're not standing here getting ready to go to Minneapolis playing in the Super Bowl".

They will, however, be going up against one of the NFL's most high-powered passing offenses. Brady found 32-year-old receiver Danny Amendola for a nine-yard touchdown with 8:44 remaining in the game.

If you are already paying for TV - either via a traditional cable/satellite company or a new internet streaming service - you can probably stream the games.

And, with the game - and possibly the season - on the line, the Patriots star came up big again. That's the most defensive touchdowns in a season by one team since the 2012 Bears. It was working, too, as the Jaguars jumped out to a 14-3 lead. The Jaguars held a 20-10 lead in the fourth quarter as Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles played one of the best games of his career.
