Jacksonville Jaguars fan closing in on cashing incredible Super Bowl bet

Jacksonville Jaguars fan closing in on cashing incredible Super Bowl bet

Get ready, Philly. The Vikings are sailing into town.

In a pep-rally setting, those comments were an extremely minor offense, and it's not like the Jaguars or Patriots have any plans to lose Sunday in the AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium. "It's going to be a good challenge". The Vikings trailed the Patriots at +210 odds, the Eagles stood at +625, while the Jaguars were at +650. The other has been ridiculed by opposing players and fans alike. "Nobody thinking we can do it".

I hope this guy hits the bet because that'd be wild.

The Pats' run of success began two years earlier than that, when they topped the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI - the Rams were a No. 1 seed that year, but New England was not. It's the classic story of the wily veteran looking for yet another record to break going against the fresh-faced underdogs.

While the Patriots have some questions to answer on defense, Jacksonville has gotten the job done on that side of the ball all year. Coming into this game, however, I don't know if the Patriots will have such an easy go of things.

It was more of the same against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

And, it has all come full circle for Tom Coughlin, who was Jacksonville's coach the previous time the franchise got this far in the postseason.

But the Steelers may have new company after this year's Super Bowl LII on Sunday, Feb. 4 - assuming the New England Patriots, who are heavily favored to win, bring the Vince Lombardi Trophy back home to Foxborough, Mass.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone tried to convey that message. Blake Bortles completed 14 of 26 passes for 214 yards and a score while T.J. Yeldon led the receivers with 3 catches for 57 yards and RB Leonard Fournette stole the show with 25 carries for 109 rushing yards and 3 scores. He knows what we're going up there to do.

Since 2001, the Patriots have reached the AFC title game 12 times - including this year - and won the contest seven times.

The reality is the Jags have an immensely talented defense that is remarkably stingy against the pass (#1 in the NFL) and also ranked second in the league (55) in quarterback sacks.

"Everyone's got to feel good physically and mentally and go out there and try to cut it loose one more time in a huge game".

The Patriots are used to reaping the rewards of intense practices, so they instantly respected the Jaguars' approach as it related to their long-term prospects. They trounced the Tennessee Titans, 35-14, in the AFC divisional round, even amid swirling reports on internal strife between Brady, Belichick and owner Robert Kraft. Brady said the team has been watching a lot of film in the past few days as part of their preparation. Instead of doing a quarterback sneak or making the Jags think twice about what they need to do, the Black and Gold tried running the ball with Bell. I know how hard it is to get to this game. "We just have to match their type of physicality, and also just their emotion and their readiness to get ready to play".

The Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles will square off for the NFC championship.

"Our team never wavered, defense did an wonderful job, special teams", Foles said.
