Patriots QB Tom Brady has message for Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey Video

Patriots QB Tom Brady has message for Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey Video

The Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots meet Sunday in the NFL AFC Championship at Gillette Stadium.

The Jaguars are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 vs. AFC, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 playoff road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on fieldturf.

Five days after the Patriots pulled off the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history, someone chose to bet on the only thing more improbable than a team blowing a 25-point lead in the biggest game of the year: the Jaguars winning Super Bowl LII. Then again, if they are playing the Vikings in it as well, their home-field advantage may come into play.

One of the reasons the Patriots are so hard to contain is their versatile attack. Lately, they have tried a new strategy by receiving the ball first. The defense made the tackles and put pressure on the quarterback. He also has the ability to demoralize opponents because he can make the catch even when he is covered tightly. "We're trying to go out there and continue to do what we've done and try to go beat the best football team we've played".

The Jaguars have a sensational defense, ranking second this year to the Minnesota Vikings in yardage allowed. Meanwhile, both James White and Brandon Bolden each scored rushing touchdowns.

Jacksonville won't try to outsmart New England - it will simply rely on its talent to be faster and physical in all the matchups. He sees a talented team that's worthy of its spot in the title game, even if it's not the marquee rematch with Pittsburgh that many, including the Steelers themselves, were probably expecting. The Jags owned the No. 1 ranked pass defense, No. 2 scoring defense, No. 2 in yards given up per game, second in sacks, and fourth in third-down percentage in 2017.

However, the Jaguars can be exposed on the defensive side of the ball as was shown last Sunday when Ben Roethlisberger torched them for a Steelers franchise-record 469 yards and five touchdowns. Leonard Fournette bulled the ball into the end zone three times against Pittsburgh, and he won't back off here. The Jaguars and Patriots held a joint practice in August and played in the preseason, where Jacksonville emerged a 31-24 victor. However, when New Orleans rookie cornerback Marcus Williams failed to lay a hand on Diggs on his attempted tackle, the Minnesota wide receiver sped into the end zone for the game-winning score.

This year, Jacksonville went 10-6 in the regular season, won the AFC South and beat the Buffalo Bills 10-3 in the first round of the playoffs.

If Foles can respond with a similar game against Minnesota's top-ranked defense, this could be a tight game that comes down to the final possession.
