Patriots' Tom Brady practices Thursday with gloves on both hands

Patriots' Tom Brady practices Thursday with gloves on both hands

With Bill Belichick also unavailable for questions until Friday morning, that sent the media scurrying to anyone who would talk for hints whether Brady will be able to play against Jacksonville on Sunday (3:05 p.m.; CBS), or if there is reason for real concern.

Another way the two teams are similar was who they needed to go through in the playoffs.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been an under the radar type of team.

Under the National Football League officiating program's evaluation system, officials must be rated in the top tier at their position to be eligible for the Super Bowl.

"There hasn't been any indication that the injury could jeopardize Brady's status for the AFC championship versus the Jacksonville Jaguars".

The New England Patriots posted an outstanding season at your best online sportsbook.

Brady's throwing hand would probably have to be amputated, or at least swollen up like a balloon, for him to miss Sunday's game. The Patriots were 13-3 straight up. As in ever! Since 2010, New England has lost nine home games, compiling an insane 55-9 home mark. The Pats and Titans went over the total. For comparison, the Patriots have been the odds-on favorite all season despite a defense that ranked 29th in yardage allowed. Both teams are testaments to team building, with balanced offenses and top five defenses. Multiple pages of superlatives could be written about the Patriots but there is no need. It's unlikely that Doug Marrone and his coaching staff have the tools to know how to pull off the epic upset.

The same can be said of the Vikings, who entered the season with Sam Bradford as their quarterback and had big playoff hopes. The Jaguars were 4-4 against the spread in away games.

"We're going to continue to get ready for Jacksonville all the way through until game time". Patriots lead series, 10-1.

Except for the New England game, the games last weekend were very intense!

The Jacksonville Jaguars were not given much of a chance to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.

The matchup here is the proven historic excellence of the Patriots against the upstart nature of the Jaguars. You have a team that no one took for real and they have proved doubters into believers.

When the Patriots announced that Brady would miss his scheduled press availability to spend time with team doctors on Wednesday, nobody seemed overly concerned.

"What this says to me is Tommy's injury is significant enough to aggravate if he practiced, so they held him out-which is an important day in the passing game", Stallworth wrote.
