It appears this is the TEAM TO BEAT–the New England patriots are headed to Super Bowl LII!
via:The NY TIMES:
The New England Patriots were down 20-10 early in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s A.F.C. Championship game. Little had worked for the Patriots all day, but like Tom Brady has so many times over the years, the 40-year-old quarterback kept his cool and led the Patriots to a 24-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. It would have been shocking for any other team and quarterback, but seemed par for the course in this case.
With the win, Brady will go to the Super Bowl for the eighth time in his 18-year career, and he will be in search of his sixth career championship. The Patriots will face the winner of Sunday night’s N.F.C. Championship game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New England Patriots.
For the Jaguars to get so close only to fall apart after a Cinderella-like season seemed especially cruel, with Blake Bortles outplaying Brady for much of the game only to have New England make some tremendous second-half adjustments that essentially eliminated Jacksonville’s offense from the game.
This has to be a CRUSHING defeat for the Jags…. Let see what HAPPENS with the Vikings and the Eagles….
