Brady (hand) will start versus Jags

As part of a 30-9 victory over the Steelers, the Jaguars' defense intercepted quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a career-high five times, including two that were returned for touchdowns. "They can just use that money toward paying for tickets to the game". That's hard to do for any team. His coach and football mastermind, Bill Belichick, is 65.

The fact it is the AFC Championship Game and we are talking about Jacksonville deserves to be noted. It was a head scratcher. Since taking over as general manager a little more than six years ago, he has built arguably the NFL's most-talented defense, primarily through the draft. That was the difference in the game.

"We have definitely grown a lot over the last few years", said defensive end Brian Robison, at 11 seasons the longest tenured player on the team.

Assuming all three stay on next year, it's likely they'll have a very different sideline. If it can disrupt him in the pocket, this game will be interesting. The other corner, Jalen Ramsey, is most likely going to cover Rob Gronkowski. He's big and physical. He's a physical cover guy. Can they put pressure in the pocket? I suspect that it could be a minor factor in the game, but it won't be a major deterrent. From back-to-front, they have every base covered.

We learned... Don't bet against the Patriots. But those backs make a big impact in the passing game. Myles Jack defended Le'Veon Bell well last week, but the Jags still allowed the Pittsburgh dynamo to catch nine (technically 10, counting his lateral-play TD) passes for 88 yards. Now that Julian Edelman is hurt, Amendola has taken over that security blanket role for Brady, and his role always improves in the playoffs. "And when he saw the way the Vikings won the game the way they did, he had to do it". According to the NFL Network, Brady jammed his right throwing hand after accidentally being run into by a teammate. Keenum replaced an injured Sam Bradford, who had replaced an injured Teddy Bridgewater, all three of whom have expiring contracts after the Super Bowl. If it were that serious, you likely wouldn't be hearing about it. It took a $50,000 wager on New England at 3-1 on September 21. Brady was hit 17 times and sacked four more against Denver. Experience counts. So does the home field.

The Jaguars showed some nerves early in the wild card round playoff game against the Bills, then settled in.

Yet, here they are, 60 minutes from Minneapolis and Super Bowl 52.

Tom Brady Questionable vs. Jaguars; Limited in Practice with Hand Injury
It would be shocking if Brady does not try to play on Sunday, but the bigger question is what level Brady will be able to play. When the Jaguars run: Jacksonville racked up the most rushing yards in the National Football League during the regular season.

When the Georgia Bulldogs advanced to the title game in Atlanta against Alabama, "we saw Georgia-area fans flood the market, because it was essentially a local game", he said. I had two picks in that game. How do we study the film, find out how to execute offensively, defensively, special teams? If he can do that, the Eagles have a chance to win. Brady is a four-time Super Bowl MVP, and the Jaguars have the NFL's best pass defense. To be specific, we saw one ghost, and his name is Tom Coughlin.

The largest futures liability CG took on the Minnesota Vikings was an $8,000 bet at 10-1 odds. Now, we were on to Jacksonville. Like Griffen, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was also selected as a 2017 Second-team All-Pro for the Eagles and is arguably the team's best player.

This is a game where field position, the kickers and who plays best in the red zone is going to win.

It will be cold in Philadelphia.

No shortage of attention here after both of these teams went down to the wire to advance.

The Vikings' defense has gone from worst to first since Mike Zimmer was hired as head coach prior to the 2014 season. Atlanta drove down the field, scored, and sent the game to overtime when Vikings coach Dennis Green made a decision to run out the clock at the end of regulation. I think it's their turn again to go back.
