Eagles, Pats in Super duel

Eagles, Pats in Super duel

The New England Patriots stunned the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday by overcoming a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win 24-20 and advance to the Super Bowl.

Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots are going back to the Super Bowl, which is no surprise.

It would have been one thing if a 40-year-old Brady limped into a Super Bowl, being carried by a stout defense or something, not unlike former Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did back in Super Bowl 50. I mean, that ended up being a huge drive for us.

Brady hurt his right hand during practice earlier in the week.

But one of the other stories of the day was about how Jordan insisted that he and Brady had to be partners. "I'd be thrilled to be able to stay here and play here, and hopefully that can happen". But Brady, playing with tape underneath his right thumb and protecting his palm, joined the New England defense in calmly taking care of business in New England's seventh straight visit to the conference championship game - the 12th of Brady's career.

The other three MI football alums that will be playing in the big game this season are Alan Branch, who is making his third trip with New England, David Harris, who is making his first, also with the Pats and Brandon Grahahm, who will play for Philadelphia. Amendola, 32 and with a bad knee, probably couldn't beat Jack in a foot race, but he left Jack in the box with a dizzying route for his first score. Depending on who you listened to, he needed either four stitches or 10, he either screamed when it happened or didn't, and it might have bent his thumb back or not. "Everybody knows how tough he is".

Just three days before the game, Brady had a freak collision with teammate Rex Burkhead and gashed the inside of his thumb on his throwing hand.

A wide-open Marcedes Lewis gave the Jaguars a 7-3 lead 45 seconds into the second quarter with a 4-yard touchdown catch from Bortles.

Sure did. After the Vikings (14-4) took a 7-0 lead on the game's opening drive, it was all Philadelphia (15-3).

Bortles' play was ridiculed throughout Jacksonville's run, but the Central Florida product took the criticism in stride.

But the Patriots reset, and after an incompletion by Bortles on first down, linebackers Kyle Van Noy and James Harrison got to Bortles for a sack, prying the ball loose. The Jaguars were called for six penalties, amounting to 98 yards.

And their quarterback delivered - with some help from two big penalties.

While Bortles managed a single first down in the fourth quarter, Brady came through with a pair of TD throws to Amendola. Church was called for unnecessary roughness, putting the ball at the Jacksonville 45.

The Patriots will face the victor of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on February 4 in Minneapolis.

But Brady & Co. were just getting started. When it looked like, with 8 minutes and 45 seconds left, that they were hopelessly behind by 10 points, he did it again.

In 2008 when Brady tore his ACL, the Patriots didn't even make the playoffs.

While Amendola's catch was incredible, it apparently was part of the play's design.
