America might be yawning at another Patriots AFC title

The Jaguars were also second in sacks and total takeaways, while they topped the National Football League with seven defensive TDs.

But the Jaguars do present vast trouble on one side of the ball.

The Patriots will want to play to their strength though and will do their best to squeeze on the short-to-intermediate routes and make Bortles beat them deep to soften up the coverage.

Their offense, naturally, could induce overconfidence from the No. 1 seed.

All they had to deal with was an ESPN story saying the Big Three was in trouble, implying that Brady was upset at Belichick for kicking his personal trainer off the sidelines and went behind Belichick's back to owner Robert Kraft to get backup Jimmy Garoppolo traded to San Francisco. The three remaining teams in the playoffs this season are loaded with talent and none have ever won a Super Bowl. However, the Jaguars have been much better in stopping the run since they acquired tackle Marcell Dareus at midseason. It is what happens Sunday, not what happened last year, two years ago, five years ago, 15 years ago, 1996 or whatever it is.

Shaq Mason has improved since Wolfe and Jackson's supporting-actor dominance, and second-year man Joe Thuney has been a quick study at left guard. Center David Andrews graded as PFF's No. 6 center this season. Everywhere, pundits hoping for a Patriot loss have chimed in.

Take a look at the regular-season rankings in various defensive categories, and you can't miss the Jaguars.

U.S. security focus no longer terrorism - Defense Secretary
While the military's defense strategy is hawkish, experts said that may not cause a negative impact on U.S. And he warns that all aspects of the military's competitive warfighting edge have eroded.

Furthermore, Belichick's 277 career wins (including playoffs) rank third in National Football League history, behind Shula (347) and George Halas (324), and his.684 winning percentage is tops (among coaches with at least 160 wins), ahead of Halas (.682), Shula (.666) and Curly Lambeau (.630).

Could Patriots' edge rushers actually have the advantage? Just six of his 30 attempts went 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, with a bulk of the damage in the passing game coming from yards after catch on quick hits. The Jaguars have not faced the Patriots since the preseason, even then, the starters didn't play in the preseason opener for New England. Head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady will be in their 12th conference title game together.

Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said their respect for Brady is high. Flowers and Co. sacked Marcus Mariota eight times last week. "He paid really close attention to all the lessons I taught him when he was there".

Keeping him from getting there is where the gnat comes in. But they're not exactly an imposing pair. But their defense surrendered the fourth-most yards.

Was this a mole within the New England locker room?

The Jags do not have an obvious Gronk deterrent. Fournette, who topped 1,000 yards this season despite missing three games, rushed for 109 yards and three touchdowns against the Steelers, and his success on the ground creates favorable situations for quarterback Blake Bortles, whose passer rating spikes almost 30 percent when throwing off play action.

"Tom always looks good", linebacker Kyle Van Noy said. Over the course of the season, that would have ranked the Eagles' defense dead last in the NFL. With White catching four balls, Pat backs reeled in 13 passes in Round 2. The Eagles spread the ball around, so Jeffery had only 789 yards receiving, but his nine TDs were the second most in his career.
