Jags @ Patriots AFC Title Game

New England opens a 9 point favorite. Who do you like and why? I think Patriots shut down Bortles .
31-14 Final

The underlying difference? Tom Coughlin.

Jags 31-26 Though not sure it matters but Patricia shutting them down would be cool.

Yeah Coughlin could be a big key. I just think NE is going to shred the jags defense. But defense does win championships. I'm not rooting for the jags or vikings to win a super bowl. Lions need more teams with misery with them lol.
I hate the Vikings more then any other team . Jags are a expansion team .. Embarrassing how the Panthers and jags have more playoff wins since the 90's then the Lions . Eagles have a ton of playoff wins but 2 super bowl losses. I'm hoping for a eagles verses patriots super bowl. We are going to hear all week how great the jags defense is but I just don't think the Patriots will lose next week or in the super bowl .. yeah I am using a lot of flawed logic and I really like no nonsense Tom Coughlin. He sure has Brady's number. But with Brady, Bortles, Foles, Keenum.. I know who I'm taking.

Too bad Wentz got hurt. NE-Philly would be a good contest.

It won't be about shutting down Bortles. The Patriots will use the same formula they did against the Titans. STOP THE RUN AND MAKE THE QB BEAT YA. They completely shut down Henry and they will do the same to Fournette. By doing that, Mariota was unsuccessful and so will Bortles.

I see the Patriots winning by 10 or more.

I don't think so either. The Jags "spectacular" defense has been suspect since week 16. The 49ers dropped 44 on them and the Steelers put up 42. NE will likely do the same.

Don't get me wrong. The Jags are for real but the Patriots will handle them....

I Scouted the Patriots Using Steve Belichick’s Scouting Manual. Here’s What I Learned.
