AFC championship: Patriots need fourth-quarter comeback to beat Jaguars

Well, that's because he is the make or break factor of this game.

Jacksonville drove for a 54-yard field goal on its opening drive of the second half, then the teams traded punts. Fournette did come through with 109 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries in the divisional round versus the Steelers.

If you base this game on pedigree, New England has a major advantage.

Bortles' spot when the Jaguars traveled to Houston in Week 1 appeared tenuous. The source described the Pats quarterback's hand as a bloody mess after it got caught inside the helmet of a teammate. What were the greatest AFC championship games ever played? On Sunday, the Jags are expected to stick with their game plan against the Patriots, but this time with more emphasis on Brady's injured hand.

PATRIOTS: QB Tom Brady (right hand), OL LaAdrian Waddle (knee), DL Alan Branch (knee), RB Rex Burkhead (knee) and RB Mike GIllislee (knee) are QUESTIONABLE.

On the flip side, Jacksonville has been dubbed by many the best defense in the NFL this year.

The Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2001, '03 and '04 but then experienced a decade-long drought before winning it all in 2014 and '16. But playing the Patriots on this stage is a whole different animal. They are first in the league in total yards per game (394.2). The 40-year-old has thrown 21 touchdown passes at home this season while tossing just two interceptions. Including playoffs, the Jaguars own a 0-7 lifetime road record in this series.

According to WBZ Radio's Michael Felger Brady needed four stitches to repair the bleeding wound.

Jalen Ramsey might be the NFL's best cornerback.

Hoyer, a former Patriot, was acquired in midseason when the Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers. The New England Patriots' legendary quarterback will start in the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Gillette Stadium. In addition, quarterback Blake Bortles was efficient on offense passing for 214 yards and a touchdown while Leonard Fournette led the way with 109 yards on the ground. He is the first NFL rookie to surpass 100 yards rushing with three scores in a postseason game. The Defense and their run game are their strong points and that exactly how they beat the Steelers. When pressured, we saw Keenum offer up a number of airballs in last week's win.

- Patriots star tight end Ben Coates was limited to one catch for five yards. "No, I never thought that back then".
