It would be quite easy to hype the young stars on each team. Unless of course the marketers don't know football beyond the QB on each team. And maybe it's just me, but I've seen this potential from Keenum since he was a Ram. Wouldn't be hard to put together a film package that shows this is getting a consistent team around him.

They'll play up the underdog story from any of the three QBs not named Brady. Minnesota has the whole home field advantage thing, losing Adrian Peterson and their rookie RB, and the improbable way they won the last game, the Eagles have the fact that they lost their star QB and plucking Jay Ajayi from the heaps of the unwanted, the Jags with Bortles resurrected, Fournette and their defense. They'll find something to hype, though Brady, Belichek, their relationship and the love and hate the Pats get would be a much easier sell.

Good drive by Jax for the score. Ground game and screen passes made it look easy.

Impressive drive. Little bit at a time with some play action.

So how much of this Jags game plan was Tom Coughlin's work? Seems like he is one of the few guys who has the Patriots figured out.

I am a lifelong Pats fan and even I am kind of rooting for the Jags. Their come from behind against the Falcons last year is a perfectly good last chapter on the dynasty as far as I am concerned. As much as it would be nice to see Brady "go out" (effectively) with a win, watching them win is getting kind of boring. I love that none of the other teams left are marquis QB-led teams.

Jags OL is just obliterating the Pats. Power. Jags are quick - everything quick, no deep drop back and throw.

Very little. The Jags know what they have in Bortles. He's not coaching the line and Fournette. Everything short with some play action. The Pats are getting manhandled when they know what's coming.

I agree. I thought the PI was ticky-tacky too.

It might be weak-ass, but almost any helmet hits are called on over the middle passes. No problem with it. And it might have paid off if it knocks Gronk out. 4 point lead with the ball perhaps NE w/o Gronk. Hmmmm.....

Let's see what adjustments the evil genius make at half. He's about the best there is at that.

What the fuck was that, Jags? Did you forget what was working the last 3 quarters?

What is up with the ugly-ass 2-tone helmets that Jacksonville has?

Back to the bread and butter now. Use your OL. Absolute domination.

I don't see how you could overturn this either way it was called.
