Jaguars collapse seals Patriots' 10th trip to Super Bowl

Less than a year after rallying from a record 25-point deficit to win the Super Bowl, the Patriots became the first team ever to overcome a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter of the AFC championship game.

Now, the Eagles, who crushed the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field, will try to keep history from repeating at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. Brady found 32-year-old receiver Danny Amendola for a nine-yard touchdown with 8:44 remaining in the game.

With Gronkowski sidelined, wide receiver Brandin Cooks was vast, catching six passes for 100 yards and drawing a pair of critical pass interference penalties.

Tom Brady suffered a right hand injury during practice this week, although up until Sunday details about Brady's injury were scarce. "These are pretty fantastic times for all of us".

Entering the game as a 9?-point underdog, the Jaguars opened a 20-10 lead early in the fourth quarter against the defending Super Bowl champions. He wasn't wearing a glove on his right hand, just some black taping around his wrist and thumb area.

"It's pretty fantastic. Just to be on a team that wins these kinds of games, it's just a great accomplishment", Brady said.

"I know this is what all you guys predicted back in the day was a Foles versus Keenum NFC Championship, so good job to all you guys that predicted that", Keenum said Wednesday. It was a insane injury. On Thursday the QB missed practice altogether only to come back and be a limited participant on Friday. I'm always looking for him at some point.

On Sunday, Golden State was playing its third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set. Stephen Curry had 23 points for Golden State, which hasn't lost outside Oakland since November 22.

Honestly, it didn't seem to affect him much. In the receiving end, Rob Gronkowski posted 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in 106 69 receptions while Brandin Cooks added 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns. "Defense played so great when they needed to". And the Jaguars played an incredible game.

Brady completed 26 of 38 passes for 290 yards with two touchdowns.

Of course, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the most obvious momentum changer of the second half.

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.

After the Pats' three-and-out, the Jaguars offense continued to apply pressure.

The Jaguars' defense came up big on the next play, as linebacker Myles Jack produced a forced fumble on a 20-yard reception by Lewis. They went 85 yards in just six plays, quickly slicing Jacksonville's hard-earned lead to 14-10 only 55 seconds before halftime. The defense held the Patriots to a three-and-out. Brady also had to battle a significant cut on his throwing hand.

If there's one hand in Boston that didn't need four stitches this week, it was the quarterback of the Patriots. A sound case can be made for a Jacksonville squad that allowed the fewest passing yards in the National Football League this season while finishing second in both yards and points allowed. Patriots' 14 appearance rank behind only Pittsburgh (16) and San Francisco (15) for conference title contests. Bortles breezed down the field with minimal resistance again, and Lambo's 43-yard boot made it 20-10 on the second play of the fourth quarter.
