The Jacksonville Jaguars have never defeated the New England Patriots as long as Tom Brady has been under center for five Super Bowl championships, as USA Today reported. In fact, the Jags are the only AFC team still carrying a goose egg in the win column against Brady's Patriots, after eight regular season and postseason attempts. But a series of New England injuries appears to give the Jaguars their best chance yet to knock off New England in a game that will live stream from Florida on Sunday.
The Jaguars came close and almost earned the 24-year-old franchise its first trip to the Super Bowl, per SI.com, in last season's AFC Championship game. Quarterback Blake Bortles led the Jaguars to a 17-10 lead after three quarters, as Pro Football Reference recorded, and Jacksonville's defense held New England scoreless in the third.
But two Brady touchdown passes to wide receiver Danny Amendola, including one with 2:48 left in the game, lifted New England to a 24-20 comeback win — and the eighth Super Bowl berth since Coach Bill Belichick took over the team in 2000 — 10th overall, per PFR.
But Amendola departed in free agency, and wide receiver Julian Edelman remains suspended for failing a PED test, leaving Brady to rely on tight end Rob Gronkowski. "The Gronk" will be matched against Jags cornerback Jalen Ramsey who will be out to back up his boasts after declaring, "I don't think Gronk's good," in an offseason interview, per NBC Sports.
