Patriots players respond to Jalen Ramsey…with praise

Great wide receiver, now maybe the NFL's best (Antonio Brown). Communication has been an issue on defense and dropping in more young players to the mix won't improve that. Pittsburgh (13-4) lost at home in the divisional round for the second time in 11 tries, unable to overcome a sluggish start that allowed the Jaguars to take a 21-point lead. Yet despite the belief of most of the 64,524 in attendance and likely a large chunk of the national television audience, they didn't.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are heading to the AFC Championship Game for just the third time in the franchise's history following a 45-42 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

The victor earns a trip to New England to face the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots in next week's AFC title game. Yes, they did come out throwing the ball unexpectedly.

And once again, the number that you bet matters. "The game is going to be decided on who plays the best, not who hypes the best or speaks the best". Quarterback Blake Bortles completed 14 of 26 pass attempts for 214 yards and another touchdown. So it's instructive to hear what offensive lineman Nate Solder said Monday when asked if the Patriots can draw on their experience in these games when they play host to Jacksonville. He liked what he saw.

"When you have those type of players and that type of defense playing the way that they do, I don't know who wouldn't be confident", Slater said.

"The guys played with confidence all day long", Bortles said. It's kind of what's in their eyes.

Ticked off by several Steelers openly talking about a rematch with the Patriots with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line, the Jaguars took it out on Pittsburgh one touchdown at a time.

The total has gone under in three of the Jaguars' last four games against the Patriots. He also had three catches for 25 yards.

Despite it being the defense's worst performance of the season, the players stayed calm. "Nobody was pointing fingers".

"I don't know what's going on with people's contracts", he said. Pittsburgh, their offense is high-powered. And we knew if we got an early lead, we could do some good things. Cornerbacks, Jalen Ramsey and A.J. The Patriots can come at you in waves, and games can get out of control in a hurry, which was evident during their rout of Tennessee on Saturday night.

The Jags are 0-7 against the Brady-Belichick combination.

So yes, a team with Bortles as its starting quarterback is in the AFC championship game. They will surely approach the game differently than the Steelers and will undoubtedly be better coached against the Jaguars. Against an eventual Hall of Fame quarterback with an explosive offense.

"For me, you don't realize how big a moment it is you're in", Brunell said.

At Discount Travel on Beach Boulevard, owner Steve Crandall is offering a round-trip flight, a hotel stay for two nights and a rental auto for just less than $600 per person. The Patriots just abused them'.

"Emotions tend to get in the way of that".
