Brady finished 26 of 28 for 290 yards and two touchdowns.

While Danny Amendola made several clutch catches in the 24-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and Dion Lewis has been unsafe all season, the key to stopping the Patriots will be containing Gronkowski. The New England coach was handed another one Sunday, after his team defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, and just as in 2017, he didn't seem all that excited to mark a win that wasn't quite for all the marbles.

The Patriots revamped their front seven with the midseason additions of Lee, James Harrison and Ricky Jean Francois and the elevation of linebacker Marquis Flowers from special teamer to key defensive contributor.

New England trailed 14-3 late in the first half, but scored a touchdown to trim the deficit to four points at he break.

At 40 years old, even with an injured hand, Brady is still the most fearsome quarterback in the National Football League with the game on the line.

After practicing Friday with a red glove on his throwing hand, Brady shed the glove for the game and simply protected his right thumb with black tape.

You may have noticed Tom Brady wore red gloves last week while the Patriots prepared for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Jacksonville Jaquars, the seventh consecutive title game for this dynastic franchise.

For Bortles it was his first loss this season when he didn't commit a turnover.

With just over two minutes left before halftime, New England's offense took over.

However, Bouye told ESPN the difference in penalties wasn't what cost the Jaguars.

On first-and-10 from the Patriots 40, Brady threw a long pass for Gronkowski, who was injured when he got popped by Barry Church just as the ball was arriving.

The conspiracy theorists' case that the fix was in is strengthened by the huge advantage the Patriots had over the Jaguars when it came to penalties.

Stephen Gostkowski hit all three of his extra points and his lone field goal attempt, which was from 31 yards.

Foles remained in the game in the fourth quarter with the Eagles comfortably ahead, 38-7.
