No one or I should say no experts gave Jacksonville a chance against the Steelers. he main reason was …Blake Bortles. Yet it is Blake Bortles in the AFC championship game vs Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The Jaguars caught the Steelers napping maybe looking at the Patriots. It cost the Steelers the game and now Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley has been fired. Here is the question …is Jacksonville good enough to knock off the Patriots or will the bubble burst in the AFC Championship game? Will the Patriots be caught dreaming that this is easy and start thinking about getting to the Super Bowl?
Two things Jacksonville has going for it …it’s defense and running game, the second is Tom Coughlin is in Bill Belechick and Tom Brady’s heads. They met Coughlin and the Giants twice in the Super Bowl and twice the Giants walked away with super bowl wins. Can the Jaguars add to Coughlin’s legacy against the Patriots? We will see.
