As a Pats fan, the Jaguars came as advertised, and I'm not talking about the overrated fake news crap. Great win, tough loss, and an excellent game.

Can't expect to let the Patriots hang around late and expect to win.

What a wasted season due to stupid penalties from their secondary.

Also, at the end of the game when the Patriots were running out the clock on the final snap, when the Jacksonville Jaguars were ousted and about to be sent packing for the season, some of their players decided to resort to pushing and shoving further showing what a bunch of poor losers they are. Go to the playoffs more than once a decade and maybe you'll grow up a bit and earn some class.

Ramsey got flagged for 2 obvious PI calls, yet people on social media are chirping they were not penalties.


Jacksonville has a bright future. Their defense is solid, and young. Fournette is a stud and this season should give Bortles confidence heading into 2018. Really the AFC South could be very exciting and one of, if not the best division in football next season.

Yep, too many penalties. Seattle did the pushing and shoviing thing at the end against the Jags in one of their last games of the season, so thatís really nothing new.

The reason that the Jags secondary gets called for PI it's because when their front 4 can't get any pass rush to the QB and you can't give elite QB like Ben or Brady all that time and expect the secondary to cover lots of ground.

Jaguars defense have to add blitz packages on passing down to get to the QB. The Eagles defense do it and they have a better success rate of rushing the passer than the Jaguars.

Jaguars did it one time when they brought a LB through the middle and hit Brady hard for a no gain but they didn't do it again. They have fast and athletic corners and safeties, they need to add blitz packages and keep the offense guessing.


49 ers scored 44 points. Steelers scored 42 points and Brady torched that secondary in the 4th quarter and he didn't have Gronk.

The Myles Jack fumble recovery whistle changed who won the game.

No whistle = Jags TD. No NE Patriot in front of him, and he can fly.

There should not have been a whistle on the play, as Jack was not contacted after the recovery.

The play on Gronk was suspect to me mainly because of Gronk size. Plus he dropped the ball before he was hit. That call was a bad call which set up the 2nd bad call that was pass interference. Jags defense played well enough, but the offensive play calling was bad. Where is the short passing plays? The running game wasn't working. I don't think the Jags will get this far next year. Congrats to New England on their 6th Super Bowl Championship though.

Nope, the last series 3rd down conversion won the game - Pats ran the clock out. The half a dozen PI aka muggings by Jags secondary didn't help either.
