Wow, Jags open the game up with 2 TDs, 14-0 lead, who would think it?

The Jaguars defense this year is pretty good. Not quite as impressive all around as that 2015 Broncos defense was, but it doesnít need to be because this yearís Jaguars have something the 2015 Broncos lacked: a functional offense. To their credit, that Broncos offense often did come through when it needed to do so, but this yearís Jaguars, Bortles notwithstanding, is far superior to that 2015 Broncos offense. Last weekís game was pretty bad but Bortles has also shown himself capable at points along the way too. Can he keep it up on the playoffs? @ Steelers followed by @ Patriots? With that defense they have a chance.

Iíll have to politely disagree. I watched that 27-20 game and while the Patriots didnít run away with it they were in control from the start. And despite the final being a 1-score final, it was 27-13 ~8 minutes into the 4th quarter. Reidís prevent offense tidied up the final score but at no point did the Chiefs ever look like a credible threat to win that game.

Reid is 0-2 against the Patriots in the postseason and 2-4 against them in the regular season. His only win against them when he coached the Eagles was in 1999, before Belichik and Brady showed up. So, no, it doesn't look like he always has a good blueprint for beating them.

Yes.

New England scored less than five minutes into the game and led for the rest of the game. And the final Chiefs touchdown to make it a one-score game came with barely a minute left to play. They never got the ball back and so never even possessed the ball with a chance to tie the game.

There's no real shame in not beating the Patriots much, but Reid's 1-6 record against B & B is worse than the league's composite record against the team since Belicik took over the reins (The rest of the NFL is about .750 against the Pats during that time).

How about Super Bowl XXXIX?

Don't you remember? That was because Donovan McNabb got tired. At least so a certain somebody says.

It looks like I'll be 3-0 vs the spread this weekend. We'll see though about Jacksonville hanging on to win outright without Fournette. These dumb players never learn. No excuse for unsportsmanlike penalties such as the one after the fumble return that made it 28-7. Its back to a two possession game at the half, likely because of the silly penalty.

Steelers also fortunate, because Pouncey clearly should have been ejected early in the game for pushing an official.
