I love a true underdog story.
We are two days away from the Jaguars playing the Patriots in the AFC Championship game! If I were to make a prediction that the Jaguars would be in this position a year ago, 99% of people would think it was a joke and the Jags were the punchline. But, we are in it and I hope we can win it!
We are up against arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history - Tom Brady. No biggie, right?! The Patriots are in their seventh consecutive AFC championships game, so this is normal for them. Jaguar fans aren't used to watching their team into mid-late January. But, I love being the underdog!
Tom Coughlin and Doug Marrone have done an incredible job of cleaning up the "we are just trying to get better" mindset that prevailed several years in the past and brought back hard-working, old-school, tough defense and efficient offense (when Blake plays well).
The Jaguars are coming into the game as nine-point underdogs. But, I believe that the Jaguars can pull off the upset at Foxborough! Our defense is young and ready for any challenge that comes their way (As an FSU fan, watching Telvin Smith and Jalen Ramsey play at the highest level has been incredible).
I'm super excited for the team and our city!
America - come on and be a Jaguar fan this Sunday!
