AFC Championship Breakdown
The Patriots grabbed their second back-to-back Super Bowl appearance after claiming the AFC title. But, how did Tom Brady and his injured finger fare during the game? How did New England steal the win after struggling in the first half?
The Jaguars had the lead and controlled the majority of the game. They entered the fourth quarter with a 20-10 score. But knowing the Patriots, who are known for their determination, stole the show and dominated the fourth quarter with the help of Danny Amendola, who scored two crucial touchdowns that took the lead from the Jaguars.
Again, Jacksonville had an opportunity to regain the lead but funneled the chance as a fourth-down pass went incomplete. It was a cruel ending to the Jaguars’ fairytale-like season, and this loss will surely haunt them in the days to come.
It looks like Brady’s hand injury didn’t matter. After 10 stitches on his right hand and a sprained thumb, the legendary quarterback completed 26 out of 38 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns that sealed the Patriots’ eight trips to the Super Bowl in the Belichick-Brady era. It’s a good thing Super Bowl LII isn’t for another two weeks, which gives Brady time to rest and heal.
NFC Championship Breakdown
In Philadelphia–where the NFC Championship went about–the story is different. The Eagles, who embraced the underdog persona by wearing dog masks, trumped the Vikings with a score of 38-7 to reach their first Super Bowl since 2005.
