    Yes and no. Jax coming out of the gate looked like the real deal and they had an ax to grind after losing the AFCCG last year. Detroit and Tennessee two former Patriots came up with great game plans and in both of those games the OL was a mess with injuries. Miami has always been a house of horrors and they lost on a play that happens once every couple of seasons. Pittsburgh was a combination of the team killing itself with penalties and the zebras also home cooking for the Steelers.

    But at the same time they beat Houston, KC twice, LAC, LAR, Chicago and Indianapolis all playoff teams.

    Also in regards to JE11 remember he missed the first 4 games and had inconsistencies working his way back from injury. The finished product looked like the guy vs the Falcons but there were a lot of drops getting there.

    Mahomes is no Bortles but look at the Jags drop off. Matt Ryan and the Falcons went from SB to WC to out of the playoffs. The Eagles went from SB to WC to.......Wentz/Foles weren't there only issues.

    It's one season and to be honest I would have rooted for the Chiefs in the SB had they won that game. They were very complimentary in defeat and I haven't rooted for another AFC team since the 90's when the Pats don't make it.

    The torch that Brady holds is not for mere mortals. Those who try to hold it do so at their own risk. This type of torch doesn't get passed it, it isn't a torch that is based on one season or one signature play, it is based on a body of work built through years of dedication to mastering a craft and doing it with dignity and grace. They type of torch rational Chiefs fan is talking about is basically the season MVP award...the torch for mere mortals.

    If there were any Jaguars fans then they probably would have posted the same thing after last years AFCCG.
