Best Of Social Media: Week 17 Jaguars vs PatriotsDavid Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots returned to Gillette Stadium for their home regular season finale against a two-win Jacksonville Jaguars team looking to not only snap their two-game losing streak but punch their ticket to the NFL playoffs.

Relive all the best sights and sounds shared across social media, before, during, and after the game below.

In the first quarter, the Patriots offense got off to a fast start as they scored an opening-drive touchdown for the seventh time this season.

Running back Damien Harris scored his 13th rushing touchdown of the year.

 

Following a Jaguars field goal to cut the deficit to four after one quarter of play, the Patriots rushing attack once again responded early in the second when Damien Harris found the end zone for a second time.

The Patriots defense meanwhile, began to clamp down on number one overall pick Trevor Lawrence.

Midway through the second quarter, newly promoted wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson hauled in his first career touchdown pass to up the Patriot lead to 21-3.

On the ensuing Jaguars drive, Trevor Lawrence threw his second interception of the game, this time to no other than “Mr. Int” himself, J.C. Jackson.

The turnover helped setup a Jakobi Meyers touchdown from Mac Jones just before halftime to give the Patriots a commanding 28-3 lead.

After a Jaguars punt to open the second half, the Patriots continued to dominate on offense as Kristian Wilkerson continued his impressive NFL debut with a second touchdown reception to push the lead to 34-3.

The Patriots defense meanwhile, continued to force turnovers that led to points.

A Rhamondre Stevenson rushing touchdown following the Kyle Dugger pick all but sealed a Patriots win as Mac Jones got rewarded with an early hook for Brian Hoyer through three quarters.

In the fourth quarter, Stevenson scored again to help push the Patriots lead up to 50-3, the second time the Patriots have reached 50 this season.

 

A Dare Ogunbowale touchdown pass from Trevor Lawrence in garbage time ended the scoring for the day as the Patriots would clinch a playoff spot following the Dolphins loss to the Tennessee Titans.

The Patriots will now head to Miami to play those Dolphins to wrap up the 2021 regular season with the hopes of improving their playoff seeding with a win.
