Pittsburgh came into Sunday’s game against Jacksonville and seemingly played like a team thinking more about Bill Belichick and Tom Brady than they were about Doug Marrone and Blake Bortles – and it cost them.
There once was a time when the Patriots actually did beat a team coached by Tom Coughlin in the postseason.
Jacksonville, behind the power running of Leonard Fournette, play-action passing of Blake Bortles and that tough opportunistic defense raced out to a 21-0 lead
The Patriots entered the 2017 Divisional Playoffs as heavy favorites over the upstart Tennessee Titans, but were seeking to advance to their seventh consecutive AFC championship game.
With New England advancing to the AFC Championship game, here are some thoughts from Saturday night’s win over Tennessee.
Brady improved to an incredible 6-2 in playoff action when attempting 50+ passes. How is that incredible you ask? All other QBs attempting 50+ are a combined 3-28. Put that on a cliff
While throwing to Dion Lewis out of the backfield, Brady was 9-10 for 79 yards. Overall he was 13-17 for 108 yards targeting the backs.
NFL compiled video of every single Tom Brady postseason touchdown.
With the big men up front, the Patriots may try to keep them in their base look and then go hurry up to wear those big men down.
The Titans know that Brady has routinely carved up this style of defense, so look for them to mix in plenty of man coverage this week.
With a bye week coming up for the Patriots, it’s safe to say that every fan in New England will be waiting with anticipation to find out who the first opponent will be one week from Saturday when they next take the field.
