"You come back and you've got all the fans here and things of that nature", Jaguars Coach Doug Marrone said. The Vikings too should have lost but Keenum and Diggs did the Impossible (failed Saints defensive play and lineament in a cover 2 coverage on that final play) and scored with 10 seconds left.
Brady just had one of those typical days throwing the ball, completing 35 of his 53 pass attempts, throwing for 337 yards and three touchdowns. Danny Amendola had a big game going 11 for 13, 112 yards and converting five third downs. The Jags can win if their defense can pressure Tom Brady can keep all his weapons in check. Mariota was 22-for-37 with two touchdowns. I feel like the Patriots in some ways just won the playoffs lottery.

The Jaguars are playing in the conference title game for just the third time in franchise history, and first since losing to Tennessee during the 1999 season.
The Patriots open as heavy -8.5 favorites over the Jags but based on the way the Jags played against the Steelers this could be a way better game then it appears on paper.
The Steelers needed to utilize an onside kick, which backfired, as the Jaguars extended the lead to 45-35 after a Josh Lambo field goal with 1:45 to play. I know how hard it is to get to this game.
