I missed the game mostly, so ignoring the reffing, which is always somehow contentious when the Pats play, how did they do it this time? #1 pass defense, Gronk and Edelman mostly out, and they comeback anyway?

Pats played their game, Jags went conservative in the second half, particularly on first down.

Yep. They took their foot off the gas pedal. And the defense found its confidence again. And the Pats offense IMO was a little better than it looked in the first half. Once the receivers started holding on to the ball they controlled the ball a lot better.

I was telling my housemate about how this game reminded me a lot of the 2014 game against the Ravens. Defense comes out squirrely, offense misses a few plays, but once they got their feet underneath them they took control.

i actually felt the same way (or rather reminded me of the Seahawks game, we were down by 10 going into the 4th)

I honestly felt the refs were ok this game, at least in my opinion, the flags thrown were all obvious

(like the neck hold that gave us an auto 1st down, Gronk's obvious helmet to helmet), i mean the Jags also got the ball back on Lewis' fumble. I may have missed a couple but i think the refs were very good today, and it's not because we won that i think that lol

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAA BABYYYYYY!!! PATS WON!

That was TOUGH. Credit to JAX, they played a helluva game and will definitely be threats in the future (especially if they can replace Bortles with an Eli, or Bridgewater, or Cousins). But Bortles played a great game overall as well, so kudos to him.

Tom Brady is THE GOAT. Down 20-10, less than 14 minutes to go, against the #1 pass defense in the league, and he leads 2 TD drives? WOW. Almost like the SB three years ago vs. Seattle in the 4th quarter. Could have been 3 TD drives if Lewis didn't fumble there too.

Also, Stephon Gilmore definitely EARNED his entire contract with that CLUTCH pass break up late in the game.  ;D

The Pats defense started off iffy, but boy did they stop Fournette in the last 20 minutes of the game. Forced Bortle to win them the game and he couldn't.

And JAMES HARRISON! OH MY. Steelers fans must be FUMING now!!  :laugh:

Amendola underrated but CLUTCH again. Hope we keep him this off-season!

Sorry for sounding like a girl with my exclamation points and all-caps, but MAN I'M HAPPY!  ;D

For all the talk of the "vaunted Jacksonville defense", it was the Pats defense that dominated that 2nd half and won the game. They deserve a ton of credit for their play since week 5.

Harrison and Flowers were both really strong, as was that swat by Gilmore.

In the fourth Brady crushed their defence too, it was fantastic

You can't ever count the Belichick/Brady Pats out!! Great job by all involved in the 2nd half!

You really have to love "Playoffs Amendola." He always comes through when it matters the most (man, that one catch in the middle of the field reminded me of the one Welker dropped in SB XLVI). Big plays by the defense down the stretch, too.

When a team is missing its 2nd, 3rd, and 4th best players (Edelman, Gronk, Hightower), you don't expect to win...unless you are the Patriots!

One more big win guys - Let's go!!  ;D

There were some amazingly clutch plays by the Pats in the 4th quarter. Brady, Amendola, Lewis, Gilmore.
