Pats vs. Jags: The Quest For Perfection Continues

(click on image for video)
Of course, the perfect regular season New England Patriots are favored to win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are dominated by the Patriots in offense, defense, special teams, and coaching. If the Patriots have a difficult time in winning the game, it will be due to their own over-confidence. This was what happened last year in the 2006 Conference Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots were leading in the second half and decided to play a soft defense and their offense tried to use up as much game time as possible. It ended catastrophically, because the Colts made short passes and rushes, and eventually won the game. To win against the Jaguars, the Patriots defense needs to stay aggressive. The Patriots’ defense needs to put pressure on Garrard and watch for the quarterback scramble for the entire game. The Patriots’ offense needs to continuously score even when they are ahead.

The Patriots will be the most widely watched team, as NFL fans want to see if the Patriots will continue winning in the playoffs and set the new record for a perfect entire NFL season of 19 consecutive wins.
