The numbers don’t lie, the Jaguars are being underestimated

So what happens when the unstoppable force meets the immovable object? Well, according to the stats, the immovable object wins everytime.

This Sunday, when Jacksonville plays New England in the AFC title game, the Patriots will undoubtedly be expected to win by the average fan out there. But maybe we should be putting the coronation of the Pats on hold.

Here’s something to consider, this Sundays game will only be the 4th playoff match up since 1990 to feature the leagues number 1 rated passer in Tom Brady, (the unstoppable force) against the leagues number 1 rated pass defense, (the immovable object). You know what happened the other three times? The team with the best passing defense won.

Now I know, this is the big bad Patriots and the Jaguars have no chance against them. They are an 8 point underdog and Blake Bortles doesn’t deserve to play in a Super Bowl. Belichick is a genius and can’t be beat, and blah blah blah.

It’s all the same, and maybe it’s true. But the fact of the matter is, this Jags team is motivated and they believe that they can get it done. They showed in Pittsburgh that the moment is not too big for them. And most of all, they are a very talented team.

So before we go ahead and crown the Patriots, let’s stop and look at the facts first and realize that maybe, just maybe, the Jacksonville Jaguars could very well end up in Minnesota playing in the Super Bowl.
