    Patriots-Jaguars and Vikings-Eagles in the Conference Title games. After today, we could see one of the whitest Superbowls in the past 25 years (Pats-Vikings), a “black vs. white” battle featuring either the Pats or Vikings, or an unwatchable “blackfest” between the Eagles and Jags. Best of luck to our guys today!

    I'm used to having the NFL Ticket and being able to switch games during the regular season when commercials come on. It's brutal having to watch the pre-game coverage and commercials on CBS leading up to this game. I even saw a segment featuring Jim Rome, aka Jim Tel Aviv, for the first time in years. Had thought he was retired, but no he still looks young enough to plague us for many more years to come.

    At least Nantz and Romo are calling the game, and Buck and Aikman should be doing the NFC telecast.

    Paul Posluszny is starting at middle linebacker for the Jaguars. Posluszny is the heart of the Jaguars' defense.

    Go Pats! Give all those DWFs, Castites, and virtue signalers another poke in the eye. I want them to win on account of the perception of them as a white friendly team, with the H.C. and QB Trump boosters to boot. Ha ha.

    Brady very sharp, obviously his hand injury isn't affecting his throwing

    Picking on Telvin Smith early - two big pass plays he has given up. Amendola has really become a late season/post season go to guy for the Pats.

    That's arguably 4 of the best in the business, so we have two very watchable games with an excellent broadcast crew to boot.

    Might as well enjoy this because no matter who makes it to the Super Bowl, the game will be on NBC and you know what that means.

    This is the kind of game that the Pats could really use Edelman’s toughness.

    Jaguars are going straight through the Patriots' coal black defense.

    Fournette running all over the Patriots........Bortles looking sharp. Patriots need to score on this next drive....

    NE is in for a fight. Defense is on its heels.

    Yep, their defense is going to make it very hard for them to win another Super Bowl. It’s all going to fall onto Brady’s shoulders, as usual.

    Maybe the truck will use CGI to create an imaginary White New England defensive player to focus on as the goat.

    This is a game where the Patriots really miss the offenses heart-n-soul Julian Edelman. They're going to have to dig deep! Fournette gashing the Patriots defense. Bortels proving haters wrong so far..

    Hopefully the Pats D can stop them from getting another TD this last 5 minutes, and they can make some adjustments in the second half.

    Pats defense getting exposed.

    Pats need I formation football - put Develin in there and use Burkhead or their other big backs to offset the pass rush.

    Looked like Burkhead was hit very hard directly on his spine. . .

    Yep, what else is new? Come next year, it'll be just as coal black. Definition of insanity.

    Surprised by Bortles' performance, though. Was going to say just focus on stopping Fournette and let Bortles beat you with his arm, but that obviously wouldn't work with the way he's playing. One big positive this year, no matter how these conference championship games play out, is the resurgence or assurgence of White QBs like Bortles, Foles, Keenum, Goff and Garrapolo.

    If the Pats can score a FG or TD before halftime they're right back in it

    If NE can close out the first at 14-10 Jags, they will be in good shape. I hope.
