The New England Patriots defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game and claimed their third Super Bowl berth of the past four seasons and cementing their position as the greatest dynasty in NFL history.

But it wasn’t easy. The Jaguars had a plan to stop the Patriots offense in the first half and there’s a chance the Philadelphia Eagles could copy that in the Super Bowl. But Tom Brady and company found a way to overcome their problems, despite missing Rob Gronkowski for the second half.

Meanwhile, the Patriots defense struggled in the first half, but there were some crucial changes in the second half that allowed New England to mount their comeback.

Oh, and the Eagles crushed the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game. The real question is whether that was a fluke or if the Patriots can expect the same potent Eagles offense.
