The Patriots defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 to win their second consecutive AFC Championship. The Pats overcame a 10 point fourth quarter deficit to advance. This will be New England’s third Super Bowl in four years and their eighth in the Brady-Belichick Era.
In the second game, the Philadelphia Eagles blew out the Minnesota Vikings 38-7. This was the Eagles’ second straight Playoff win as a road underdog. The Vikings marched right down the field for a touchdown to open the game, but the Eagles took control from that point. Nick Foles threw for 352 yards and 3 touchdowns to carry Philadelphia to the conference title.
This is the second time these two teams will meet in pro football’s championship game. They also met in Super Bowl XXXIX
