    Seriously though, i reckon this will be an absolute cracker.

    Jags have the tools to worry NE (ala Denver 2015/16), but NE have the genius HC and the QB to pick the Jags apart... Really looking forward to this game.

    Its like we have said the past two weeks, Blake, it all comes down to you, dont shit the bed and your team has a real shot to cause an upset IMO.

    Pats experience to shine through and get them to another SB, but this will be no blow out.

    NE by 6.

    Im sure most of the week we will hear about the new england offense vs jacksonville defense match up which is obviously pivotal...but im keen to see the bortles fournette and jags offense again go against the patriots d.

    Jags offense would be full of confidence after hanging 5 tds

    I don't like the Jags, and have no confidence in Bortles to not **** this up, but I really hope they win

    Difference is Bortles has a cannon in comparison to Peyton (albeit it an inaccurate one)

    Big Dog Blake and Maliky Jackson gonna go in there and shock the world

    Lots of this pls:

    How does balmainforever feel that catters078 has hijacked his role in starting threads and scooped up a double helping of likes?

    NSWCROW is our GG. Also if you express a popular opinion on the F1 race thread like "Verstappen is a campaigner". You can boost your total.

    105-52

    Jacksonville Jaguars (+8|+23) @ New England Patriots (-4|+12) = Jaguars (+25) - 5 + 2 = Jacksonville +22

    Prediction: Jacksonville 29-22

    Would love for the Jags to win but the Pats will be too good and win by 14.

    Going for the Jags. A franchise that has been terrible for 10 years and I love watching their defence.
