The 2018 NFL Playoffs schedule features two Conference Championship games on Sunday. The first matchup is the AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars. The winner of this game will represent the AFC in Super Bowl LII.
The Patriots are 7.5 point favorites at home despite Tom Brady dealing with some kind of hand/finger injury. Jacksonville’s defense should give Brady a tough time in this one. Blake Bortles might give the Jaguars a tough time to win, though, if the bad version shows up.
As far as the Eagles’ rooting interest is concerned, I’d imagine a lot of people want to see the Jaguars win. Bortles is obviously much less scary than Brady. But New England’s defense also isn’t nearly as good as Jacksonville’s unit.
Who would you rather see in the Super Bowl if the Eagles beat the Vikings today? I’ll leave it up to you to vote in the poll below (click here if you can’t see it).
