Tom Brady had some choice words for a cameraman while taking the field Sunday for the Patriots’ AFC Championship Game against the Jaguars.
Brady’s frustration with the cameras continued, as he appeared to use profanity when asking for a group of them to be removed from the field.
We don’t play again until Wednesday, so I have some time to think about how to fix this, Van Gundy said. We just don’t play hard on a consistent basis. We’ve fallen behind early, but even when we had a great start on Friday (against Washington), we didn’t keep it going.
The Nets led 53-48 at halftime. The Pistons had one offensive rebound in the half, slowed by Drummond’s three fouls.
The Jaguars have made only two previous AFC championship appearances — in 1996 and 1999. They lost both, but this year’s group is confident it can pull off another upset following last weekend’s surprise 45-42 divisional win at Pittsburgh.
The Eagles and Vikings have a combined six Super Bowl appearances between them but no championships in the Super Bowl era. The winner of Sunday’s NFC championship will hope to rectify that.
While the Jaguars have been impressive in beating the Bills and Steelers, the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots present their biggest challenge.
Bortles has been far too inconsistent throwing the ball to trust the Jaguars at Gillette Stadium against a seasoned team like the Patriots, even with QB Tom Brady nursing a sore throwing hand.
