On the road to the Super Bowl 2018

Two down and one more to go. The New England Patriots are the AFC champions for the third time in four years. We are going to the Super Bowl LII!

It was a great game - close and down to the wire. How else would the Pats play it? We beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20. A lot of good plays on both sides of the ball, I feel we were most fortunate to come out on top. Tom Brady had an injured right hand, but it was hard to tell as he made some very good passes. And for us fans, the weather was mild and we were not freezing like we were last week when we beat the Titans to advance to the AFC championship game.

Here are a few photos.

This is Willie McGinest, a fan favorite. He was a linebacker for the Patriots from 1994 until 2006. He makes many return appearances to Gillette Stadium and the crowd loves him.

Maurice ( I did not catch his last name) was a former running back with Jacksonville and also well loved by his team and fans. Willie and Maurice gave a brief interview together outside of the stadium before the game started. He was nice and posed for pictures with many Jacksonville fans.

A break in the action.

New England Patriots win 24 - 20 over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Danny Amendola scored two touchdowns. He is on stage with TB12.

Mr. Robert Kraft, the owner of the Patriots receives the trophy. He bought the team 24 years ago (1994) and has been to the Super Bowl as team owner 8 times, this year will be the 9th. In total the Patriots will have been to the Super Bowl 10 times, eight trips for the Belichick/Brady team. They are working on their 6th victory. Blitz for six. NOT DONE is the mantra this post-season. Do Your Job is every season.

Our quarterback, Tom Brady, number 12.

And we are off to Minnesota for Super Bowl LII. Sorry I am not in the "we", but will watch from the comfort of my couch in my living room!
