Brady Immune To Controversy And Pats Will Play Jags In AFC Championship, Eagles To Play Vikings In NFC Championship


Tom Brady proved once again he’s immune to any outside influences or controversy, as he ignored a week of the press hounding him about friction in his relationship with coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft and threw 3 touchdowns in a win over the Tennessee Titans. The Patriots were down 7-0, but then found their rhythm and never looked back. With the 35-14 win, the Patriots will be heading to their 7th straight AFC Championship Game.

Even with QB Ben Roethlisberger throwing for 469 yards and 5 touchdowns, the Pittsburgh Steeelers didn’t have enough to hold off the Jacksonville Jaguars. In  post-game interviews, the Steelers’ defense was distraught over its missed plays and now the Jags will face the Patriots for the AFC Championship.


The Philadelphia Eagles entered the divisional playoff against the Atlanta Falcons as underdogs even though they were ranked #1. Without their startling quarterback Carson Wentz, many wrote the Eagles off. Replacement, Nick Foles, looked shaky at first but then rallied the team throwing for 246 yards and no interception for a 15-10 win.

The Minnesota Vikings haven’t been to the NFC Championship game since 2009, but with 10 seconds to play and down 23-24, QB Case Keenum heaved the ball 61 yards downfield, a play they called “Seven Heaven”, to Stefan Diggs for the touchdown and the win. The Vicings will now face the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.
