Brady hurting or not, Jacksonville’s mentality wasn’t going to change heading into this game, as recording a sack or two isn’t what the Jaguars have in mind. For defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, it’s about being a “gnat” and keeping the pressure consistent. You sack him, he’s going to get up and just keep rolling,” Dareus said, according to ESPN.com’s David Newton. “He’s that competitive spirit, like, ‘OK, you got me. Now I’m gonna go throw this touchdown the next play. Forty yards. You happy about that sack, but there you go.’ That’s just his mentality.”
Those Jaguars know plenty about applying pressure, at least, after recording 55 sacks during the regular season and coercing opponents into 21 interceptions. But against Pittsburgh, a salvaged 45-42 win after jumping to a 21-0 advantage, Ben Roethlisberger still managed five touchdowns against one interception. Rest assured Brady has the film there and thoughts of his own on how to exploit the defense, provided his hand can make the throws.
The Patriots will also get running back Rex Burkhead (knee) back from injury. Burkhead has six touchdowns in his past four games and gives New England another versatile player out of the backfield in the AFC title game. He has been sidelined since Dec. 17 and practiced on a limited basis all week. It’s no surprise that Dragiev is leaning Under, but he knows there’s a critical x-factor that determines which side of Jaguars-Patriots you need to be all over. He’s only sharing his strong pick over at SportsLine.
