The New England Patriots gave the NFL, their fans and television networks a good scare on Sunday. But after scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter — despite tight end Rob Gronkowski missing the second half while in the concussion protocol and quarterback Tom Brady playing with stitches in his throwing hand — the Patriots will reprieve their role in the Super Bowl following a 24-20 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Sunday. New England will play the Philadelphia Eagles, winners against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship.

Patriots fans are likely well-versed in getting to the Super Bowl, considering this is New England’s seventh appearance in the NFL’s marquee event this decade. But New England’s road to the Super Bowl wasn’t an easy one. After shellacking the Tennessee Titans in an AFC Divisional game, New England had to prep for the NFL’s No. 2 defense in Jacksonville. The Jaguars, who allowed a league-low 169.9 passing per game (No. 1 in the NFL) and 286.1 yards in total offense, were not only unable to stop Brady, who cut his throwing hand during practice last week, they allowed New England to roll up 344 yards, including 298 in the air. On offense, the Jags led the NFL in rushing yards per game with 141.4, but the Patriots were able to limit them to 101.
