Patriots Heading Back To Super Bowl

The New England Patriots are looking forward to making their 10th Super Bowl appearance. Last night the Patriots beat the Jacksonville Jaguars to be the AFC champs. Their 24 to 20 victory leads them to their 10th Super Bowl appearance.

The Winning Catch

The Patriots overcame the 10-point deficit and ending the game with a winning catch. The Patriots were losing until Danny Amendola made the winning catch that put the Patriots over the edge to take the victory from the Jaguars. According to Bill Belichick, Patriots head coach, Amednola is the definition of a good football player.

Even though New England’s tight end Rob Gronkowski left the game injured the play by Amendola shows the confidence that runs throughout the team. During the game against the Jaguars, Gronkowski suffered a concussion and didn’t return to the field. Without Gronkowski, the Patriots were at a disadvantage, but if there’s one thing about the Patriots that Tom Brady has faith in is New England’s consistent confidence on the field. Tom Brady believes in his team and their ability to play until the very end, and last night’s winning catch by Amendola was an example of that.

Flashback

The Patriots are going back to the Super bowl for another win. For the Patriots, Super Bowl LII is a chance to repeat history.  Back in 2005, the Patriots won Super Bowl XXXIX with a score of 24 to 21 against the Eagles. The Eagles started out strong, but the Patriots came back with a strong finish. The last time these two teams played each other was back in 2015 when the Patriots lost 35 to 28. After the Patriots won against the Falcons 34 to 28 in overtime at Super Bowl LI last year, they are going back for another chance at being champions.

Don’t miss this rematch on February 4th at 6:30pm at the U.S. Bank Stadium.
