Patriots Win AFC East Division

Patriots LogoThe Patriots are going to the NFL Playoffs again as the AFC East Division Champions after beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-21 in a very close game. This is their fourth straight AFC East Division Win and fifth in the past six years.

While the Patriots looked the better team throughout most of this contest, a desperate Jaguars team made things close in the end. It took a fumble recovery by Rodney Harrison, who returned to action from his injury earlier this season, to seal the win late in the fourth quarter.

Tom Brady spread the ball all over the field and to 10 different receivers en route to 249 yards passing on 39 attempts and 28 completions. His main target was Dave Thomas who had a career day with 5 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.

The Patriots take on Vince Young and the Tennessee Titans next week for the final regular season game.
