The Jacksonville Jaguars have been known to wilt in the cold of the Northeast (0-5 in Foxboro). But they are a desperate team fighting for their playoff lives AND an unusual warmth of near 50 degrees is greeting the Jags as they come onto the field at Gillette Stadium. Will those 2 factors be enough for the Jags to be a serious challenge to Tom Brady’s 22 game home winning streak?
Vince Wilfork is again out this week which will not help the Pats hopes of slowing down Jacksonville mighty-mite 5’7″ running back Maurice Jones-Drew. No other surprises or notables on the sideline for the Patriots-Darius Butler, Nick Kaczur, Tyrone Wheatley are also on the inactive list. Wide Receivers Julian Edelman and Sam Aiken are active.
Tho the field has been covered so the turf should not be too slippery, conditions could still be tricky.
More updates to come.
