Jaguars don't fear Patriots' history in AFC title matchup

Jaguars don't fear Patriots' history in AFC title matchup

The week started with a little trash talk from the underdog . The rest of it was dominated by speculation about a certain 40-year-old quarterback's injured throwing hand .Plenty of intrigue for when the Jaguars and Patriots meet in Sunday's AFC championship game?New England (14-3), the defending Super Bowl champion, is favored heading into its seventh straight conference title game. But the polished veneer it normally displays at this time of year is showing flecks of imperfection after Tom Brady injured his right hand during practice.The injury kept Brady limited in workouts to begin the week and caused him to sit out practice entirely on Thursday.Brady has never missed a playoff start during his 18-year career that includes four Super Bowl MPV honors. He said a bit contentiously only 'We'll see' on Friday when asked if he would play Sunday.He wore red gloves and responded to other questions about the hand's status by saying 'I'm not talking about that.'The Patriots' top-ranked offense will need another signature performance from Brady against the Jaguars' second-ranked defense .Jacksonville (12-6), trying to earn a trip to its first Super Bowl, has scored eight defensive touchdowns this season, three more than any other team. That's the most defensive touchdowns in a season by one team since the 2012 Bears.Brady has faced a top-2 scoring defense in the playoffs three times, going 3-0 with a passer rating of 100-plus in each game.Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said their respect for Brady is high. Then he dismissed the notion that anyone in Jacksonville felt like the Jags were simply playing with 'house money' after surprising Pittsburgh in the divisional round.'We have earned the right to be here,' he said. 'We have put a lot of time and effort in, so this is an opportunity we feel like we deserve and we have prepared for. I can honestly say I expected to be here.'Jacksonville will also be up against history: The Patriots have won the past seven meetings with the Jaguars and two straight in the postseason. Since Jacksonville entered the NFL in 1995, it is 1-10 against the Patriots, including playoff games.'We are going to go out and there do everything possible to stay alive and earn the right to be in the Super Bowl,' Campbell said. 'They say you have to beat the best to be the best, so I can't wait to get out there and try.'Quarterback Blake Bortles, who has been the subject of criticism at times during his career , said Sunday isn't about trying to prove anyone wrong.'I don't think so. Personally, I do not care,' he said.Here are some things to watch for:FOURNETTE'S HEALTH: Jaguars rookie RB Leonard Fournette said he is feeling 'good' after he was rear-ended in what authorities say was a minor three-car crash early in the week.Fournette ran for 109 yards and three touchdowns against the Steelers despite reinjuring his right ankle in the first half. It was his most productive game in three months.'I feel good in spite of the ankle and stuff,' Fournette said. 'Just taking care of my body, but overall I feel good.'BULLETIN BOARD MATERIAL? All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey caused a stir when he told thousands of fans awaiting the team's return after their win over the Steelers that the Jaguars 'are going to the Super Bowl and we are going to win that (expletive).'Asked about Ramsey's comment, Patriots special teams captain Matt Slater said Ramsey has reason to show confidence.'He should be confident, because he is very, very good,' Slater said. 'The good Lord made that guy, and he said, 'Let there be corner.' And there he is. I'd be confident if I were him as well.'CONTAINING GRONK: Coach Doug Marrone has seen plenty of Rob Gronkowski dating back to his stint as Buffalo's head coach. His approach to trying to slow down a tight end he calls a 'nightmare' of a matchup hasn't changed much.'Hope they do not throw him the football. Hope he drops it,' Marrone said. 'There is no secret formula. I'd like to watch a game where someone has been able to do it. He is going to make his plays and you hope those plays don't end up killing you.'In his past six postseason games, Gronk has 512 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. He is looking for his seventh playoff game in a row with a TD catch.SIZING THEM UP: Brandin Cooks is used to being underestimated because of his size. So the 5-foot-10 Patriots receiver isn't worried about matching up against the taller players in Jacksonville's secondary.Both Jaguars starting cornerbacks, Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, are listed at 6-foot-1 and 6-0 respectively.'I mean, you go and play,' Cooks said. 'We're not talking measurements at this point in the season, you know?'Cooks said Bouye he's gotten better since he faced him during joint practices this summer.'At the end of the day they're physical. And that's how they play,' Cooks said. 'And they use that to their strength. So we gotta be ready to be able to match that physicality.'___AP Sports Writer Mark Long in Jacksonville, Florida contributed to his report.___For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL

JSO: Off-duty Jacksonville firefighter has personal truck stolen, while helping crash victims

JSO: Off-duty Jacksonville firefighter has personal truck stolen, while helping crash victims

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating after an off-duty firefighter had his personal truck stolen, while he was helping victims of a crash early Friday morning.  According to the incident report from JSO, the JFRD firefighter was driving on North Myrtle Avenue when a traffic crash happened right in front of him.  He told police he jumped out of his truck to help the victims and render first aid. He says while helping the crash victims, two young men got into his truck and started driving away, hitting a fence in the process.  The report describes the first suspect as a black teen, between 15 and 18-years-old, and about 5'7''. The other suspect is said to be a black teen, also between 15 and 18-years-old. However, he's believed to be much taller, between 6'2'' and 6'4'.  The stolen truck is said to be a gold 2008 Ford F-250 Series, with JFRD and US Marine Corps stickers in the back window. There's also said to be a JFRD license plate mounted on the front bumper, with a Chrome Grill Guard attached.  Police say there's also likely to be damage to the truck's left rear bumper and tailgate, from the suspects backing into the fence.

Supreme Court to rule on Trump travel ban

Supreme Court to rule on Trump travel ban

The Supreme Court agreed Friday to decide the legality of the latest version of President Donald Trump's ban on travel to the United States by residents of six majority-Muslim countries.The issue pits an administration that considers the restrictions necessary for Americans' security against challengers who claim it is illegally aimed at Muslims and stems from Trump's campaign call for a 'complete shutdown of Muslims' entering the U.S.The justices plan to hear argument in April and issue a final ruling by late June on a Trump policy that has been repeatedly blocked and struck down in the lower courts.The latest of those rulings came last month when the federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled that the travel ban Trump announced in September violates federal immigration law.The federal appeals court in Richmond, Virginia, also is considering a challenge to the ban.Last month, the high court said the ban could be fully enforced while appeals made their way through the courts.The policy applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. It also affects two non-Muslim countries: blocking travelers from North Korea and some Venezuelan government officials and their families.The Supreme Court has never ruled on whether any of the three versions of the travel ban is legal. The court agreed last June to take up the second version until it expired in the early fall.Trump's first travel ban was issued almost a year ago, almost immediately after he took office, and was aimed at seven countries. It triggered chaos and protests across the U.S. as travelers were stopped from boarding international flights and detained at airports for hours. Trump tweaked the order after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit refused to reinstate the ban.The next version, unveiled in March, dropped Iraq from the list of covered countries and made it clear the 90-day ban covering Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen didn't apply to those travelers who already had valid visas. It also got rid of language that would give priority to religious minorities. Critics said the changes didn't erase the legal problems with the ban.The same appeals courts that are evaluating the current policy agreed with the challengers. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond said the ban 'drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.' The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Trump violated immigration law.The Supreme Court allowed the ban to take partial effect, but said those with a claim of a 'bona fide' relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country. Grandparents, cousins and other relatives were among those who could not be excluded.But the high court said lower courts were wrong to apply the same limits to the new policy, at least while it is being appealed. The justices did not explain their brief order.The third version is permanent, unlike the other two, and the administration said it is the product of a thorough review by several agencies of how other countries' screen their own citizens and share information with the U.S.Solicitor General Noel Francisco said in court papers that the policy is well within the president's 'broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens outside the United States when he deems it in the Nation's interest.'In response, the challengers said the policy violates the Constitution because it is biased against Muslims and also violates immigration law. The new version continues 'the same unlawful policy' that was struck down by lower courts last year, lawyer Neal Katyal said in his brief on behalf of the challengers.

Trump Administration official says Florida could still see new offshore drilling

Ten days after Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke told the Governor of Florida that his state was “off the table” for new offshore oil and gas exploration, the official in charge of the review of offshore waters told Congress that no final decision has been made, no matter what was publicly declared by the Secretary.

“So, right now, Florida’s shores are still in jeopardy if or until an official decision is made, is that correct?” asked Rep. Darren Soto (D-FL) at a hearing of the House Natural Resources Committee.

“They’re still part of the analysis until the Secretary gives us an official [More]
