Found December 22, 2012 on AFC East Daily:
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New England Patriots' road matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars.Nick's take:Upset Alert: Just kidding. Cecil Shorts, who leads the AFC in yards per reception, is up against a Patriots defense that has given up the league's most passing plays of 20 yards or more. That's all the Jags have going for them in a game that will likely be over at halftime.Prediction: Patriots 40, Jaguars 17 (Nick's record: 34-12)Dan's take:The Jags are 0-3 against the AFC East, and now they get to face a Patriots team coming off a loss of its own. Jacksonville has had trouble stopping any offense this season let alone New England's, which is touting the league's No. 1 squad. This should be a cakewalk for the Pats.Prediction: Patriots 44, Jaguars 20 (Dan's record: 27-19)Sean's take:The Patriots hope to re-establish some momentum after their wild loss to the 49ers.

Cecil Shorts Suffered Concussion vs. Patriots

Jacksonville wideout Cecil Shorts suffered a concussion Sunday against the Patriots.Fantasy Spin:We doubt Jacksonville would risk reinjuring one of their best players in a meaningless Week 17 game so this is probably the last we'll see of Shorts this season. Assuming he's done for the year, Shorts will finish the 2012 campaign with a career-high 979 yards on 55 catches.

Jaguars activate linebacker Daryl Smith

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have activated linebacker Daryl Smith from injured reserve and placed safety Dwight Lowery on IR with a foot injury. Smith likely will start Sunday's game against New England. Smith missed the first 14 games of the season because of a groin injury. He was placed on IR on Oct. 25, with the designation to return. He returned...

Acrobatic Lloyd key part of Patriots passing game

The New England Patriots needed a deep threat so they signed Brandon Lloyd. They ended up with an acrobat. Lloyd has made many airborne, twisting catches in his first season with the Patriots and is closing in on his career-high for receptions. With two games left, he has 67, just 10 short of the 77 he had in his best pro season in 2010 with the Denver Broncos. In last Sunday...

Tebow to the Jaguars “a virtual certainty” says ESPN's Chris Mortensen

Well, it looks like the New York Jets will send Tim Tebow packing after this season, and the other team that was in the running for his services last season, looks to bring him in, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. So much so that Mortensen has called it “a virtual certainty” that Tebow is a Jaguar next season. He says owner Shad Khan, who wanted Tim last year as...

Chad Henne Tops 300 Yards vs. Patriots

Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne produced an impressive yardage total Sunday against New England (348 yards on 51 attempts) but his three interceptions put a damper on the afternoon.Fantasy Spin:To Henne's credit, not all of the miscues were his fault. One of the picks came on a desperation heave at the end of the game and the Jaguars receiving corps had butter fingers all...

Rob Gronkowski Inactive For Fifth Straight Week

After practicing last Friday and continuing to work in a limited capacity throughout this week, hopes were high for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to play this Sunday versus the Jaguars in Jacksonville. But alas, the broken forearm that has kept Gronk sidelined the past four weeks has also rendered him inactive this weekend, the Patriots announced today. That makes quite a bit...

MJD Won't Return Week 16

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) didn't practice and is out to play Sunday against the Patriots, according to the Jaguars' website.Fantasy Spin:We consider him doubtful for Week 17 as well since it doesn't pay for either side to risk re-injury. Jones-Drew will likely be seeking a contract extension again in the offseason and Jacksonville will need its star...

Patriots’ Sloppy Win Over Lowly Jaguars Raises More Red Flags About Postseason Expectations

The Patriots at least had an excuse for last week’s letdown. This week, though? There’s really no good reason for their performance. Tom Brady approached the postgame podium with a piercing look of anger and frustration strewn across his face, as if to let everyone know the displeasure he felt. He was short in his responses and didn’t last more than a few minutes before closing...

New England Patriots at Jacksonville Jaguars: Week 16 NFL Pick

New England Patriots (10-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-12) Tom Brady and the Patriots lost last week, but there was still a lot to like from that game. They scored 34 points on the league’s best defense, despite a season high 4 turnovers and despite missing Rob Gronkowski. Their defense surrendered 41 points, but that could have been a lot less if not for the uncharacteristic 4...

Mortenson reports that Tim Tebow is a virtual certainty to wind up in Jacksonville; in hindsight he should have picked the hometown team to begin with

This March, as we all know, Tim Tebow was traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets. There was some ambiguity at the time but  everyone involved in the trade not named Tim suggested that with two teams interested the choice came down to the player's preference. With reports emerging that Tebow will end up in Jacksonville this offseason it's hard not to wonder if...

Keys To Victory vs. The Jaguars

I want to see the fire from Brady regardless of the opponentEach week there is a new gameplan, a new formula for victory. Each week certain aspects of the game just loom larger than the rest. The idea is not to divine the course of the contest, but to highlight the match-ups and intangibles that I'll have my eye on during the broadcast. 1. A Pissed-Off Brady - I have always thought...

Gameday Deciding Factors: Patriots at Jaguars

BY DAN BEGNOCHEAfter being brought back down to Earth last week at the hands of the San Fransisco 49ers, the New England Patriots (10-4) head into Jacksonville this weekend, where a win has been been pretty easy to come by.The two-win Jaguars have struggled against the division as well as on the scoreboard, and they will now face a Patriots offense that's put up more than 500...
