Patriots Still Perfect

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Brady was nearly perfect for the New England Patriots, who are still perfect with their 17th victory this season, a thorough 31-20 win over Jacksonville in the AFC divisional playoffs. The Patriots will host the winner of Sunday's Indianapolis-San Diego game next Sunday for a trip to the Super Bowl.
Brady completed his first 16 passes and tossed three touchdown
passes in their victory. Brady finished 26-of-28 for 262 yards.
Laurence Maroney ran for 122 yards and one TD to compliment Brady's
passing.
David Garrard (guh-RARD') kept the Jaguars close, completing 14
of his first 18 passes and two touchdowns. But Rodney Harrison made
an interception with 4:08 left to help preserve the win. The Pats
were machine-like, grinding out three scoring drives of at least 80
yards.
New England was so efficient on offense that it only punted once
-- in the final minute of the game.
If the Patriots make it to the February 3rd NFL title game,
they'll have a chance to complete the league's first 19-0 season.
The Pats are trying to join the 1972 Miami Dolphins as the only
unbeaten Super Bowl champions.
