Breaking out: Pats capture 5th division in 6 years

The Patriots won another t-shirt and hat game Sunday, beating the Jaguars 24-21 to capture their 4th strait AFC East title and 5th in 6 years. The game was a bone cruncher that was dominated by the Pats defense, which allowed two mistakes to equil 14 points, but for the most part shut down Jacksonville. Tom Brady showed why he should have been picked for the Pro Bowl with 249 yards passing on 28 of 39 passing with no turnovers. Brady rushed for a personal best 31 yards on 10 carries, and was almost broken in half while diving for a first down in the 2nd half. The play knocked him out of the game, but he shook it off and returned two plays later. Lawrence Maroney made his return and broke a long touchdown run late that put the Pats ahead for good.
With wins this weekend, the Broncos and Jets will take the 5-6 seeds. The Pats (11-4) currently have the 4th seed and are following the sinking Colts (11-4), who defeated New England earlier in the season. If the Pats win the final game in Tennessee (and they may end up resting some starters) and the Colts lose, they would take on the 6 seed and could head down a road to Baltimore, as opposed to making a stop in San Diego after hopefully taking out the 5 seed. As for now UB would love to get a chance to beat up on the Broncos and their rookie QB, but the matchup against Denver never turns out good, so it might be better to take on the J-E-T-S...Either way the Pats will look styling in their new shirts and hats, with the hopes of collecting more.
