The first and most important step was to knock Tom Brady out of the contest, intentionally or otherwise. Brady won the first two, but Manning finished his career with a winning record against Brady in the postseason. It has to face Captain America (Tom Brady). Calais Campbell, Malik Jackson and Yannick Ngakoue are a load on the defensive line.
Asked Friday he'd prove a tough matchup should the Patriots line up all-pro tight end Rob Gronkowski outside against him in Sunday's AFC championship game, the Jacksonville Jaguars all-pro said matter-of-factly, "He hasn't played a corner like me before". Both times were with the Denver Broncos, as Manning's teammate, ironically. And playing for the AFC championship, as they will Sunday, is the closest the Jacksonville Jaguars have come to the championship.
If Jacksonville is going to have a chance, here are the key matchups.
As the head coach of the New York Giants, Coughlin beat Tom Brady and the Pats in two Super Bowls.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles (5) throws a pass during an NFL football practice in Jacksonville, Fla., Friday, Jan. 19, 2018.
Asked if this is a week when he, Belichick, might stress even more to his players not to say anything bulletin-board worthy, Hoodie McGrumpy-pants ignored the question and answered some unspoken phantom query. It was his most productive game in three months.
Jackson had a career high in sacks a year ago at six and a half. "So I changed some plans, and we'll be there".
Start off with defensive ends Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue, who combined for 26½ sacks.

Person-to-person transmission happens when an infected person's feces from unwashed hands contaminates food during preparation. In interviews, ill people answered questions about the foods they ate and other exposures in the week before they became ill.
And there's another element to this game. Surprisingly, the Tennessee Titans found a way to rally back against the Kansas City Chiefs pulling off the upset and winning by one point (22-21). But it took terrible officiating to keep one drive alive, and kill two Titans drives.
Whatever is the situation on Brady's hand, supporters of the Patriots can feel a little at ease given that Brady showed up in the stretching session at the very least.
Before that, he was struggling.
Gipson made 64 tackles, broke up seven passes and intercepted four others during the regular season.
Hoyer particularly said that Brady looked "great" in an interview with USA Today Sports. And no, we're not just talking about the advantage of having Manning.
Brady also gave away very little when asked if he had played in greater pain than he was now experiencing. The Eagles will break out the dog masks again, but the Vikings are the ultimate playoff underdogs, going 0-4 in Super Bowls and losing five straight NFC title games.
However, the high is 47 with sunny weather in the forecast Sunday. Injured hand or not, he probably will give the Jaguars problems as usual. Coach Doug Marrone has put together a team of nasty marauders on defense, and the Jaguars are going to try to get physical with Tom Brady and the rest of New England's crew of offensive playmakers.
