Brady is 7-0 in his career against the Jaguars (including the playoffs) prior to Sunday’s game in the AFC Championship Game, his most victories without defeat against a rival. He has been particularly lethal against them at home, accumulating a 5-0 mark, with 14 touchdowns without interceptions.
Here is a recount that will surely awaken some memories:
December 14, 2003 – Patriots 27, Jaguars 13: With snow falling and a slippery surface at home, Brady completed 22 of 34 passes for 228 yards with two touchdowns with no interceptions while the Patriots added their victory No. 10 – a record by then– in a row to reach the mark of 12 wins in a season for the first time. Jacksonville, under the direction of head coach Jack Del Rio, dropped to 4-10.
“We’ve played nine games this year at home, including the preseason, and we’ve won all nine,” Brady said that day. “That really is a recognition of the home advantage, our hobby makes it difficult for rivals to communicate, and to see them last week throw snowballs into the air, we talked about that during the week.
