Tom Brady has owned the Jaguars in his career

AP

There’s a reason so much attention has been paid to the gloved right hand of Tom Brady this week.

That hand, and the rest of the quarterback it is attached to, has been perfect in his career against this week’s opponent.

As noted by Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, Brady is 7-0 against the Jaguars in his career, his most wins without a loss over any team (including playoffs). He’s also undefeated against the Falcons (6-0), Bears (4-0), Cowboys (4-0), Vikings (4-0), and Buccaneers (4-0).

But his level of mastery against the Jaguars is almost unreal. He’s thrown 17 touchdowns and two interceptions against Jacksonville, and both those picks were in the same game in 2012 (still won 23-16 on the road).

In total, he’s 171-for-237 passing (72.2 pct.), for 1,832 yards, and a passer rating of 114.8. So yeah, that’s pretty good, and a pretty good reason to stay on Glove Watch.

  1. Good history but it doesn’t mean anything now. Has Brady ever faced a defense who, statically, is better than the current Jaguars D? Serious question. I think the answer is no.

  2. Hoyer, aged 32 = 16-21 when starting, career rating 83.3 (and 86.8 since back @Pats)
    Bortles, aged 25 = 21-40 when starting, career rating 80.8 (and 84.7 this year)

    And given that Hoyer has been shunted around 6 teams and setups (7 if counting the Pats twice) and often had to start as backup, often on poor teams, his career record compares well to Bortles.
    Just sayin.

    He has owned just about everyone but Eli and the Giants…
    —————————–
    Despite the “kryptonite” nonsense Brady actually has a winning record (4-3) against Eli’s Giants, winning the last two.

  4. It’s interesting trivia, but that’s all it is.

    As a Pat’s fan I have no issue openly admitting I wanted to see ANY other AFC playoff team other than the Jag’s in the AFCCG.

  5. The Jags defense is good but not great, great defenses don’t give up a lot of points, especially in a playoff game.

    2. Jags 16.8 points per game
    4. Philly 18.4 points per game
    5. Patriots 18.5 points per game.

    (Rams were 3rd 17.6 ppg for those curious of the missing #)

    So you don’t think the bears defense wasn’t better with Brigs, Urlacher and Tillman? Really?….. Really..

    Then you think wrong, the answer is yes.
    BTW, in the words of The Hoodie “Stats are for losers. The only numbers that matter are the big ones on the board at the end of the game.”

  9. Brian Hoyer will play this game. I would say roughly four minutes at the end of the fourth quarter in mop up duty. Pats 38 and the Jags 10,

  10. Here’s a better stat. When Brady plays a team that wasn’t expected to advance and Belicheat only has one week to prepare for (i.e.,SPY ON) the team that unexpectedly advanced, NE loses. The only exception was Indy and we all know what happened there.

  11. Here’s a better stat. When Brady plays a team that wasn’t expected to advance and Belicheat only has one week to prepare for (i.e.,SPY ON that team, NE loses. I think the only exception is when Brady was deflating balls to beat Indy.

  12. The 85′ Bears allowed 10 points against, IN 3 PLAYOFF GAMES COMBINED.

    They are the standard and the Jags don’t even compare.
