The Jaguars are headed to Missouri to play in the NFL’s divisional championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Saturday, January 21st at 4:15 p.m. inside GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. The team recently won their wild card game against the Los Angeles Chargers, defeating the Chargers (30) versus Jaguars (31). The last minute win (literally) was one of the biggest upsets in NFL history. In the first half the Jaguars were down 27- 7, by the fourth quarter the team kicked the winning field goal to win the game. Fans viewing the game in the stands became quiet; some fans left the stadium, while TV watchers turned off the game to tune back in for the win! During the after game press conference, Coach Pederson was asked about his strategy to win the game after the half time deficit.
“Our strategy was one play at a time, we knew the defense would start the second half and if we could regroup and make sure we score every time we touch the ball,” said Coach Pederson.
More than 70k fans braved the record cold temperature to root for the Jaguars as they fought for a chance to play in the 57th National Football League (NFL) Superbowl, in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 12, at 6:30 p.m. ETS at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
