BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Patriots are the heavy favorites to beat the Jaguars in Sunday's AFC Championship Game--but as WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Adam Kaufman reports, the teams have a deep mutual respect.
Patriots safety Duron Harmon called the Jaguars a "team that plays probably as physical as anybody in the league."
"It's a really good football team that's going to come here ready to play and ready to win," he said.
And Jags coach Doug Marrone said he really respects the Patriots--especially when in their house, as the Jags will be Sunday.
