Nickel Package: Field Yates and David Jacoby weigh in on the AFC Championship Game

Field Yates and David Jacoby weigh in on the Patriots' victory over the Jaguars in the AFC Championship, including the truth behind Jaguars' allergy to turnovers, the health of Rob Gronkowski, the play of Danny Amendola, the level of commitment from head coaching candidates Matt Patricia as well as Josh McDaniels and more.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Doug Pederson, like so many others, badly wants what the Patriots have had: "Everybody in the league sort of envies their success, and rightfully so. They've been there, done that many times. And that's something every other team would love to have. It's impressive. It's well-respected and well-documented. But we're just going to prepare the same and block out the noise as best we can."

The NFL's 2017 Iron Man team

Quarterbacks aren't supposed to be as good as Tom Brady is at 40. Couple that with an ability to stay on the field, and you have a Super Bowl-bound formula. Here are the players who have that perfect mix of high-level production and availability.

Tom Brady talked about getting the 12 stitches out of his hand in the coming days (via "Kirk and Callahan Show"): "Hopefully some time this week. And at that point, again, because I was fortunate not to tear any ligaments or anything like that - there was no broken bones - that was obviously the best news I could ever hear based on what you thought it could be. It ended up being a lot of good luck after, I'd say, a pretty unlucky injury. It turned out to be a lot good luck it wasn't more serious than it was."

Tom Brady detailed how right hand injury happened (via "Kirk and Callahan Show"): "We ran into each other and my thumb just got bent back. It wasn't his helmet or anything. It just kind of got bent back and that's why I thought it was a lot worse. The doctors checked it out and we did the things just to kind of check on everything. Fortunately there wasn't the damage that normally comes associated with that. I think we were very lucky."
