The home finale at EverBank Field has gone nothing like the expected result in the first half, although it was a similar start to the games against the Packers and Texans when the Jaguars were similar underdogs. However, a late touchdown drive by the Patriots erased the Jaguars early lead and left the teams tied at halftime.

Despite a strong start from the offense that featured a franchise-record 202 yards of offense in the first quarter, the Jaguars were unable to find the end zone after scoring on their opening drive, instead settling for three field goals attempts and a punt on a short fourth down near midfield.

While the Patriots struggled to get much offense going, including two first quarter interceptions from Tom Brady and somewhat consistent pressure from Jason Babin and Jeremy Mincey, the repeated opportunities gave them a chance to tie with a late touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Danny Woodhead.

At half, Chad Henne has completed 15-of-24 passes for 210 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. Brady completed 14-of-24 for 162 with a touchdown and two interceptions. Henne has a 104.5 rating and Brady has 58.0.
