Jacksonville Jaguars players defend Jalen Ramsey’s Super Bowl guarantee - BigCatCountry.com
The Jacksonville Jaguars spent a week fuming over what they believed was a sign of disrespect by Pittsburgh Steelers players looking ahead to the AFC Championship Game beyond their divisional-round contest.
Now one of them may have provided some bulletin board material for the New England Patriots after cornerback Jalen Ramsey guaranteed a victory over the Patriots in Gillette Stadium on Sunday while speaking to thousands of fans at EverBank Field who had gathered to welcome the team home after their 45-42 victory over the Steelers.
They’re tired of your jokes. They’re sick of you looking past them and onto the next game. They’re not gonna take you insulting their quarterback anymore.
They’re 60 minutes away from the Super Bowl and unless you’re on one of three other teams in the entire league you can’t say that.

It was inevitable, it had seemed, that the AFC’s spot in the Super Bowl would be determined by a rematch next weekend between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots. They met in last season’s AFC championship game. When they played last month in Pittsburgh, the No. 1 seed in the playoffs and home-field advantage for their expected return engagement appeared at stake. There was talk in the Steelers’ locker room that day that they’d see the Patriots again this season with the stakes raised.
