Not all that surprisingly, Tom Brady orchestrated a New England Patriots comeback to overcome a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter of their 24-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.
Among those not shocked: Jags cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who tried to warn his teammates that the quarterback was poised to lead a Patriots comeback.
NFL Films’ “Sound FX” picked up part of a sideline conversation with safety Tashaun Gipson midway through the second quarter.
“When they score, one thing we gotta do that we ain’t been doing well is keep going out there pressuring,” Ramsey said with his team up 14-3. “Keep putting that pressure on them. We get up and we let them come back, bro. We let them come back, bro … We let them.”
He reiterated his point later in the period, after the Patriots had scored their first touchdown with the aid of a 32-yard pass interference penalty to get them into the red zone.
“It’s us. It’s us,” Ramsey said. “Every time we let them, we’re not letting them today. That’s the facts, bro. We’re not letting them today, bro. Every time it happens we let them, bro. We gotta keep it real with ourselves, man. Every time it happens.”
Oh well, at least Ramsey was kind enough to include just enough profanity-free trash talk for NFL Films to be able to air it.
