On the latest episode of The Ex-Pats Podcast, Mike Giardi and Dan Koppen discuss the Patriots advancing to their seventh consecutive AFC Championship Game, and whether or not Jacksonville's defense can give the Pats problems.
Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette was involved in a three-car accident Tuesday, but the team and multiple other outlets are reporting the player was not injured.
According to WJCT in Jacksonville, Fournette was not at fault for the accident. He was reportedly rear-ended and then gave his bumper to one of the first responders.

The Jaguars will certainly hope their star rookie is healthy for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Patriots. Fournette suffered an ankle injury in the first half of Sunday's divisional round win over the Steelers but returned for the second half.
