The Jacksonville Jaguars have a date with the New England Patriots next Sunday in the AFC championship game.
After the Jaguars’ 45-42 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field yesterday afternoon, Jalen Ramsey and his teammates returned to EverBank Field in Jacksonville where they were greeted by fans at a post-game rally.
That’s when the second-year star defensive back made his bold prediction.
"We goin' to the Super Bowl. AND we gon' win that b—h"

Ramsey, who was selected to his first Pro Bowl this season and was a first-team All-Pro, is fully aware that his Super Bowl guarantee is absolutely meaningless if he and his teammates don’t go out there next Sunday with that same energy they did against Pittsburgh.
However, nobody has rallied under the role underdog this season like the Jaguars. Their quarterback has been at the top of many jokes all season. Even in victories, the offense of the Jaguars gets no love.
The Jaguars have all the tools to make the New England Patriots and Most’s importantly Tom Brady feel very uncomfortable come Sunday afternoon.
Keep in mind, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had just tagged them for 469 passing yards and five touchdowns while holding a 110.5 passer rating on Sunday afternoon. Although Ramsey is quite confident that the Jaguars can get the job done, it will be foolish to overlook the defending champions, who now have extra bulletin board material with his latest comments.
