Hitting the mark
With 506 points, the Patriots are guaranteed to average at least 30 per game during the regular season, even if they get shut out in their final two games. It marks the third straight year they’ll average more than 30 points a game, joining the Bears (1941-43) and Rams (1949-51, 1999-2001) as the only teams to hit that figure for three consecutive seasons . . . The Patriots have scored more points since the bye week (244 in six games) than the Jaguars (219) have scored all season . . . Three Patriots — Gronkowski at tight end, guard Logan Mankins, and linebacker Jerod Mayo — led the AFC Pro Bowl fan voting at their positions . . . Brady is 5-0 against the Jaguars, including 2-0 in the playoffs.
