It's clear Sunday's Patriots-Jaguars game isn't just a typical Week 2 game, as it is a rematch of the AFC championship game last year, but down in Jacksonville they have taken it to an entire new level.

“It’s definitely the most important game of my life,” Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack told reporters.

He added: “The magnitude of the game … we want to go 2-0 on the season. We feel like we’re going to be in the playoffs, so we want so to gain homefield advantage. We feel like if we can get a win on them, that would be huge … the most important week of my life, for sure.”

After blowing a 10-point fourth quarter lead in the AFC title game, the Jaguars are very focused on the task at hand, including containing Tom Brady and the Patriots offense.

“We are just locked in,” cornerback A.J. Bouye said. “I was talking to Telvin [Smith] about it, just the way we're preparing, even off the field. We know what their quarterback is doing. We know how to prepare out there.  We're trying to be that much harder on preparing, with film, on the field, off the field, so we're definitely locked in. We're looking forward to it. It is going to be a great game and great matchups and we're ready to step up."

While the Patriots have played in just a couple of bigger games, Sunday's meeting in Jacksonville should still be a good one.
