The Jaguars are the only AFC team never to beat Tom Brady.

Jacksonville safety Tashaun Gipson was made aware of this by reporters Wednesday in Jacksonville.

"Yet," Gipson responded.

"0-and-8 all-time," a reporter said.

"So, 1-of 9," Gibson answered.

Based on that exchange, it is pretty clear Gipson is very confident going into Sunday's rematch of last year's AFC title game.

“We feel like we can play with anybody. We feel like we match up well with them,” he said. “I think that when you look at from an athletic standpoint, we are definitely more superior, athletically gifted when it comes to the defensive side of the ball compared to the guy that they have.”

Gipson added: “Our D-line is second to none. You look at our linebackers, they’re second to none. Our secondary is the best. So we feel like no matter what coverage we run, we will be able to apply pressure. We feel like we can play with anybody. The Patriots coming here, they’re coming into our house. I would say that they are more worried about the Jaguars this year.”

Sunday afternoon at 4:25 should be pretty interesting.
