FOXBORO -- The Patriots will play the winner of Sunday's Jaguars-Steelers in the AFC championship game at Gillette Stadium on Jan. 21.

It's likely many Patriots players and coaches will watch the game to find out who their next opponent will be, but not James Harrison.

“I won’t, no," Harrison said after the Patriots' win on Saturday. "I don’t even know what time they are playing.”

“I don’t even watch sports," he added. "I am a cartoon guy. Ask me something about Cartoon Network.”

So, how will he find out who the Patriots will be playing?

“We come in and work on Monday. I’ll find out then," Harrison said.

Harrison had three tackles in the Patriots' 35-14 win over the Titans Saturday night, which was his second game as a member of the team. The outside linebacker said he's still adjusting to life in New England.

"That’s like asking somebody if they just learned the defense two weeks ago," he said. "It's not going to happen. That’s like, not even minicamp, it's like coming into OTAs and Day 2, do you know everything Day 2? No. Stop asking me that question."

If the Steelers win on Sunday, it would set up a Patriots-Steelers AFC title game for the second straight season and Harrison facing the team he spent 13 seasons with and endless storylines next week.
