FOXBOROUGH, MA (WBZ-AM/AP) -- The New England Patriots have won the AFC Championship and are heading to Superbowl LII.

They won against The Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in a nail-biting finish.

After trailing by 10 points early in the fourth quarter, the Patriots cut it to three on Tom Brady's 9-yard pass to Danny Amendola and then went ahead on a 4-yard throw to Amendola in the back of the end zone with just under 3 minutes left. Amendola also had a 20-yard punt return that allowed New England to start the go-ahead drive at the Jaguars' 30.

Then, Dion Lewis blocked and gained 18-yards of valuable real estate on the field.

The Patriots have won the last three playoff games they've trailed by double-digits in, including a 25-point deficit they erased in last year's Super Bowl.
