Tom Brady (thumb) playing in AFC title game vs. Jaguars

As if there were any doubt, Tom Brady is going to play in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The five-time world champion has played in six conference title games in a row. A thumb injury suffered earlier in the week isn’t going to keep him from participating in the seventh, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Brady is officially active.

Brady was wearing a strip of black tape on his right hand and a white glove on his left hand during pregame warmups. He wasn’t wearing a glove on his right hand.

Speaking to Westwood One’s Jim Gray in an interview that aired Sunday, Brady was asked whether he can grip the ball and if he felt he could throw accurately.

Brady hopes to play without a glove on his throwing hand, although that will hinge on the weather, per Rapoport. Temperatures in the 30s might necessitate a glove. The forecast in Foxborough at kickoff is 48 degrees and partly sunny, according to accuweather.com.

That might be warm enough for Brady to ditch the glove.

Also for the Patriots, Burkhead (knee) did not suffer any setbacks this week and will play. Running back Mike Gillislee (knee) is inactive, as are right tackle La’Adrian Waddle (knee) and defensive lineman Alan Branch (knee).

It feels good, Harrison told NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones after the Patriots’ 24-20 victory over the Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. That’s the goal every year — to go to the Super Bowl and win it. We’re one step away.

Harrison made an impact against the Jaguars, particularly against the running game. He recorded three tackles and continued to prove he can still be a worthwhile contributor even at age 39. Harrison said the team got better against the Jaguars as the game progressed.

I don’t think we [played] too well in the first half, Harrison said. We did a better job in the second half. The offense came alive, the defense came alive and we were able to work together and get it done.

Eighth-grader Jaden Newman makes 17 3-pointers in a 70-point game to tie national record

When you think 3-point shooting prowess, you probably think of Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson or Jayson Tatum. Time to add Jaden Newman to the list. The 13-year-old basketball prodigy and star guard at Downey Christian (Orlando, Florida) made 17 of her 24 attempts from beyond the arc on Tuesday to tie a national high school record.

According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, Newman is tied with Duke senior Rebecca Greenwell for the most 3-pointers in a single game. Greenwell also hit 17 in 2013 while playing for Kentucky’s Owensboro Catholic.

Newman, who is averaging 45.7 points per game this season and hopes to play at UConn, was happy about her performance, but thinks she can do even better.

I want us to keep winning, and I really want to break the record with 18 3s, Newman said. Maybe next week in our next game.

Doyle’s jumper with 2:53 to play capped a 9-0 run and gave Iowa its last lead, 67-66. Bell followed with two free throws. Doyle’s 3 with 19 seconds left made it a one-point game but Bell and Wagner secured the win from the line in the last nine seconds.

Iowa finished 2 of 14 from 3-point range and is now 5 of 47 during the losing streak.

Vrabel noted the fear in which his Texans defense approached a dual-threat like Mariota last season, noting one big touchdown run the Titans quarterback pulled off.

We were scared to death, the new Titans coach said. He pulled a football on Jadeveon Clowney and ran 40 yards. Thank god he pulled his hamstring running 40 yards. That game wouldn’t have been what it was that day in Houston. He’s a special talent, a special kid, and I can’t wait to work with him and help him through taking that next step in his career. But you get a quarterback that pulls it on J.D., you better have some cojones because J.D. normally swallows those guys up.

Brewers reportedly make offer to free-agent ace Yu Darvish

Darvish was acquired by the Dodgers from Texas for three prospects just before last year’s trade deadline, supposedly the final piece needed to return a championship to baseball’s biggest-spending team.

But the 6-foot-5 right-hander only managed four outs in losing Game 7 to the Astros, becoming the second pitcher in World Series history with less than two innings pitched in two starts.

Darvish signed with Texas before the 2012 season and missed all of 2015 after elbow surgery. In 31 combined starts last season, he was 10-12 with a 3.86 ERA.

Wall fired the first shot when asked about the barking between the two, which resulted in Barea being whistled for a technical foul with 7:42 remaining in the game.

Just a little midget trying to get mad, Wall said. I don’t pay him no mind.

Barea, a 12-year veteran who is very generously listed at 6 feet, raised his eyebrows when Wall’s comment was relayed to him. Barea said Wall’s comment was funny before firing back.

Now I have somebody in the NBA that I don’t like, Barea said. That’s my first. I don’t like him at all now. But I don’t think his teammates like him, either. So it’s nothing new for him.

Duensing, a 34-year-old left-hander, went 1-1 with a 2.74 ERA in 68 relief outings for the Cubs last season. He pitched his first seven seasons for Minnesota and spent much of the 2016 season in the minors before earning a late-season promotion to Baltimore. He then joined the Cubs after their 2016 World Series title.

For his career, Duensing is 43-38 with a 4.01 ERA in 436 appearances, 375 of which have come in relief.

Duensing was drafted in the third round by Minnesota in 2005 and made his major league debut in 2009.
