FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - No coach has more post-season wins than Bill Belichick. No quarterback has been to more Super Bowls than Tom Brady.And these New England Patriots are so much more than that dynamic duo, as the overwhelmed Indianapolis Colts learned.Belichick and Brady earned their sixth trip to the big game — and Belichick got his 21st post-season win — with the second-most lopsided AFC championship ever, 45-7 before a raucous, rain-soaked crowd Sunday night.I only have one thing to say. Were on to Seattle, Belichick said, adapting the rallying cry he repeated, Were on to Cincinnati, after a loss at Kansas City dropped the Patriots to 2-2.The Patriots (14-4) will face the defending champion Seahawks (14-4) for the NFL title on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Arizona. The stoic Belichick will match wits with the enthusiastic Pete Carroll, whom he replaced as Patriots coach 2000. The Seahawks beat the Green Bay Packers 28-22 in overtime in the NFC title game.Brady threw three touchdown passes, LeGarrette Blount ran 30 times for 148 yards and three scores and the Patriots scored touchdowns on four straight possessions after leading just 17-7 at halftime.I know weve had some ups and downs this year, Brady said, but right now were up, baby, and were going to try to stay up for one more game.Quarterback Andrew Luck and the Colts have a long wait for their next game. The No. 1 draft choice in 2012 had the worst performance of his career and the fourth rout in his four games against the Patriots, all by at least three touchdowns. He completed 12 of 33 passes for 126 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.Its hard to find much good (in the season) fresh off this game, Luck said. We had our sights set higher.In his first season as a starter in 2001, Brady led the Patriots to a Super Bowl win, starting a run of three championships in four years. Now he and Belichick have a chance for their first in 10 years.The list of milestones is long:__ Brady surpassed John Elway for most Super Bowls for a quarterback and tied defensive lineman Mike Lodish for most by any player.__ Belichick tied Don Shula for most Super Bowls for a coach and broke a tie with Tom Landry for post-season win.__ New England tied Dallas and Pittsburgh for most appearances in the big game with eight. Brady completed 23 of 35 passes for 226 yards before being replaced by Jimmy Garoppolo with 3:20 left. Brady went to the sideline where he was embraced by Belichick. Moments earlier, while sitting on the bench, Brady was shown on the video board with soaked hair. He pumped his fist in the air 12 times then slapped hands with teammates.One play after Luck threw an interception to Darrelle Revis late in the third quarter, Blount ran 13 yards for the touchdown that made it 38-7. One fan held up a sign: No Luck In Our HouseIts a very disappointing loss, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. Well learn from this. Well grow from this.Eight days after baffling Baltimore with a four-man offensive linemen formation, Belichick called a pass to left tackle Nate Solder that resulted in a 16-yard touchdown that made it 24-7 with just under five minutes gone in the third quarter.Weve been practicing that for years, Solder said. The stars were aligned.The Patriots kept rolling with touchdowns on each of their next three series — a 5-yard pass from Brady to Rob Gronkowski, and Blounts runs of 13 and 2 yards.He made some great cuts in not good conditions, Belichick said of Blount. Hes a tough guy to tackle.All that added up to a shot at another championship for the Patriots, who lost Super Bowls to the New York Giants in the 2007 and 2011 seasons.Turnovers led to two of the three touchdowns in the first half.Josh Cribbs fumbled a punt after the Patriots went three-and-out on their first possession andDarius Fleming recovered at the Colts 26. Six plays later, Blount scored on a 1-yard run.The Patriots took a 14-0 lead with just over a minute left in the first quarter on Bradys 1-yard pass to James Develin.The Patriots were driving again before Brady was picked off by DQwell Jackson. Luck marched the Colts 93 yards to a 1-yard touchdown run by Zurlon Tipton with 4:54 left in the half.Then the Colts defence came up with a big stand, forcing Brady into three straight incompletions from their 3. The Patriots settled for Stephen Gostkowskis 21-yard field goal nine seconds before intermission.And then the Patriots dominated. I never thought we would go out like this, Colts safety Mike Adams said. It definitely caught me off guard.Notes: Brady passed Peyton Manning (6,800 yards) for most yards passing in the post-season with 7,017. ... In four games against the Colts, Luck has thrown six touchdowns and 10 interceptions. ... Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri set an NFL record with his 30th post-season game, one more than Jerry Rice, but missed a 51-yard field goal attempt. ...

The Jaguars removed Blackmons name plate from atop his locker, the latest indication that the former first-round draft pick has no future with the franchise. The team placed rookie quarterback Stephen Morris from Miami in the stall. Blackmon is suspended without pay indefinitely for repeated violations of the leagues substance-abuse policy, and general manager Dave Caldwell indicated last week that he would consider cutting Blackmon when and if he gets reinstated. Owner Shad Khan weighed in after the teams state-of-the-franchise presentation Tuesday. "I think its an absolute tragedy," he said. "I have a hard time expressing. Im a parent myself. I met with his parents. I think hes such a talented guy, the best years ahead of him. But after a while, its out of your control." The Jaguars have expressed disappointment with not being in contact with Blackmon, and NFL rules limit contact coaches and front-office personnel can have with suspended players. "The league has rules. We have to follow them. And its simple as that," Khan said. "The league, the players association, theres a huge amount of resources. The only thing I can (say) is please take advantage of it. If youre a player, its like all of this stuff is being offered to you. Take advantage of it. I think NFL players are so lucky from the viewpoint all these resources that are available to him." Blackmon was suspended the first four games of last year for violating the substance-abuse policy. Hee played four games before getting suspended again — at least for a year.dddddddddddd The Jaguars had been hoping Blackmon would be eligible to return after eight games in 2014. But after losing contact with him, coach Gus Bradley said last week that "it doesnt sound like its going in the right direction. ... We cant count on him." Jacksonville drafted two receivers in the second round Friday to fill the void, selecting USCs Marqise Lee with the 39th overall pick and then adding Penn States Allen Robinson at No. 61. "Having those guys in that room will definitely help us get better on the field," fellow receiver Cecil Shorts III said. Blackmon has 93 catches for 1,280 yards and six scores in 20 games — all since Jacksonville traded up to select the former Oklahoma State star with the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft. His problems have been off the field. Blackmon was involved in three substance-related incidents in three years. He was arrested on a misdemeanour DUI charge in Texas in 2010 after officers caught him speeding on a suburban Dallas highway. The charge was later reduced to an underage alcohol possession charge. A little more than a month after the Jaguars drafted him, he was arrested during a traffic stop in Stillwater, Oklahoma, after a breath test allegedly showed his blood alcohol content to be three times the legal limit. A subsequent violation landed him the four-game suspension. Another one got him the indefinite suspension. Khan said the tough part is that Blackmon doesnt seem to want help. "Its frankly hard to understand," Khan said. ' ' '
