You can tell that Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots meant a lot to former LSU running back Leonard Fournette.
After the game, while hugging former LSU Tiger Ricky Jean Francois, Fournette was in tears on the sideline.

Fournette still had a wonderful rookie season, rushing for more than 1,000 yards and had a strong set of playoff games. Fournette tied the rookie record for rushing touchdowns in the playoffs with 4, further evidence that he’s lived up to the hype as the No. 4 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The former Tiger had 76 rushing yards and a touchdown and did a great job in pass protection. With a number of young great players, led by Fournette, this most likely won’t be his last AFC Championship Game. And Sunday showed this Jacksonville team isn’t too far away from a potential Super Bowl.
The 2018 Super Bowl will be played Feb. 4 in Minneapolis.
