Despite the Patriots being nine-point favorites on Sunday in the AFC title game, the team certainly isn't acting like it when speaking to the media.

But, according to Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith, even though the Patriots players are respecting them in the media, they aren't inside the Gillette Stadium facility.

On Tuesday, Smith quote-tweeted a ESPN graphic of Tom Brady calling the Jaguars the toughest team the Patriots will play all year on Kirk & Callahan and wrote: Bruh this the oldest trick...pump us up in the media but in the buildin I kno what’s really bein said.

Smith is in all likelihood wrong as Bill Belichick would never allow his team to disrespect any opponent, especially in the AFC championship game, and this goes against everything the Patriots believe in as an organization.
