The New England Patriots and the Jacksonville Jaguars are gearing up to have one of the most unlikely AFC Championship Games in recent memory on Sunday. (Well, one-half very unexpected, anyway.)

CBS, the network running the game, knows that pretty much everyone in the NFL-loving world is going to be watching this game, which is one of the few fun and/or interesting things to happen in this whole miserable season. Their first order of business was to get the legendary John Malkovich to talk up the game, which was neat, but as it turns out, that was just the appetizer.

Yes, CBS somehow managed to tap Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson into hyping this game, and the Rock did what he does best: just cut a big old-fashioned Rock wrestling promo to hype up his buddy Tom Brady and the unlikely-as-hell Jaguars. He even manages to squeeze in most of his catchphrases, but somehow entirely avoids saying the word “Bortles.” YOU HAD ONE JOB, ROCK.
