James Harrison and the New England Patriots advanced to the AFC title game on Saturday night, but don’t expect the veteran defender to scout his opponent for the game on Sunday.

The longtime Pittsburgh Steeler told Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports after the win over the Tennessee Titans that he won’t be watching his former team play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon, instead opting for the Cartoon Network.

Harrison joined the Patriots on Dec. 26th, just one day after being cut by the Steelers following a disappointing season. He immediately registered two sacks in his first game with his new team, making his impact felt throughout the contest. That continued with three tackles in Saturday’s win over Tennessee.

If the Steelers win on Sunday afternoon, expect the story of Harrison facing his former team to get a great deal of attention. Just don’t expect the 39-year-old to hop on board, as he says he might not even know who the Patriots’ opponent will be until he shows up for work on Monday.
