Patriots' AFC Championship Game hosting hopes dashed by Colts' stinker

14 January 2019

NFC and AFC champions will face off in the Super Bowl in Atlanta on February 3.

The No. 6 seed Colts fell 31-13 to No. 1 seed Kansas City in their AFC Divisional Round matchup Saturday, ensuring the victor of Patriots-Chargers on Sunday will have to visit Arrowhead Stadium next weekend in the Chiefs' first home AFC Championship Game in franchise history.

Brees, the most valuable player in the Super Bowl XLIV triumph, shook off an early interception to throw for 301 yards and two touchdowns.

In the divisional round of the National Football League playoffs, the best teams took over.

The total playoff bonuses for each player after a Super Bowl win amounts to roughly $200,000. New England is 19-3 at home in the playoffs under Bill Belichick while the Chargers haven't made it past the Divisional Round since the 2007 season. Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson each had 100 yards rushing as the Rams pounded Dallas 30-22.

On the meeting with the Chiefs, Brady added: "It's that time of year".

The teaser, 1 minute and 29 seconds long, shows the underground crypt of Winterfell, with the Stark siblings walking through it. A variety of tidbits have been revealed , including that there will be six super-sized episodes, perhaps as long as movies.

This season's AFC decider will be a rematch of a wild week-six game in Foxborough that the Patriots won 43-40 on a 28-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski as time expired.

Lattimore, however, sealed the win with his second intercept and the Saints booked an NFC Championship game next weekend in New Orleans with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Chiefs also got plenty of help from running back Damien Williams who tore through the Colts defense for 129 yards.

Looking on next Sunday is expected to be a Good Samaritan named Dave who helped Chiefs guard Jeff Allen free his vehicle from snow before Saturday's win over Indianapolis.

Allen neglected to obtain Dave's contact information and took to Twitter on Sunday in search for his last name.
