Tom Brady weighs in on the Patriots-Chargers matchup

For the night game, we shift over to the NFC where Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks head to Jerry's World and play America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys.

- Michael Badgley, Chargers, kicked franchise playoff-record five field goals - connecting from 21, 53, 40, 34 and 47 yards - to help lead Los Angeles past Baltimore 23-17.

In the AFC, we have an intriguing match-up between the Indianapolis Colts who, with the return of Andrew Luck under center, have returned to the playoffs.

In the quarter-finals, the Cowboys are fighting next weekend against either the New Orleans Saints or the Los Angeles Rams in the first Playoff semi-final since 1995. Seattle's 24-22 loss at Dallas ended a run of nine straight victories in playoff openers. He had several drop-kicks during the season, as recently as Week 16 when Janikowski left with an injury but returned to the game. They did it behind Mahomes, who broke out with one of the best seasons in National Football League history for a first-year starter with 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns. Carolina's Kuechly, Seattle's Bobby Wagner and Indianapolis' Darius Leonard received the first-team nods at the position based on a vote of a national panel of 50 media members.

Tadd Haislop: We know - the Patriots have not lost at home this season, and if history is going to repeat itself, the fact that New England earned a first-round bye means it is unlikely to lose before Super Bowl 53. Since the lowest remaining seed will immediately face the No. 1 seed, this would leave Houston set for a date with Tom Brady and the Patriots regardless of the other outcome. He also has two interceptions and six pass breakups.

The Colts, who opened the season 1-5, continued an impressive run by winning their fifth consecutive game and for the 10th time in 11 games.

The Patriots will host the Chargers at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and New England fans have every reason to be confident in their team's chances of reaching an eighth consecutive AFC Championship Game.
