The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs kicks off Saturday with what could be the highest scoring game of the weekend when the Indianapolis Colts visit the Kansas City Chiefs.

Andrew Luck and the Colts have gone 10-1 in their last 11 games while the Chiefs lost two of their final three games to end the season before locking up the top overall seed in the AFC and securing home-field advantage. The Chargers are riding a seven-game road winning streak - covering the spread each time. In short, the Chargers have been hosting home games in Dignity Health Sports Park, a stadium that was built for soccer. It is considered unfeasible for the L.A. Coliseum to host both games on the same day.

"Playing a game of that magnitude in a stadium that small is a big issue to a lot of people around here", a source told La Canfora.

In the NFC, the New Orleans Saints (13-3) are hoping to get back to the conference championship game for the first time since they won the Super Bowl nine years ago. "There isn't any plan in place to move it now that I am aware of, but there was a lot of talk about that when it looked like the Chargers might win the division".

The league has had internal discussions about the possibility of playing Sunday night and Monday night championship games at the L.A. Coliseum if both the Rams and the Chargers host the championship games, according to La Canfora. "I would expect there to be conversations about that through the weekend as things happen".
