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

There was a scenario in which the New England Patriots (or the Los Angeles Chargers) could have hosted the AFC Championship Game next Sunday. The better seed and home team won all four games.

The Patriots, under Brady and coach Bill Belichick, will be playing in their eighth consecutive AFC Championship game.

The total playoff bonuses for each player after a Super Bowl win amounts to roughly $200,000. It has been 17 years since the Rams' last Super Bowl appearance, when they lost to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI.

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.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport shared the image on Sunday morning - hours before the Saints' game against the Eagles.

The Rams beat the Cowboys by running the ball. The second game is a regular-season rematch of a contest that ended up being a 41-point blowout.

The NFC second seed, the Rams will be seeking their fourth conference title but a first since moving back to Los Angeles from St. Louis in 2016. Brady finished 34 of 44 for 343 yards and a touchdown.

Comeback kings the New Orleans Saints are hoping a return to the NFC title game next weekend will be a lucky charm.

The two locked up in a shootout in October with the Patriots winning a 43-40 thriller when Stephen Gostkowski hit a 28-yard field goal as time expired. The teams combined for 946 yards.

"They are a great team". The Chiefs blew out the Indianapolis Colts 31-13, with their defense having a surprisingly dominant day.

Sunday's action kicks off with the Los Angeles Chargers looking for a second straight road win in these playoffs.

The starkest contrast between the two franchises is this: The Chiefs haven't played in a Super Bowl since January 11, 1970, while the Patriots have played in three of the last four Super Bowls.
