"We just had to find our rhythm", said Brees, whose team finally took the lead at 17-14 on a two-yard pass from the quarterback to Michael Thomas late in the third quarter.

Indy entered with designs of an upset, having won 10 of its last 11 games and upsetting the No. 3 seed Houston Texans in the AFC Wild Card round.

There was a scenario in which the New England Patriots (or the Los Angeles Chargers) could have hosted the AFC Championship Game next Sunday. It is the 13th conference championship game appearance by the Patriots during the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era.

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

Looking on next Sunday is expected to be a Good Samaritan named Dave who helped Chiefs guard Jeff Allen free his auto from snow before Saturday's win over Indianapolis. However, facing rookie Lamar Jackson and five-time Super Bowl victor Tom Brady are two entirely different challenges, even if Brady is not playing at an MVP level right now. New Orleans fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter, but then shut out the Eagles after that, winning 20-14.

The Rams beat the Cowboys by running the ball. Los Angeles ran for 273 yards, by far the most rushing yards Dallas allowed all season.

The two teams faced each other in the regular season. The Rams came back, tying the game 35-35 in the fourth quarter.

The Patriots and Chiefs met in one of the best games of this National Football League regular season.

On Oct. 14, the Patriots beat the Chiefs 43-40 with a field goal as time expired.

"They are a great team".

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