NFL Considering Moving AFC Title Game If Chargers Host It

That January week off is coveted for a variety of reasons. Now the Eagles are in the hands of Nick Foles who rallied the team to their Super Bowl win a year ago.

You can stream the game online via FOX Sports Go. We caught up with CBS Boston sports anchor Steve Burton to get his insights on the matchups.

"You could feel the energy all week", Reid said.

Well, all that bulletin-board material can be thrown out the window after what we witnessed on Saturday night in Los Angeles. The way Whitworth and his linemen manhandled Dallas (11-7) at the line of scrimmage was remarkable indeed: The Rams dominated on the ground from the opening drive to C.J. Anderson's 1-yard TD plunge on fourth-and-goal with 7:16 to play.

The other matchups are AFC top seed Kansas City (12-4) hosting Indianapolis (11-6 after beating Houston) to open things. There's a chance the Chargers could host the AFC Championship game next week if they defeat the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Kansas City Chiefs. Are the Chiefs, Patriots or Saints in need of some WD-40? As for KC, the Chiefs are well-rested coming off their bye. "We're locked in now".

Depending on your market, you can also find a Kanas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts live stream if you're a YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, or PlayStation Vue subscriber.

With persistent snow turning Arrowhead Stadium into a winter wonderland, the Chiefs (13-4) waltzed all over a Colts defense that almost shut out the Texans a week ago. "We knew we were going up against a very good team, a very well-coached team". That could be a key because the Chiefs' defense is one-dimensional, with a strong pass rush but otherwise plenty of holes.

Mahomes was drafted by the Chiefs in 2017 following his junior year at Texas Tech when he completed 65.7 percent of his passes for 5,052 yards and 41 touchdowns.

Brees finished 2018 playing some of the most efficient football of his career, recording 3,992 passing yards, 32 passing touchdowns and only 5 interceptions. Luck, Mahomes and Brees are all studs under center.

While Anderson and Gurley ran wild, National Football League rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott managed just 47 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Amari Cooper was acquired in a trade with Oakland, one game before the surge to a second NFC East title in three seasons with Prescott and Elliott.

The Eagles have won six straight games as underdogs. QB Nick Foles has another comeback going, but I am not sure if it will continue.

That's the most ever allowed in the postseason by the five-time Super Bowl champion Cowboys, who were playing in their NFL-record 63rd postseason game.

The Cowboys get a much better match-up in Los Angeles, where the Cowboys faithful will likely hold their own against the Rams fans in terms of attendance.

"I thought coach Kromer and the offensive line and our offensive coaching staff just getting a great gameplay together and then, ultimately, the players executing was special", McVay said, referring to run game coordinator/offensive line coach Aaron Kromer. Elliott won the rushing title for the second time in three years, but Gurley was sidelined late in the schedule by a knee injury.
