Philip Rivers Rips Into Patriots Dynasty Ahead Of AFC Divisional Matchup

010119_BALWCW_CMS

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.

Luck put on a show in his hometown in a stadium where he'd attended games throughout childhood and played in them since high school, throwing for 191 yards and two touchdowns before halftime to help the Colts (11-6) build a 21-0 lead.

The Ravens are 1-8 all-time against the Patriots in the regular season but are 2-2 in the postseason, including a comeback win in Foxborough on their way to the Super Bowl championship six years ago.

— Tavon Austin, Seahawks, returned five punts for 73 yards, including one for 51, in Seattle's 24-22 loss at Dallas. So to get an opportunity again to go against them 11 years after we had that opportunity in the 2007 season, yeah, it's awesome.

Through the first half of the season, it looked like Cleveland's ignominious history would repeat. Then they fired coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley, and things started to flip. There's certainly a case to be made that this was the quarterback's worst game of the 2018 season, but was also his first real action since a torn ACL previous year. They officially went over 6 wins with a 26-18 victory over the Bengals in week 16. "Me and this whole team, we want to win it all".

"It's a Bill Belichick led team and defence that we know".

It was the eighth win in nine games for the Cowboys.

Badgley set a franchise record for field goals in a playoff game.

A number of offshore sports books post odds on every potential Super Bowl matchup. It'll be a tall task for them to go into Arrowhead and beat the No. 1 seeded Chiefs, but if they do, they would give the Patriots an opportunity to host them in the AFC Championship Game.

Ezekiel Elliott ran for 137 yards and a touchdown for Dallas as the Cowboys advanced to a second-round National Football Conference playoff game next weekend against either top seed New Orleans, or the second-seeded Los Angeles Rams.

Expect them to get revenge against the Saints, before the Chiefs return the favor on February 3 in Atlanta.
