One spot in the AFC Championship has already been claimed and the second spot will be up for grabs on Sunday when the Patriots host the Chargers in a divisional playoff game. That game was also at Gillette Stadium, losing by the score of 21-12.

At first, longtime WCVB meteorologist Harvey Leonard said he was "honored" to have been included in wide receiver Julian Edelman's hype video for Sunday's AFC divisional-round game between the Patriots and Los Angeles Chargers.

In a typical season, this would be a lock for the Patriots.

Mauro Icardi blasts rumours that he will change his agent
Although she doesn't mention any clubs by name, it's not too hard to infer which clubs Icardi's agent is talking about. Former Inter Milan striker Adriano revealed that he would love to have played alongside Icardi .

"While he's feeling physically good going into today's game against the Los Angeles Chargers, those who know him well say the season has taken an emotional toll on him", Rapoport wrote Sunday morning. The Patriots allowed 4.9 rushing yards per play during the regular season, tied for third worst in the National Football League, which helps the case for Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. "Perhaps strongly considering retiring a year ago put him in a place where it was hard to get fired up for this season".

One of those streaks is going to end on Sunday and the victor will be earning a trip to Kansas City, where they'll face the Chiefs in the AFC title game.
