Things are finally breaking right for the Chargers and just when that's happening, here comes the dagger of Los Angeles potentially having to play in a nightmare, east coast weather game against the Patriots on Sunday.

After the Seahawks took the lead late in the third quarter, Prescott guided a nine-play, 67-yard drive that culminated in a 1-yard Elliott touchdown run to give Dallas a 17-14 lead.

Dak Prescott rallied the Dallas Cowboys to an National Football League playoff victory over Seattle on Saturday, while Andrew Luck powered the Indianapolis Colts into the second round with a victory at Houston. Rivers' only win against New England came in 2008 against Matt Cassel. The two teams split the season series with each game decided by just three points, so there's plenty of intriguing surrounding the opening game of the wild-card round. They've had a number of impressive road wins this season and actually had a more successful regular season than New England.

The playoff win by the Cowboys (11-6) was the first for Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott on their second try after losing a divisional game as rookies two years ago.


Next up for the Eagles is a trip to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, while the Dallas Cowboys will visit the LA Rams on Saturday in the other NFC game. Anything can happen in January, as evidenced by the last time two of these teams - the Cowboys and Seahawks - met in the playoffs all the way back in 2006.

— Marlon Mack, Colts, ran for 148 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries to help Indianapolis top Houston 21-7.

Brett Maher kicked a 39-yard field goal for Dallas and Sebastian Janikowski answered for Seattle from 27 and 42 yards, but hurt his left leg on a 57-yard miss to end the first half, forcing the Seahawks to chase touchdowns and two-point conversions in the second half. Whether this be, who knows how many, Brady's 40th, 38th, something playoff game? The Browns were bound to fall under their win total for the 10 time in 11 seasons after starting 2-6-1. Towards the end of the season, the Chargers were arguably more deserving of the AFC West title than the Kansas City Chiefs were.
