Patriots to host Colts in AFC divsional round


With the San Diego Chargers upset of the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the New England Patriots AFC divisional round opponent is now clear. They will play host to the Indianapolis Colts next Saturday at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15pm.

The Colts made a stunning comeback in their 45-44 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday. It was the 2nd-largest playoff comeback ever.

This showdown will feature a match up of two of the most prolific signal-callers in the NFL. Tom Brady boasts 17 playoff wins while Andrew Luck is looking to build a legacy of his own.

The Patriots blew out the Colts in a 2012 meeting, 59-24.

The Chargers will travel to Denver to square off with the Broncos in the other AFC divisional game.
