7 days ago   |   By NESN

FOXBORO - The Los Angeles Chargers are no stranger to the two teams meeting in this season's AFC Championship Game.

NFL Playoffs 2019: Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams advance to Championship games

7 days ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs will be at home for next Sunday's AFC Championship game, which could bring together the best quarterback in the NFL this year against one of the best of all time.

The result ended a six-game home losing playoff streak by the AFC's number one seed, and moved the team within one win of making it to the Super Bowl for only the third...

We played them earlier this year. I know everyone thinks...
