Greetings, Raider Nation! Welcome to the second and final day of the Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs. The Chefs and Rams won yesterday, but will the home teams sweep again today?

The Saints host the defending champion Eagles later today, but first up we have the Chargers in Foxboro to take on the 2-seed Patriots, who once again cruised to an easy division crown. Having two of the worst teams in their division pays dividends once again for New England as the Pats have yet to lose a home game this year, though Tom Brady is having a down year statistically. Can the Chargers make him look mortal today?

Conversely, Philip Rivers is having one of his best seasons as a pro. Utilizing his many weapons, including WRs Mike Williams and Keenan Allen, Rivers has shredded the AFC and is one of, if not the best quarterback in the league to never make a Super Bowl. He just has to win two games on the road to change all that. And frankly, of the teams remaining, I’d prefer he did so.

This game can be seen at 10 AM Pacific on CBS. Enjoy the game!
