Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 137 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter in a 24-22 wild-card win for the Cowboys (11-6) over Seattle. There's certainly a case to be made that this was the quarterback's worst game of the 2018 season, but was also his first real action since a torn ACL past year. During the regular season, they scored 26.8 points per game (6th best in NFL), while allowing 20.6 points per game (8th best in the NFL). It certainly will be a battle, as the Chargers finished the season with a 12-4 record, while New England finished the campaign a flawless 8-0 at Gillette Stadium. He connected from 21, 53, 40, 34 and 47 yards.

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. Just before the end of the second quarter, Dallas managed the first Touchdown of the game - followed by a successful additional attempt to the 10:8.

The Colts' season looked all but done after starting 1-5 but have since won 10 of their last 11 behind the excellent play of quarterback Andrew Luck, including a 21-7 victory over the Houston Texans on Saturday. It's daunting that their path to the Super Bowl would likely feature a trip to New Orleans, but Los Angeles played better than perceived in a 45-35 loss in the Superdome earlier in the year. Punter Michael Dickson's drop kick was caught by Cole Beasley at the Dallas 31, sealing the first playoff win for the Cowboys since beating Detroit in the wild-card round in the 2014 season. The Elias Sports Bureau said it was the longest streak in National Football League history.

— Dak Prescott, Cowboys, was 22 of 33 for 226 yards and a TD with an INT and also ran for 29 yards and a score in Dallas' 24-22 win over Seattle. However, the Kansas City Chiefs and Chargers were stuck in a log-jammed AFC West.

It will be the first meeting this season between the Chiefs and Colts.

Rivers' record against the Patriots during his career is a bleak 1-7, including two playoff losses (2007 divisional round, 2008 AFC Championship).
