Philip Rivers and the Los Angles Chargers don't have time to relax after their 23-17 win in the wild card round against the Baltimore Ravens.

Two things have been essential to the New England Patriots being the best National Football League team over the last two decades - a bye week and home-field advantage.

Elliott paired with quarterback Dak Prescott to make some dazzling and crucial plays, allowing the Cowboys' defense to the do rest in handing the Seahawks their first opening-round defeat in their previous 10 appearances.

The NFL playoffs kick continue Sunday with the remaining Wild Card round games. Philadelphia's Zach Ertz set a single-season record for tight ends with 116 catches. Gordon had a pair of 100-yard games and totaled 40 catches for 720 yards and three touchdowns - all covering 24 or more yards. He had several drop-kicks during the season, as recently as Week 16 when Janikowski left with an injury but returned to the game. The Rams (13-3) boast one of the NFL's best offences with Jared Goff and Todd Gurley running coach Sean McVay's innovative schemes to perfection for long stretches of the franchise's best regular season since 2001.

No team has repeated as Super Bowl champion since New England in 2004, and the Eagles are a sixth seed. Still an incredibly young team, I don't think anyone expected the Colts to be in the playoffs this season, but here they are about to face a very talented Houston Texans team, led by the surging Deshaun Watson and a dominant defense. Ezekiel Elliott has averaged 131.0 yards rushing in two career playoff games. The Pats will have a tough task at hand Sunday, as the Chargers should give them a game.

The over/under already has seen substantial movement, quickly coming off the open of 47 points down to 45.5. New England has covered in six of its previous eight home games and was favored by at least 5.5 points in all of them.
