NFL Playoffs: How to watch, stream Patriots vs. Chargers in Divisional Round

Julian Edelman shares'Beat L.A. hype video on Instagram

With a trip to the conference championship on the line, the Los Angeles Chargers are set to visit Foxborough this Sunday, and they've got one thing on their minds: Preventing what's been done countless times before and stopping the Pats from another deep run.

The forecast for Sunday in Foxborough is 29 degrees, which recently has been a good thing for the Patriots.

Hours before, Bill Belichick said, "We're playing the Chargers. We're not playing the weather", he said.

"Nice", Brady said of the impending footnote.

Brady and counterpart Philip Rivers (37) combine to be the oldest pair of quarterbacks to face each other in a postseason game, breaking the mark Brady had with Peyton Manning.

But Rivers has had a terrific season, and the Chargers (13-4) won at Baltimore in the wild-card round. Certainly, it's a Tom Brady-led team and we know how things work with the quarterback and the head coach that have the record attached to it.

Brady is 7-0 as a starter against Rivers. "We've got a heck of a challenge". The only time Rivers has beaten New England was in 2008 when Brady was injured and Matt Cassel was at QB. LA is 8-1 on the road, while New England is 8-0 at home this season.

"This is why you play", he said.

On Sunday, L.A. will get its chance at postseason redemption - and a path to long-awaited Rivers glory, while the Patriots will get their chance to prove their dynasty remains alive and well.

"You know, it's been a tough year, period, but she would want me to be here doing my job", he told reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times. "It's going to take our best to win". Yet they're also about as opposite as the Pats as could be when it comes to playoff history, as the Chargers have advanced past the Divisional Round just once since 1994.
