The Patriots won over the Chargers putting them in the AFC title game for the eighth consecutive time. They'll face the Chiefs in the AFC title game after their win yesterday over the Colts.
That should be a great game
The Rams beat the Cowboys yesterday and will play either the Saints or the Eagles, depending on who wins the game right now. About 8 minutes left to go. As a Skins fan, was really happy to see Dallas go home, and rooting for the Saints in this one.
I was pulling for the Chargers to win it all since they never have, but since they're out, go Chiefs!!
EDIT: The Saints won, sealing the deal with a late interception. So it'll be the Rams and the Saints in the NFC title game.
Well they won the AFC championship in '94 but lost in the Super Bowl to the 49ers. That was their only trip. Rivers came into the league the same year as Eli Manning and was actually the one drafted by the Giants, and Eli by the Chargers. But Eli and his dad caused such a ruckus saying Eli didn't want to play for a "losing" team that the two teams basically swapped draft picks. Now, Eli has two rings and Rivers has none.
Really wanted to see Rivers do it this year. He got beat up in today's game and 15 years in the league is a long time. Who knows if he'll even come back next year?
Yeah, but two rings, compared to none has to sting. He's watched all the guys around him do it, Eli, Peyton, Brady who beat them today, it's gotta hurt. He's only 40, but that's aged when you consider the physical abuse these guys take every time they play. And he got beat up today, his line sucked. I'm almost 50 and I get winded taking out the trash, lol.
Anyway, I just like and respect the guy. Really wanted to seem in the big one this year. Hope he comes back next season.
