After a wild opening weekend, where three teams were on the road and had a surprise, the NFL playoffs now go into the division round, in which five newcomers and three well-known faces can be seen.
One of those familiar faces is one of the patriots who will play in the division round in the ninth year.

Tom Brady has been wholly owned by Phillip Rivers throughout his career, with a 7-0 record against the Chargers quarterback.

The Chiefs earned a spot in the AFC title game since the 1993 season thanks to their 31:13 victory over the Colts on Saturday. The Chiefs' victory over Indy was the first time that Kansas City have won a home game for 25 years , The victory means that the Chiefs can now for the first time in the franchise history to host an AFC championship.
In the NFC divisional round, the Rams will open a game against the Cowboys on Saturday night, who have not won a playoff game since the 1992 season. This game marks the first appearance of the Rams in the division round since 2004.
The other NFC game will involve the Cinderella team that has come to know and love America: The Philadelphia Eagles. After their 16-15 tipping over of the Bears on Sunday, the Eagles will now travel to New Orleans to contest the only rematch of the division round. Back in the 11th week, the Holy Philly destroyed in a 48-7 victory.
