NFL Playoffs: Prescott's involuntary somersault leads Dallas to the quarter-finals

Things are finally breaking right for the Chargers and just when that's happening, here comes the dagger of Los Angeles potentially having to play in a nightmare, east coast weather game against the Patriots on Sunday.

Dallas needed two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and the best rushing day against the Seahawks by any club this season to subdue Seattle.

In the AFC, the Andrew Luck-led Indianapolis Colts travel to Houston where they will take on a Texans team that has been red-hot after a 0-3 start to the season.

Tune in to Sunday's Patriots-Chargers divisional round clash on WBZ-TV - the flagship station of the New England Patriots!

The Regular Season is finished, now are started in the National Football League the Playoffs.

Indy's defensive unit snuffed out a late rally bid by the Texans and the Colts advanced to a second-round game on Saturday next week at the top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs.

To their credit, the Chargers may have the No. 5 seed in the playoffs, but they finished with a better regular season record than the Patriots. And the winners of the first two games hot: the Dallas Cowboys and the Indianapolis Colts.

In the quarter-finals, the Cowboys are fighting next weekend against either the New Orleans Saints or the Los Angeles Rams in the first Playoff semi-final since 1995.

Well at least for the first playoff game it should be a breeze. Seattle's 24-22 loss at Dallas ended a run of nine straight victories in playoff openers.

— 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. Anything can happen in January, as evidenced by the last time two of these teams - the Cowboys and Seahawks - met in the playoffs all the way back in 2006. Since the lowest remaining seed will immediately face the No. 1 seed, this would leave Houston set for a date with Tom Brady and the Patriots regardless of the other outcome. Instead, my confidence comes from Deshaun Watson. New England has reached the AFC Championship Game in seven consecutive seasons, reaching the Super Bowl eight times in the Brady era.
