Out in Los Angeles, Chargers running back Melvin Gordon (knee) and center Mike Pouncey (thumb) both sat out practice Wednesday. He missed the Chargers' 23-17 win over the Ravens on Sunday. And at receiver, no Patriots player came close to the kind of production Keenan Allen enjoyed in his sixth season. 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.
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 New England Patriots and Chargers are two of the original eight teams from the American Football League.
The problem for New England is that Los Angeles is just so incredibly balanced across the board. This season, he has 40 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in 12 games. The Los Angeles Chargers and Baltimore Ravens square off at 1:05 p.m. EST, meaning New England can begin preparing by the end of the day.

Trump to press U.S. border 'crisis' in televised address
Defense officials say they will be monitoring to see if a declaration of national emergency comes during those events this week. Trump has said he's considering declaring a national emergency to circumvent Congress and build his desired wall along the U.S.
The good news is that the Patriots will know who they play at some point in the afternoon Sunday.
The Chargers got even for a 22-10 loss two weeks ago to Baltimore (10-7), the AFC North champions.
While Patriots quarterback Tom Brady watched the game, as soon as the clock struck zero, he keyed in on his next opponent - the Bolts. Not only will that help tire out the opposing pass rush... it will also keep Rivers on the sideline - fuming and cursing like he always does, most likely - but safely rendered ineffective.
We have some snow and low temperatures in the forecast for Sunday's game. The victor of that game will then take on the victor of the Chiefs vs. Colts divisional game to determine the AFC championship game.
