Divisional round

Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick are the masterminds behind the New England Patriots legacy
Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick are the masterminds behind the New England Patriots legacy

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick were doing Tom Brady and Bill Belichick things as they wiped out the Chargers after a flying start behind rookie running back Sony Michel. Philip Rivers had no answer as the Pats closed out a perfect 9-0 season at home.

They'll face the Kansas City Chiefs as they enjoyed a similar emphatic victory over the Indianapolis Colts at Arrowhead Stadium. Patrick Mahomes won his first play-off game but again it was the running game that did the damage as the Chiefs turned around their previously poor form in rush defence.

Running was also the key in the NFC game in Los Angeles as the Rams ran over the Cowboys despite all the talk before the game being about whether LA could handle Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas rushing attack.

The Rams now face a second trip to New Orleans in a season with a rematch against the Saints, with the top seeds eventually ending the reign of the Philadelphia Eagles despite going 14-0 behind in a terrible start.

There were even a few boos ringing around the Superdome but Drew Brees eventually found his rhythm and the defence bottled up the Eagles to not allow one more point in the remaining three quarters.

NFL wildcard results & reports

What a weekend that was! It started with a brilliant opening from Andrew Luck to slice open the Houston Texans before the Indianapolis Colts defence took over in the second half to steer the side to victory - and a date with the AFC top-seeded Chiefs.

Dallas then enjoyed a rare play-off win as they withstood a late Russell Wilson fightback to beat the Seattle Seahawks for the first time in four games to progress to a trip to LA to face the Rams.

The Chargers and Ravens were embroiled in perhaps the toughest game of the weekend with some monumental defensive efforts from both teams, but rookie Lamar Jackson just made too many mistakes for Baltimore despite his late flurry.

John Harbaugh resisted the calls to bring Joe Flacco back in at quarterback and although it cost them this time it could be best for both of them in the future. The Chargers roll on to New England.

The curtain came down in thrilling fashion with the defending champions keeping their Super Bowl defence alive by the skin of their teeth as Cody Parkey's field goal hit both post and crossbar to deny the Chicago Bears victory at a stunned Soldier Field.

Chicago looked the better side throughout but Nick Foles engineered a late touchdown just when they needed it the most to nose ahead and the Bears response just fell short - or wide. You just can't rule out Foles in the post-season it seems.
