The New England Patriots made history with their AFC Divisional Round playoff win against the Los Angeles Chargers at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.
.@Patriots tie the Cowboys for the 2nd most playoff wins by a franchise in AFL/NFL history (35- just 1 off PIT for the most). Since 2001, they've won 28 & are now 20-3 at home in the playoffs during this span

The Patriots need one more postseason win to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most in history, and that means a Super Bowl LIII victory would set the record for the Pats.
For that opportunity, the Patriots first need to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium. New England has not won an AFC title game on the road since the 2004 season when it defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field.
Sunday also will mark the Patriots' 15th appearance in the AFC Championship Game, the second-most all time (Pittsburgh is No. 1 with 16). New England is 10-4 in these games.
