LA Chargers' Philip Rivers vows to go with the flow

The post-season kicks off this weekend with the wild-card games, and we've highlighted one matchup per contest to keep a close eye on.

The Sunday afternoon game featured a rematch for the two teams after the Ravens squared off against the Chargers in Week 16.

Sharpe also picked the Chargers to win Sunday, but emphasized his decision is based on the fact he trusts Rivers to win the game with his arm more than Jackson.

Rookie first-round pick Lamar Jackson was thrust into the starting lineup for the injured Flacco.

If the Chiefs and Patriots do meet for a trip to the Super Bowl, the advantage is in the favor of Kansas City. He's on the tail-end of his career along with other QBs from the 2004 draft class like Eli Manning of the Giants and Ben Roethlisberger of the Steelers.

U.S. and China trade deal probable after positive talks
The two have negotiated a truce in an expensive and ongoing trade war. It was unclear who initiated the call between Trump and Xi. December was a particularly trying month for USA equities.

Young's presence will be missed in the Ravens' secondary.

Take a look at this stat. Harbaugh acknowledged that there was consideration given to playing the 33-year-old, and that everyone was on the same page about what might or might not happen (he declined to give more details).

The NFL's CBA stipulates that all players, from star quarterbacks to long-snappers, earn the same paycheck come playoff time.

If he's limited against Baltimore's fourth-ranked rushing defence that could really hinder the Chargers' hopes, especially with his back-up Austin Ekeler also struggling for fitness. He recorded 45 receptions for 579 yards and four touchdowns last season and scored eight in his rookie year. The Ravens are favorites in this game both betting wise and popular opinion wise. Only the Seahawks, anchored by Chris Carson, have a more lethal running game. In the first 10 games, Los Angeles outscored teams 64-55 over the first 15 minutes. The NBA playoffs are flawed because the Western Conference is so much tougher than the Eastern Conference and over half the teams make it. The pass rush is led by Ingram and Joey Bosa, who combined for 11.5 sacks during the regular season.

Jackson's passing accuracy is regularly queried, so Harbaugh and assistant Marty Mornhinweg chose to gameplan for Jackson, along with unheralded backs Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon, to run, run and run.
