But now Mebane said his wife and two other daughters are back in California as the team prepares to head to New England. They're now enjoying a first-round bye after earning the No. 2 seed in the AFC during the regular season.

"We know the run [the Patriots have] had", he told Tracy Wolfson of CBS Sports.

— Andrew Luck, Colts, threw two touchdown passes and finished 19 of 32 for 222 yards with an interception in Indianapolis' 21-7 victory at Houston. Because the Colts will be the lowest remaining seed in the next round, that means they will have to play the No. 1-seed Kansas City Chiefs.

Despite the tragedy, Mebane said he plans on playing in Sunday's AFC divisional round against the Patriots. New England has covered in six of its previous eight home games and was favored by at least 5.5 points in all of them.

Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 137 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, and the Dallas Cowboys hung on for a 24-22 wild-card win over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday night.

Wilson's 7-yard scoring pass to J.D. McKissic got the Seahawks within four, and they made it a two-point game on their second 2-point conversion following an injury to kicker Sebastian Janikowski.

It's been a long time since we've talked about the Chargers this deep into the season, especially the playoffs, as it hasn't happened that much over the past few years. This is the early game on the second day of the divisional round with the New Orleans Saints hosting the late afternoon game.
