Bill Belichick, Patriots Install Temperature Gauge Outside Chargers Tunnel at Gillette Stadium

The Patriots purposely placed a thermometer where the Chargers would have to see it to remind them they aren't in California anymore.

The temperature at Gillette Stadium is expected to be 25 degrees at kickoff.

The New England Patriots held a moment of silence prior to Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers to honor the passing of Brandon Mebane's infant daughter earlier in the week. A win would return the Bolts to the AFC title game for the first time since Philip Rivers played that game with a torn ACL.

The New England Patriots came up short in their latest bid for a Lombardi Trophy nearly a year ago, and while they're back in the playoff picture, another first-round bye week in the books, they've got maybe the most talented team in the AFC standing in their way.

"You know, it's been a tough year, period, but she would want me to be here doing my job", he told reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram will be able to pressure Brady, which is something he doesn't play well under.

Julian Edelman climbed up the NFL's postseason record book on Sunday, as the Patriots receiver now owns the second-most receptions in playoff history.

Nonetheless, the contest should be close and could come down to the final minutes, but the Chargers end New England's seven-game divisional round winning streak and move on to play the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
