After leading his team to a 12-4 record in the regular season, quarterback Philip Rivers will make his first appearance in the playoffs in five years when the Chargers visit the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The Ravens, led by rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson, won their previous meeting against the Chargers 22-10 during a home game in Week 16.

Coach John Harbaugh has been saved by the Steelers' meltdown and Lamar Jackson's emergence in the run-first system they've adopted. 'You don't think the Chargers are going to be in it?' 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.

"You see the enthusiasm and motivation", the driver said, adding that the Ravens would not only beat the Charges, but reach the Super Bowl.

Take a look at this stat. Baltimore earned their home playoff game. The first four came in the first two quarters and ensured the Chargers would take a 12-0 lead into the locker room. Further, with temperate conditions expected in Baltimore Sunday afternoon, weather won't be a factor for the visitors from Los Angeles. "It's just whoever executes the best is going to win this game". After the road win in Baltimore to open the postseason, the Chargers will have to fly across the country for the second straight week to take on a Patriots squad that was the only National Football League team to notch a ideal 8-0 home record during the regular season. He has thrown at least two touchdowns in eight straight postseason games, marking the longest streak in postseason history. Their expert poll; however, gives Los Angeles a 77% chance to win this game. They shared this with the Los Angeles Chargers but had a tiebreaker over the Chargers to secure the No. 1 playoff spot-something they haven't done in 21 years.

Jackson didn't have a good game, throwing an interception and fumbling the ball multiple times, but it wasn't just the execution of the players that was bad.

On the Chargers' NEXT possession, the Ravens managed to alter a punt (it went 11 yards so it wasn't technically a block) and got the ball back in the Chargers territory. Baltimore managed to get a field goal out of it. Moore is deemed ready to play, but Young is missing just his second game this season after practicing Friday on a limited basis.
