Kansas City has never hosted a conference championship game before.

They will play the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional final on 20 January, where victory would see them reach a third consecutive Super Bowl.

The No. 6 seed Colts fell 31-13 to No. 1 seed Kansas City in their AFC Divisional Round matchup Saturday, ensuring the victor of Patriots-Chargers on Sunday will have to visit Arrowhead Stadium next weekend in the Chiefs' first home AFC Championship Game in franchise history.

But after taking down Baltimore last week, Los Angeles is tasked with beating a New England team that hasn't lost many home playoff games during the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady era.

"It's going to be a good game", Brady said of the rematch with the Chiefs.

Sunday's Patriots-Chiefs game will match one of the league's best young quarterbacks, Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes, against five-time Super Bowl victor Tom Brady of New England.

Veteran C.J Anderson pitched in with 123 yards and two scores, while Todd Gurley added another 115 yards as the Los Angeles offensive line dominated the Cowboys defense.

The two teams faced each other in the regular season.

The NFC second seed, the Rams will be seeking their fourth conference title but a first since moving back to Los Angeles from St. Louis in 2016. Win three more games.

The Patriots and Chiefs met in one of the best games of this National Football League regular season. The Patriots beat the Chiefs 43-40 in Foxborough in Week 6. Tom Brady threw for 340 yards.

Both teams looked great in the divisional round. The Chiefs blew out the Indianapolis Colts 31-13, with their defense having a surprisingly dominant day.
