The Patriots officially have an opponent.

The Chargers beat the Ravens, 23-17, Sunday afternoon in Baltimore. They will now travel to Gillette Stadium next Sunday at 1:05 p.m. for the AFC divisional round.

Los Angeles dominated the majority of the game, as it was 23-3 early in the fourth quarter before the Ravens got things going on offense. They had a chance to win the game by having the ball with around a minute to play, but Lamar Jackson fumbled to give the Chargers the win. Jackson was 14-for-29 with 194 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, while Philip Rivers went 22-for-32 with 160 yards. Jackson had a 0.0 quarterback rating at halftime.

It will not be an easy game by any means for the Patriots, as the Chargers come in with a 8-1 road record on the year and have won seven straight away from home. They are an extremely balanced team. In the regular season they scored the sixth-most points in the league and also allowed the eighth-fewest.

Rivers is 0-7 all-time against Tom Brady, including two playoff losses.

In the other AFC game, the Chiefs will host the Colts Saturday afternoon.
