Patriots fans probably will not like to hear this.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the NFL has had some discussions of moving a potential AFC championship game out of Dignity Health Sports Park (a 30,000 seat soccer stadium) and into Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. For this to even be a possibility, the Chargers would need to beat the Patriots, and the Colts would need to beat the Chiefs to set up a No. 5 vs. No. 6 AFC title game matchup.

La Canfora adds, this “is something many within the NFL offices would support.”

With that being said, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported after the report that there's “no way” the game would be moved from Dignity Healthy Sports Park because of an agreement the Chargers have.

While this is all pretty much nothing, it still may come up during this weekend's AFC divisional round games.
