Chargers vs Patriots 2019 Live Stream : How to Watch NFL Football Game Online Free HD TV Coverage

A berth in an eighth consecutive AFC Championship Game is on the line for the Patriots this weekend.

It would be an incredible streak, and one that hasn’t been discussed much on a national level.Since the Patriots’ most recent run of AFC title game appearances began in 2011, no other team has reached more than three conference championships total. The Niners went to three (from 2011-13). The Ravens, Falcons, Seahawks, Broncos, and Packers each went to two.

The Patriots keep chugging along, in position for No. 8.

Unlike past years, a loaded divisional round opponent stands in the way.

The Chargers are as complete a team as there is in the conference. They’ve already won several huge road games. This won’t be a layup for the Pats.

Here are the five things to watch in the matchup:

WILL THE PATRIOTS GO BIG?
The Chargers are down to one healthy linebacker after placing Jatavis Brown on injured reserve. Kyle Emmanuel and Hayes Pullard each played one snap versus the Ravens. Los Angeles used seven defensive backs on nearly every snap, and their lack of depth at the linebacker position could force them to utilize the same strategy on Sunday.

The simple solution for the Patriots: Line up in ’21’ personnel with James Develin in the backfield and run the ball right at the Chargers.

When the Patriots go ’21’ personnel (two receivers, a tight end, Develin at fullback, and a halfback) on first-and-10, they run the ball 75.8 percent of the time. They’re somewhat predictable, but nevertheless effective. Those running plays generated an average of 5.1 yards. Conversely, fist-and-10 running plays out of ’11’ personnel — or three receivers — yielded an average of 4.4 yards. When the Patriots go with ’11’ personnel on first-and-10, they’re slightly more varied in their playcalling (58 percent pass, 42 percent run).

In the playoffs, the Patriots figure to ratchet up the creativity. But if the Chargers simply cannot stop them in big formations early, why get too cute?

AN OPENING FOR GRONK
Last time the Chargers came to Gillette, it was death by a thousand checkdowns.

Gus Bradley’s defense allowed James White and Rex Burkhead to catch 12 passes for 153 yards. There may have been some defensive breakdowns, as Burkhead sometimes caught the ball with 10 yards of open space in front of him, but generally the Chargers were willing to with Tom Brady’s short completions.

The 2018 Chargers allowed 973 receiving yards to running backs, the second highest total by any NFL defense over the past decade. The vulnerabilities are still there. But as the Chargers flood the middle of the field with defensive backs, playing linebacker-free football, they’re perhaps in better position to deal with the short passing game.

The upshot of that? If the Chargers’ zone defenders are concerned with the passes to the flat, Rob Gronkowski could find space between the short and deep zones. This is where Tom Brady could take some shots to the big fella.

WEATHER REPORT
Don’t know if you’ve heard, but it’s going to be cold.

How much will this affect a team flying in from Los Angeles?

Advantage definitely goes to the Pats. The coldest game the Chargers played this year was a Week 15 Thursday night win over the Chiefs. The temperature was 39 degrees at kickoff, according to Pro Football Reference.

Philip Rivers has limited experience in sub-30 temperatures. Despite playing in the league for 15 seasons, Rivers is 1-3 in games played in such conditions.

WINNING UP FRONT
The Chargers were among the league’s most efficient teams on the ground. The Patriots were among the worst at defending the run on a per-carry basis, allowing 4.9 yards a pop.

The two units are trending in opposite directions, though. Los Angeles enters with two banged-up running backs. Melvin Gordon, who posted a career-high 5.1 yards per carry, is nursing a pair of sore knees. Third-down back Austin Ekeler was a game-time decision with a groin injury last week. He didn’t look like himself against the Ravens.

Meanwhile, the Patriots defense seemed to find itself in the final few weeks, albeit against inferior competition. Bill Belichick tweaked his personnel, activating defensive tackle Danny Shelton for gameday and promoting 6-foot-6, 295-pound end Ufomba Kamalu from the practice squad. The front seven looked great against the Jets, stuffing running back Elijah McGuire at or behind the line of scrimmage on 10 of his 18 carries.

The New England defensive front needs to keep this going against Gordon and Co.

If the Chargers can run the ball, Philip Rivers’ day gets much, much easier.

SPECIAL TEAMS
As we saw in last week’s Eagles-Bears matchup, everything could come down to the kicker.

Stephen Gostkowski has been doing this for a decade. Michael Badgley — dubbed the “Money Badger” by local media in California — is an undrafted rookie.

So far, so good for Badgley, who hit 5-of-6 field goal attempts at Baltimore in the Wild Card round. His lone miss was blocked.

For his career, Gostkowski is 34-of-38 on field goals in the postseason, an impressive 89.4 percent conversion rate. But he has missed some critical kicks in recent years, including an extra point in the 2015 AFC Championship Game at Denver, an extra point in the Super Bowl LI win over the Falcons, plus an extra point and a field goal in Super Bowl LII against the Eagles.

All of those kicks were away from Gillette Stadium.

Kick coverage will also be important. Both teams have explosive returners. Cordarrelle Patterson is among the most dynamic in league history, and Desmond King flashed his big-play ability with a 72-yard kick return in the Wild Card Round. The Patriots’ kickoff unit, which hasn’t been up to its usual standard this season, will be tested.

Cowboys vs. Rams odds, line: 2019 NFL divisional round picks, playoff predictions by advanced model on 16-6 run

Click here To watch Live Stream

With just eight teams remaining in the 2019 NFL Playoffs, the Divisional schedule features matchups that pit some of the league’s hottest teams against each other. That’s the case on Saturday night when the Dallas Cowboys travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams for an 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, the second game on the NFL Divisional schedule. The Cowboys have won eight of their last nine, while the Rams went 13-3 this season with a prolific offense and a disruptive defense led by Aaron Donald. Los Angeles is a seven-point favorite, unchanged from the opening line, with the total at 49.5 in the latest Cowboys vs. Rams odds. Before you make your NFL playoff predictions for this bout, be sure to check out the top Cowboys vs. Rams picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model.

The advanced computer model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. SportsLine’s proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.

The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018-19, entering the Divisional Round on a blistering 16-6 run. For the season, it is now 30-15 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 78-49. It also went 170-84 on straight-up NFL picks during the regular season, ranking inside the top 10 on NFLPickWatch.com. Additionally, it hit all four NFL against the spread picks on Wild Card Weekend. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Cowboys vs. Rams (stream live on fuboTV) 10,000 times. We can tell you it’s leaning Over, but it’s also generated a strong point-spread pick that’s hitting over 50 percent of the time. You can only see that one at SportsLine.

The model knows that balance is key to the Rams’ offense. L.A. had the No. 2-ranked total offense and scoring offense, and ranked in the top five in passing and rushing in 2018. Rams head coach and play-caller Sean McVay has a number of weapons at his disposal at the skill positions and uses that versatility to catch opposing defenses off guard. Quarterback Jared Goff had a career-high 32 touchdowns and posted a QB rating of over 100 for the second straight season, while running back Todd Gurley was third in rushing yards with 1,251.

And against the Cowboys, McVay will lean on running back Gurley against a banged-up Cowboys defensive line. DT Maliek Collins, DE Tyrone Crawford and DL David Irving are all ailing heading into the Divisional round. Gurley has been limited in practice this week with a knee injury, but should be healthier after sitting the last two games of the regular season and using the bye week to continue resting up.

But just because L.A. has plenty of firepower doesn’t mean Goff, Gurley, and company will cover the Cowboys vs. Rams spread.

The model also knows that Dallas’ line, anchored by defensive ends DeMarcus Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford, has been the team’s strength all season. While Crawford has produced 5.5 sacks, Lawrence posted 10.5 and forced two fumbles. If the Cowboys can exert enough pressure from the outside to force Goff to step up in the pocket, freed linebackers should be able to bring him down.

The MVP of Dallas’ offense has been wideout Amari Cooper. Acquired from the Raiders in a midseason trade, the veteran has produced 725 yards on 53 receptions in nine games with Big D. He came up huge in the wild-card game, setting up three scoring drives with critical plays and leading the way with 106 receiving yards. Running back Ezekiel Elliott churned out plenty of first downs in that contest, going for 169 yards from scrimmage and a score.

Who wins Cowboys vs. Rams? And which side of the spread hits in over 50 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Rams vs. Cowboys spread you need to be all over on Saturday, all from the incredible computer model that has returned nearly $4,000 to $100 bettors.

Indianapolis Colts Vs Kansas City Chiefs

NFL divisional round odds, line: Colts vs. Chiefs picks, predictions by top-rated expert who’s 20-6 on Indianapolis games

Chiefs vs Colts

Saturday’s divisional round matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs pits a resilient veteran against an up-and-coming superstar. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes finished the regular season with 50 passing touchdowns as a first-year starter under Andy Reid, while the Colts’ Andrew Luckreturned from a shoulder injury that kept him sidelined for the entire 2017 season to throw 39 touchdowns, second only to Mahomes. The Colts enter Saturday’s matchup brimming with confidence after winning 10 of their last 11 games. Meanwhile, the Chiefs secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC, but have lost two of their last three. Despite their recent skid, Kansas City is a five-point favorite, with the total at 57 in the latest Colts vs. Chiefs odds. Before you make any 2019 NFL Playoff predictions, check out the top Colts vs. Chiefs picks from SportsLine’s No. 1 NFL expert, R.J. White.

White is a perfect 5-0 in his past five against-the-spread picks for or against Kansas City and 20-6 in his past 26 involving the Colts, including calling Indy covering at Tennessee and Houston the past two weeks. Moreover, White went a perfect 4-0 against the spread on Wild Card Weekend, bringing his stunning NFL run to 55-31. Anyone following those picks is up over $2,000. This is the same expert who cashed big in two of the past four Las Vegas SuperContests.

Now, White has analyzed Chiefs vs. Colts (stream live on fuboTV)from every possible angle and locked in a strong point-spread pick. He’s sharing it over at SportsLine.

White knows the Chiefs have been a tough out at Arrowhead Stadium this season. In fact, Kansas City won seven of its eight home games and now faces a Colts team that was just .500 on the road.

The Chiefs are undeniably led by Mahomes, who joined Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks to throw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in a single season. Mahomes was second to Ben Roethlisberger in passing yards with 5,097, second to Ryan Fitzpatrick in yards per attempt at 8.79, and No. 2 to Drew Brees in QB rating at 113.8. He has a lethal arm and won’t hesitate to take shots downfield.

The entire offense shined throughout the 2018 regular season. Tyreek Hill was No. 4 in the NFL in receiving yardage at 1,479, and was also fourth in touchdown catches with a dozen. Travis Kelce was second to only the Eagles’ Zach Ertz in receptions among tight ends with 103 and found the end zone 10 times.

But just because Kansas City is an offensive juggernaut doesn’t mean it will cover the Colts vs. Chiefs spread.

Luck has thrown multiple touchdowns passes in 14 of 17 games and is a shoo-in for Comeback Player of the Year. His rebuilt offensive line has allowed a league-low 18 sacks while paving the way for running back Marlon Mack’s breakout. Mack has rushed for at least 119 yards in three of his past four games and just piled up 154 yards from scrimmage in the wild-card win at Houston.

The Colts have allowed 12.8 points per game over their past four contests. Indianapolis has covered seven straight against winning teams, not to mention five of its past six visits to Kansas City.

We can tell you White is leaning over, but his much stronger play is on the side. White cites a hidden stat most people don’t know about that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s only sharing what it is, and who to back, at SportsLine.

NFC Divisional Playoffs 2019

Cowboys vs. Rams odds, line: 2019 NFL divisional round picks, playoff predictions by advanced model on 16-6 run

With just eight teams remaining in the 2019 NFL Playoffs, the Divisional schedule features matchups that pit some of the league’s hottest teams against each other. That’s the case on Saturday night when the Dallas Cowboys travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams for an 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, the second game on the NFL Divisional schedule. The Cowboys have won eight of their last nine, while the Rams went 13-3 this season with a prolific offense and a disruptive defense led by Aaron Donald. Los Angeles is a seven-point favorite, unchanged from the opening line, with the total at 49.5 in the latest Cowboys vs. Rams odds. Before you make your NFL playoff predictions for this bout, be sure to check out the top Cowboys vs. Rams picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model.

The advanced computer model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. SportsLine’s proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.

The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018-19, entering the Divisional Round on a blistering 16-6 run. For the season, it is now 30-15 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 78-49. It also went 170-84 on straight-up NFL picks during the regular season, ranking inside the top 10 on NFLPickWatch.com. Additionally, it hit all four NFL against the spread picks on Wild Card Weekend. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Cowboys vs. Rams (stream live on fuboTV) 10,000 times. We can tell you it’s leaning Over, but it’s also generated a strong point-spread pick that’s hitting over 50 percent of the time. You can only see that one at SportsLine.

The model knows that balance is key to the Rams’ offense. L.A. had the No. 2-ranked total offense and scoring offense, and ranked in the top five in passing and rushing in 2018. Rams head coach and play-caller Sean McVay has a number of weapons at his disposal at the skill positions and uses that versatility to catch opposing defenses off guard. Quarterback Jared Goff had a career-high 32 touchdowns and posted a QB rating of over 100 for the second straight season, while running back Todd Gurley was third in rushing yards with 1,251.

And against the Cowboys, McVay will lean on running back Gurley against a banged-up Cowboys defensive line. DT Maliek Collins, DE Tyrone Crawford and DL David Irving are all ailing heading into the Divisional round. Gurley has been limited in practice this week with a knee injury, but should be healthier after sitting the last two games of the regular season and using the bye week to continue resting up.

But just because L.A. has plenty of firepower doesn’t mean Goff, Gurley, and company will cover the Cowboys vs. Rams spread.

The model also knows that Dallas’ line, anchored by defensive ends DeMarcus Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford, has been the team’s strength all season. While Crawford has produced 5.5 sacks, Lawrence posted 10.5 and forced two fumbles. If the Cowboys can exert enough pressure from the outside to force Goff to step up in the pocket, freed linebackers should be able to bring him down.

The MVP of Dallas’ offense has been wideout Amari Cooper. Acquired from the Raiders in a midseason trade, the veteran has produced 725 yards on 53 receptions in nine games with Big D. He came up huge in the wild-card game, setting up three scoring drives with critical plays and leading the way with 106 receiving yards. Running back Ezekiel Elliott churned out plenty of first downs in that contest, going for 169 yards from scrimmage and a score.

AFC Divisional Playoffs 2019

NFL Playoffs 2019: Schedule, Predictions and Odds for Divisional Round

CLick here To watch Live Stream

Eight teams remain as the NFL playoffs enters the divisional round.

In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles are trying to do it again with backup quarterback Nick Foles at the helm. They edged the Chicago Bears 16-15 in their wild-card matchup with a little thanks to a slightly tipped field goal off the foot of Cody Parkey, sending them to a contest with No. 1 seed New Orleans Saints.

The Dallas Cowboys, meanwhile, held off the Seattle Seahawks and will have a date with the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday.

In the AFC, the Los Angeles Chargers will be trying to win back-to-back road games during their showdown against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, while Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts head to Kansas City to face the Chiefs after taking care of the Houston Texans in a Wild Card Weekend rout.

Predictions

Colts at Chiefs

The playoffs have not been kind to the Chiefs during the Andy Reid era. They are 1-4 in total and 0-2 at Arrowhead Stadium. But this year seems different, and that is because of Patrick Mahomes.

The first-year starter dazzled with a league-leading 50 touchdown passes on the No. 1-ranked offense in the league.

He goes up against a Colts team that has plenty of momentum from a late-season surge into the playoffs and fresh from dismantling the Texans on the road in the Wild Card Round.

The biggest variable this time around is that a wintry mix of rain and snow is expected, per 41 Action News’ Gerard Jebaily:

The Colts have the offensive line to excel in those conditions, as well as running back Marlon Mack, but they are a dome team not used to playing in the elements. It also seems too hard to go against Mahomes at Arrowhead after an MVP-caliber season.

Chiefs 23, Colts 19

Cowboys at Rams

The Cowboys are feeling good about themselves after defeating a tough Seahawks team at home to advance to the divisional round, but they face another tall task in facing the Rams on the road.

Los Angeles should have a healthy Todd Gurley, who has had three weeks to rest up for this game and will be a key factor, especially after some less-than-encouraging performances from quarterback Jared Goff toward the end of the season.

Dallas also struggled on the road this season, going 3-5 away from AT&T Stadium. If the Cowboys can find a way to contain Gurley and defensive tackle Aaron Donald and keep it close, they will have a chance, but that feels like a long shot.

Rams 28, Cowboys 17

Chargers at Patriots

Philip Rivers and the Chargers have proved doubters wrong all season and showed in the Wild Card Round that the defense can make the necessary adjustments to wreak havoc, as they beat the Baltimore Ravens on the road just two weeks after the Ravens topped the Chargers in Los Angeles.

The Chargers are heading to Gillette Stadium in January, which is always a daunting task, especially when the Patriots are 8-0 there this season and frigid temperatures are expected, per AccuWeather, which does not bode well for a team located in Southern California.

While the Chargers have seemingly answered every call, it is tough to see them go back-to-back weeks on the East Coast to play the 1:05 p.m. game and beat the Patriots in freezing temperatures.

Patriots 24, Chargers 20

Eagles at Saints

The divisional round wraps up with the best team in the NFL against the darlings of the league.

Nick Foles and the Eagles hope luck and magic is still on their side as they head into the Superdome to face a Saints team that had the best record in the NFL this season.

New Orleans demolished Philadelphia in a 48-7 Week 11 victory, albeit against a Carson Wentz-led Eagles team.

Things are a little different, but can Foles and Co. knock off this juggernaut Saints team after winning by the skin of their teeth against the Bears in the Wild Card Round?
