The last time the Chargers played the Patriots was last season, when L.A. lost 21-13 at Gillette. So, the process that we go through and where we're going to go now, everything is a possibility. Unfortunately, things didn't go according to plan in their Wild Card matchup against the Los Angeles Charges. Baltimore had won five straight in the wild-card round under coach John Harbaugh. But he failed to get an interception in 16 games - the first time that has happened in his career - and his three pass breakups were a career low. "I picked up a pretty good amount".
Melvin Ingram turned in a big performance in the Los Angeles Chargers' playoff win Sunday. Jackson gained some momentum in the middle of the fourth quarter with two touchdown passes to Michael Crabtree, but it was too little, too late for Baltimore to rally.
Los Angeles matched the Saints, 7-1, for the best record on the road during the regular season.
In comparison, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers quietly finished the game with 150 passing yards, no interceptions and no touchdowns.
Harbaugh's seat became rather hot in the middle of the season, when the Ravens were mired in a losing streak and seemed ready to turn the page toward a new era in Baltimore, beyond that of Harbaugh, Joe Flacco and Ozzie Newsome.
Linebacker Terrell Suggs hopes to return to Baltimore next season.
"It definitely did bother me", left tackle Ronnie Stanley said after the final team meeting of the year. Jackson has fumbled in nine straight games. The Ravens and the Seahawks are both run-heavy teams that weren't able to keep it going when it mattered, and the Texans simply seemed to have no answers for the potent Colts in the first half.
Chargers: CB Brandon Facyson missed the second half with a concussion. Tom Brady is 6-2 against the Chargers, and 2-0 in the postseason.
When Ravens coach John Harbaugh made a decision to stick with Jackson on the next drive, the boos began to rain down.
