The NFL playoffs and the road to the Super Bowl in New York are all set; 12 teams will fight for the right of be called the 2013 Champions.
The Chargers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime and claimed the last spot in the AFC.
“We didn’t play our best game, but teams that are playoff teams find a way to win when you don’t play your best, and that’s what we did today,” quarterback Philip Rivers said after the Chargers (9-7) won their fourth straight and for the fifth time in six games.
In the NFC, Aaron Rodgers destroyed the Chicago Bears hopes and dreams with a late touchdown pass to Randall Cobb, and with that the Packers won the NFC North.
“We had a blitz on,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said. “We lost an edge. Aaron was able to get outside. Once he got outside things happen. When you’ve got a zero blitz on things can happen. And we just lost coverage with our eyes in the backfield.”
