With every passing weekend in January, football teams nationwide face either the bitter sting of a lost championship or the sweetness of a Super Bowl dream that's still alive. In a battle of the coasts, the Los Angeles Chargers and the New England Patriots will take to the gridiron, fighting for a victory that puts them one step closer to gaining a Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The Chargers played the previous week during the wildcard games and claimed victory over the Baltimore Ravens, giving them the ability to advance to the next round. As the champions of their division, the AFC East, the Patriots had a bye week for the first round of playoffs, making the Divisional Championship round the first time they'll play.

CBS will be broadcasting the game across the country on its network stations.
