Foles, who stepped in for injured Carson Wentz to lead Philadelphia to the Super Bowl a year ago, was never going to give up and he had the Eagles at the New Orleans 27 in the fourth quarter before an interception ended their dreams.

New England demolished the Los Angeles Chargers 41-28 on Sunday, scoring a franchise-tying 35 points in the first half.

On the meeting with the Chiefs, Brady added: "It's that time of year".

Philadelphia Eagles face New Orleans Saints in the NFC divisional play-offs later on Sunday. The Saints' offense gets most of the attention due to National Football League all-time leading passer Drew Brees, but the defense has played very well in the second half of the season. Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson each had 100 yards rushing as the Rams pounded Dallas 30-22.

Kansas City's defense clamped down on Indianapolis in the other divisional game on Saturday with Mahomes throwing for 278 yards and running for a touchdown in a 31-13 win.

Liverpool's Andy Robertson defends Mohamed Salah from diving accusations
Brighton's players and fans reacted angrily to Salah winning the penalty under Pascal Gross' heavy challenge, but Robertson has mounted a strong defence of his Anfield team-mate.

With three minutes to go and the Saints up 20-14 the Eagles had one last chance to march up the field under Foles and take the game. The key in this game could be how the Eagles' rushing attack fares against a New Orleans defense that finished the regular season ranked second against the run.

This season's AFC decider will be a rematch of a wild week-six game in Foxborough that the Patriots won 43-40 on a 28-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski as time expired.

"They are a great team".

The starkest contrast between the two franchises is this: The Chiefs haven't played in a Super Bowl since January 11, 1970, while the Patriots have played in three of the last four Super Bowls.
