Pa­tri­ots, Saints ad­vance

Manawatu Standard - - Sport -

It was a tale of two very dif­fer­ent wins in the NFL play­offs yes­ter­day. The New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots cruised into the AFC con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship game, while the New Or­leans Saints had to rally late to qual­ify for the NFC de­cider. The Pa­tri­ots ran out 41-28 win­ers over the Los An­ge­les Charg­ers, while at the Su­per­dome in New Or­leans, the Saints got two touch­down passes from Drew Brees, two in­ter­cep­tions by Mar­cus Lat­ti­more, and ral­lied from a 14-point deficit to beat the Phil­a­del­phia Ea­gles 20-14 to ad­vance to the NFC cham­pi­onship game.
