Looking Ahead: Patriots – Chargers

New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers

San Diego and New England are preparing to face off this Sunday, renewing a rivalry that has included many memorable games, especially in recent years.

During the 2006 Divisional Playoffs, the 14-2 Chargers were upset by New England, 24-21.  After the win, the Patriots proceeded to dance on the San Diego lightning bolt logo.  The next season they met in the AFC championship game and the undefeated Patriots outlasted the banged-up Chargers, winning 21-12.

But as you get ready for the newest edition of this cross country AFC rivalry, take a look all the way back to the 1963 AFL Title game, which was dominated by San Diego.
