BALTIMORE (AP) -- Michael Badgley kicked five field goals, and the Los Angeles Chargers contained rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens to carve out a 23-17 victory in the opening round of the NFL playoffs.
The Chargers. Now 13-4, will next face the second-seeded New England Patriots, who are 11-5, on the road Sunday. The Chargers last won two games during a single postseason in 2007, when the franchise was in San Diego.
Badgley set a franchise record for field goals in a playoff game. He connected from 21, 53, 40, 34 and 47 yards.
Next up on Sunday afternoon in the wild card round, the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Bears in Chicago.
