The Patriots started their playoff run with a 45-10 win over the Broncos in the divisional round. As Patriots Nation enjoys winning their first playoff game in almost four years, now the question remains, who will they play next?

The Patriots will face the winner of Sunday’s Texans and Ravens match up in the AFC Championship game. Baltimore will host Houston on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m ET.

The Jan. 22 AFC Championship game will take place at 3 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium.

After a win like the Patriots had on Saturday evening, everyone is feeling confident. And why shouldn't they be? New England was firing on all cylinders and whether they play the Texans or Ravens, the Pats will give them a run for their money.
