New England Patriots: 5 defensive players to watch vs L.A. Chargers

Just 29-years-old and financially set, Gronkowski almost retired last season rather than be traded to the Lions and finish his career elsewhere.

"I love the grind", Gronkowski said. "No matter where I am, I still think about her".

The 29-year-old veteran has battled many injuries throughout his career, and his physical, bruising style of play certainly doesn't bode well for him aging gracefully.

The defensive tackle had missed four games this season so he could be with his daughter who was receiving treatment. "I'm just happy I'm still able to play this game". Tom Brady threw for 343 yards and a touchdown.

Though the Chargers will arrive to New England with plenty of confidence, the Pats look like they'll be ready to rock. While running back Sony Michel rushed for 129 yards and three touchdowns.

Nonetheless, the contest should be close and could come down to the final minutes, but the Chargers end New England's seven-game divisional round winning streak and move on to play the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.

The last time the Chargers and Patriots met in the postseason was the in the AFC Conference Championship during the 2007 playoffs.
