AFC Championship Could Be Played At LA Coliseum

The Los Angeles Chargers aren't supposed to win on Sunday, at least according to the odds-makers in Las Vegas, as they travel to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in a highly-anticipated AFC playoff contest. That would mean the AFC Title game would be held in 30,000-seat Dignity Health Sports Park, a soccer stadium that the team has a problem filling with their own fan base for two years now. As the home stadium of Major League Soccer's L.A. Galaxy, it is primarily used for soccer and is not properly created to accommodate NFL games.

The stadium would house the conference title bout only if the fifth-seeded Chargers and sixth-seeded Indianapolis Colts advance past the AFC Divisional Round.

However, this solution also presents another dilemma.

Simeone: ‘I can’t confirm or deny interest in signing Morata’
The Spaniard is said to be unhappy at the Stamford Bridge and could be on his way to the Camp Nou as a back up for Luiz Suarez. The same report claims that the deal would only be a loan move until the end of the season without an obligation to buy.

The sources said that the move could happen if the Rams don't advance to the NFC Championship Game and the Chargers do advance. It would simply be too much wear and tear for one gridiron to handle.

The NFL could move one of the two games to Monday as the league has confirmed in the past should the Giants and Jets both host Championship games. As a result, its capacity is less than 30,000 and that would be an atypical venue for any National Football League game, much less one that decides a trip to the Super Bowl. The NFL could alter its plans to get vital equipment and resources out of the L.A. Coliseum on the fly this weekend, sources said, in the event the Rams or Chargers are poised to host another game.

Additionally, for the Rams to host the NFC title game, they would have to beat the Dallas Cowboys at home, and the Philadelphia Eagles would have to knock off the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome.
