Following today’s slate of NFL games, the Los Angeles Chargers will travel as the 5 seed to take on the 4 seed Baltimore Ravens on Wild Card weekend in the first round of the NFL playoffs. Now, thanks to Jeff Zrebiec via Twitter, we know what date and time:
Ravens will play the Chargers Sunday at 1:05 p.m.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) December 31, 2018
The Chargers will be the morning game as they face the Ravens in a rematch of week 16’s ugly home loss. This game will be different in a number of ways. For one, this is a playoff game for both teams whereas last week’s game had a great deal more meaning for the visiting Ravens. For another, the Chargers will be traveling across the country for a kickoff that takes place at 10:05 a.m. PT. For yet another, the Chargers have now faced the Ravens’ unusual offense and will hopefully have had time to come up with a better plan of attack.
The Ravens are the third team the Chargers will face a second time after losing the first matchup. The Chargers are 2-0 in those rematches thus far this season.
