Chargers Zap Ravens

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 Sunday in the opening round of the NFL playoffs.

The Chargers (13-4) will next face the second-seeded New England Patriots (11-5) on the road this coming Sunday.

The Chargers last won two games during a single post-season in 2007, when the franchise was in San Diego.

Badgley set a franchise record for field goals in a playoff game as he connected from 21, 53, 40, 34 and 47 yards.

The Chargers built a 23-3 lead in the fourth quarter before Jackson threw two touchdown passes to make it close.

The Chargers got even for a 22-10 loss two weeks ago to Baltimore (10-7), the AFC North champions.
