New England Patriots beat LA Chargers to reach AFC Championship game

New England Patriots beat LA Chargers to reach AFC Championship game

Moreover, they were joined in singing the song by none other than the man who made it famous, Jon Bon Jovi.

Philip Rivers #17 of the Los Angeles Chargers reacts during the second quarter in the AFC Divisional Playoff Game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on January 13, 2019 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

It's not the first time the two-time Grammy Award nominee has stolen the spotlight in Foxborough.

After suffering a concussion against the Jets in the regular-season finale, McCourty missed the two practices last week during the Patriots' bye.

After the Patriots jumped out to a 41-14 lead early in the final frame, Bon Jovi and Kraft were shown on the CBS broadcast singing along and bumping their heads to the rocker's classic Livin' On A Prayer.

Bon Jovi is no stranger to the Patriots organization, thanks to head coach Bill Belichick being a big fan of the Jersey rocker. He completed 34-of-44 passes for 343 yards and threw a touchdown to Phillip Dorsett.

If this season for the Chargers (13-4) was an old-school video game, those wins in London, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Baltimore were levels up for the final road-test boss they face now: a New England team flawless at home this season.
