The New England Patriots will host the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC divisional playoffs following this weekend's wild card games.
With Cincinnati's loss to the sixth seeded San Diego Chargers, the Patriots will welcome the fourth seeded Colts to Gillette Stadium 8:15 p.m. Saturday Jan. 11.
A limited number of tickets will go on sale for the Patriots-Colts game Monday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
The Patriots last played the Colts on Nov. 18, 2012, a 59-24 win for New England. Luck threw three interceptions in that game, including a pick-six to then-newly acquired Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib. And Rob Gronkowski first suffered a broken forearm on an extra point attempt.
Tom Brady is 10-4 all-time against the Colts, including 2-1 in the postseason. The last time the Patriots played the Colts in the postseason, Jan. 21, 2007, the Patriots came away with a 38-34 loss.

Now that Luck is there I think of the Colts in a whole different light, to the point I would even root for them if they beat the Pats.Lets hope its a good game that the Pats can control the ball. If they can shut down the run and force Luck to throw the ball to anyone other than Hilton it should go good for the Pats. One thing to watch will be how they play Fleener. He could be the big thorn in the Pats side as well as Brown out of the back field.

By Michael Whitmer, Globe Staff
Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, in his first public comments since reports surfaced that the Browns wanted to interview him for their head coaching job, confirmed Monday that he met with Browns officials, but wouldn't offer any details on where talks stood.
With the Patriots preparing for Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Colts, McDaniels said his focus is firmly on the upcoming game.
"I appreciate the question, I understand it, and I know that’s something that comes up each time this year for other coaches, and the opportunities are certainly flattering if they come up," McDaniels said. "That being said, I’m going to try to keep my focus on the Colts and our preparation this week.
"Like I’ve said in the past, I’m fortunate to have the job I have, I love being here, love doing what I’m doing. Each opportunity that comes along is a little different. I’m going to leave it at that, and continue to focus and put my attention and my effort into the Colts this week."
"We met, and that’s about all there is at this point," McDaniels said. "Nothing further."
