Colts Preparing For Ravens; Chargers Interested In Arians

Last updated on Wednesday, January 2, 2013

(Baltimore, MD) - The Indianapolis Colts will return to the playoffs after a one season absence to face the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Wildcard Round Sunday.

The Colts finished 11-5 won five of their last six games after purging the front office and 53 man roster following an abysmal two win season in 2011.

The Ravens are 10-6 and lost four of their last five games to close out their regular season campaign, including a loss to division rival Cincinnati last Sunday.

Baltimore won twelve games last year and earned a first round bye as the conference two seed, but lost at home to the New England Patriots in the AFC title game.

The San Diego Chargers are reportedly interested in hiring Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians as the team's next head coach.

Norv Turner was fired Monday after a 7-9 campaign and six seasons as head coach in San Diego.

The Chargers have a pro-bowl quarterback in Phillip Rivers and currently employ John Pagano, brother of Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano, as the team's defensive coordinator.

Arians led the Colts to the playoffs as Interim Head Coach after Chuck Pagano took a leave of absence to battle Leukemia.
