(AP Photo/Winslow Townson, File)

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Patriots are going on the road again in the playoffs, a place that hasn't always been kind to them during the Tom Brady era.

But he's just 2-3 on the road in the conference title game, with both wins coming at Pittsburgh during 2001 and 2004 seasons. New England was 3-5 in games away from Gillette Stadium during the 2018 regular season.
