New England Patriots are headed to another AFC Championship game and former South Carolina standout Stephon Gilmore did his part Sunday.

Gilmore had an interception in the fourth quarter to seal the 41-28 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. New England plays at Kansas City next Sunday at 6:40 p.m. in the AFC title game.

It was Gilmore’s third interception on the season and first one in four postseason games. The Pro Bowl selection had a tackle, interception and two pass defensed in the game.

Former Gamecock Melvin Ingram had two tackles, one for loss, in the defeat for the Chargers.
