3 things we learned in the Patriots win over the Chargers

  • WATCH: Chargers' Travis Benjamin runs one of the worst punt returns in NFL history

Left with just 1:08 and no time outs, Rivers led his team all the way down to the Patriots' 23-yard line. His rushing attempts have no risen in each of the past five weeks, but is stuck in a purgatory role for fantasy teams since he's not catching many passes nor getting scoring opportunities. Does the possible absence of Hogan mean the Patriots might dip into the possibility of trading for disgruntled Pittsburgh wide receiver Martavias Bryan before Tuesday's deadline?

Bosa has 8.5 sacks through the Chargers' first eight games of the 2017 season.

"We weren't going to let him escape", Jones said.

The game was encouraging for the Denver Broncos (3-3) because they increased their lead over the Chargers in the AFC West and they saw that the Patriots are a beatable team.


NOTES: Patriots T Marcus Cannon left with a right ankle injury, while WR Chris Hogan left late with a shoulder injury. Curiously, especially given the weather conditions, Los Angeles chose to attempt a 51-yard field goal. And then they had a first down on the Chargers' 22 on the next drive and settled for a field goal with Brady taking a sack on second down. "I think we just have to do a better job of that".

Stephen Gostkowski added four field goals, missing two. The second one, I put a good swing on it.

Tom Brady (he's 40, you know) had a solid game aside from his offense's troubles in the red zone, completing 32 of his 47 passes for 333 yards, while nimbly avoiding Chargers pressure the bulk of the contest. It was hardly the only miscue on the play, but it highlights how the 245-pound Marsh has had some struggles with the all-important responsibility of setting a hard edge in the running game.
