Los Angeles Chargers hang tough, but fall to Patriots in Foxborough

3 things we learned in the Patriots win over the Chargers

Rex Burkhead had seven catches for 68 yeards, while James White caught five balls for 85 yards. For the second-straight week, the Patriots held an opposing quarterback to fewer than 300 yards (212).

The Chargers probably aren't good enough to overcome coaching and special teams blunders against a team like the Patriots.

On that return, Travis Benjamin made a boneheaded play, fielding the punt and reversing field all the way back toward his own end zone.

The Pats would take on two field goals before the half to take a 15-7 lead to the break.

Three things we learned in a 21-13 Patriots win over the Chargers Sunday at Gillette Stadium. That allowed the Pats to possess the ball for almost 30 minutes, keeping Philip Rivers and his offense on the sideline.




Gostkowski would redeem himself with a 21-yard field goal with 1:08 left to play in the game to put the Patriots up 21-13.

The Chargers' Melvin Gordon ran for 132 of their total 157 rushing yards, including an 87-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa set a record for most sacks by an NFL player through his first 20 games in the league.

That's not great. After the safety, the Patriots kicked a field goal, extending their lead over the Chargers.
