San Diego (+4) at New England (1-13-19)

Recommended Posts

1:05 EST...Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson on CBS

Low 20s and cloudy at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro..over-under 47

 

Phillip 'Old Man' Rivers (347 of 508, 4,308 yards, 32 Tds, 12 INTs) has not played at a peak in recent weeks and he'll get tight end Hunter Henry (who has not played all season) back in the lineup for the biggest game of the year.

RB Melvin Gordon (175 carries, 885 yards) will play but he is probably not near 100% and he''l face a Patriot defense that allowed just 93 rushing first downs in 16 games.

 

NE star 'Shady' Tom Brady (375 of 570, 4,355 yards, 29 TDFs, 11 INTs) has not been at his best this year but he still has good hands people in TE Rob Gronkowski (47 catches, 682 yards), WR Julian Edelman (74 catches, 850 yards) and RB James  White (87 caches, 751 yards)  plus RB Sony Michel (209 carries, 931 yards).  The Chargers have 35 sacks but Brady has only been sacked 21 times all year.

 

Like The Colts and KC, The Chargers (13-4) and New England (11-5) did not meet this season and that means the Chargers defense will have to adapt very quickly to whatever Brady wants to do. The Patriots split their last four games but again, with wo weeks off, that does not matter.

San Diego has scored just 42 points in the last three games.

 

    The Chargers have had a very good season but it ends here.  There's something wrong with Rivers. He's not throwing the ball like he did last year and with Gordon hurt, The Chargers will take their whipping.  James White is the X-man. He'll run it and he'll catch it.

Nobody really thinks the Chargers will win this game and I don't think they'll come within 4 points.

Step back from this game and look at it again.

Chargers at New England in January with the Patriots healthy?

You know how its going to end.

 

Patriots win and host the Colts in  'Grudge Match II"  :hulk:

I'm over the SD vs. LA thing.  Living out of area is a big part of it.   SD fans are returning to the fold rapidly.  Winnimg does that.

 

Win or lose tomorrow this has been a fun season and as an oldster, I have been enjoying every second of it ♡♡♡

Philip Rivers is one of my favorite QBs ever. I would love to see him win a Super Bowl. Now that the Colts are out of the playoffs, the Chargers are the only team left that keeps me watching the playoffs. I think they have a good chance to advance against this Pats team. Go Bolts!

 

@Girlzarefanstoo Is Gordon playing tomorrow?

He practiced limited this week, but is active for tomorrow so he should be a go.  We're pretty healthy.  Can't wait.  Thanks for rooting for us ♡

Once you make the Elite 8 even if your team loses most people walk away thinking they had at least a Good season. Pats fans probably think it would be a fail to lose in this round because they have made the Final 4 and SB so much but that is rare. This should be a good game.

Not surprised by that flag. :thmdown: (I did not see the play but Pats get all favorable calls.)

As usual NE will probably march to another SB regardless of whatever anyone else does in the AFC. 

It's wwf bizarro level.

Hope the Chargers can respond before things get out of hand.

They going again. Julian Edelman and James white can be the only WRs on this team and they can't be stopped

Yeah, with all the KC/Lac/Ind hype this postseason the Pats are going to come in and smack everyone and say..'shhhh, we're still here folks'.. Lol

Woof. The Chargers D is looking mediocre right now. This is the first Chargers game I’ve really watched this year though.

Media needs to stop touting the end of Brady. He’s not going to be done until he wants to be done. The guy is so good

They almost always win. They will probably go into Arrowhead and win as well lol. Tom is the GOAT, Montana is 2nd, I have Peyton 3rd. I will stick with that.

This is more BB than TB ... he always makes a bunch of jags look like all pros on both sides of the ball.

This is getting ugly. I hope Kansas City is ready and not too cocky after beating us. 

 

The Patriots are primed once again...

28-7 NE with 6:04 left to play in the second quarter. SD looks like the Colts.

    • Looks like we will get both back Sunday. With all the WR injuries I am excited to watch Campbell the last four games and see what he does. He should get lots of opportunities.    
    • Yeah, most mocks I've seen have Herbert going around 8-10, so if that holds we would have to trade up but Love or Eason should fall to us. It's gonna be interesting to see it play out, see if Ballard gets spooked and trades up, or has the nuts to wait and see if they fall...or even ballsier to wait and see if someone falls to the Redskins 2nd.   Hell, he may not go QB in the 1st, if they don't I'm really hoping they get a guy like Lamb, Higgins, or Shenault, a big bodied X receiver to compliment the speed of TY and Campbell. 
    • LOL. I'm not saying college is comp to NFL. What I am saying is if you're trying to gauge his ability to play vs tougher  or elite competition, Bama's D was tops in college for many of those years. I'm not saying his O in college could compete with NFL teams. I'm saying Bama had some of the best talent in college, and for instance, that would translate into increased pressure, tighter windows, etc....   And HS to College really isn't a good comp either. I played for a HS that won state twice while I was there. I had no delusions of them competing against a college team. I might take LSU or OSU over the Bengals this year though lol.
    • This mischaracterizes the issue in its entirety.  Just because it takes a long time for QBs to find generational talents at QB is not a reason they shouldn't try to get better at the position if the team doesn't have a generational talent at QB.  Bill Belichick has had Brady for the past 20 years and he's still drafted a QB every other year.  In the past 10 years, he's drafted 3 QBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.     It seems as though what you have in mind is teams selling the farm to trade up and take the #1 QB in the class at #1.  There are so many other viable ways ot get franchise QBs better than the one we have.  If we used a 2nd or 3rd on a QB, could it be the next Drew Brees or Russel Wilson?  Maybe.  But even if it's not and he sits a year and then ends up being better than Brissett, that's a win.  We can try again in another year or two.  You should always try to improve your roster and add valuable depth, no matter what the position is.     Yeah, we have a mediocre QB.  We should still be using higher draft capital and perhaps trading up in cases where it makes sense.  
    • At least he would add to the running game.  But still, no thanks. I'll take our chances in the draft.
