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 ♡

Go chargers lol. Either way both the chargers and NE have beat KC so that should be interesting in ARROWHEAD next week.

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.

    • My feelings exactly.  Post of the year.
    • Dumb of the Steelers imo. Fitzpatrick is a baller but their pick could be a top 5-10 pick. They could be terrible with Big Ben out. And he has played with the idea of retiring many times so that pick could have gone to a QB in a deep class. 
    • As long as we win that is all that matters. We won yesterday beating a decent divisional opponent on the road. We should be 2-0 had Adam made his kicks against the Chargers. After another draft, we should have a great defense next year which will help carry this team even more. Do not expect the Colts to throw for a lot of yards as the team is built to run behind that great O.line. If Brissett can throw for around 220 a game I will be happy if he doesn't turn it over. Yesterday we had 167 yards rushing so he didn't need to throw for a lot of yards. His 146 yards passing isn't as bad as it looks either, he would've had another 40 or so that we gained on that interference call, he also had 3 crucial runs for 1st downs as well. His 3 TD's to only 1 INT I will take all day. For now I am behind Brissett, he isn't as good as Luck, he isn't great, but to me he does look good so far. 
    • Dont always go by the stats.  Watch the tape.  His position in this D will always have tons of tackles.  Whats alarming is his poor performances in pass coverage.  U can go back to the KC game and it is some what alarming how he seems to regressed.   I chalk it up to playing better offensive teams and he is getting exposed.  I look forward to Speed and Okerke getting a chance
    • If JB gets hurt and we have CK or Hoyer on the roster then CK will be the starter. I think that Hoyer was brought in more for CK benefit then JB.
