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:

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 ♡

I know win or lose today I am going be cheering for whoever comes out of this game against KC.  I actually don’t dislike the Chargers so May the best team win and end up in the SB!

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

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.

    • I agree with this post.   But in hindsight I think Herbert would have been worth 4 1st rounders and anyone else on the roster they wanted.   I think he might be better than Mahomes and I think Mahomes is the best football player I've ever seen.  They are going to be the new Manning Brady rivalry IMO.  
    • Well that is what I am debating with you.  KC definitely has roster weaknesses and will have more as time goes along with the 50 million to Mahomes.  I disagree that they don't have deficiencies.  I think their deficiencies are covered up with Mahomes awesomeness.  They have a couple of really nice weapons in Kelce and Hill, and the rookie RB looks pretty good.    I think the Colts roster "holes" are more obvious than KC.  KC would not be that good of a team with a Rivers as QB.  My guess is they'd basically be at our level.   I don't know if it was you that was talking about run defense.  Their run defense is and has been bad.  It doesn't matter because they will outscore you and they often put teams in a position to have to throw so the line can just T off on the QB ala the manning defenses.  But most teams would be in terrible shape with bad run defense.  You should know, you are a Colts fan and that was our defensive issue for about 2 decades except the one year with Bob Sanders.   My argument is that I think people overlook KCs defieciencies because the all time great QB play makes them irrelevant.
    • Say it with me, Fireman Ed, J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets...     In other words, if you fire Adam Gase, there is a chance I am willing to come to your team. Otherwise, all bets are off. I commend Joe Burrow for doing what he has been doing so far, same with Justin Herbert, going to a bad team but still producing even if they do not result in team Ws.
