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

3 things Patriots fans should know about Chargers

3 things Patriots fans should know about Chargers

The Patriots controlled the pace of the game throughout, holding possession for almost 37 minutes and notching 27 first downs. Philip Rivers looked great on the drive, completing all three of his passes for 38 yards. It's worth noting that the Chargers began the game by trying to kick a 51-yard field goal instead of going for a fourth-and-1. Coming into the game, New England had scored on 53.33 percent of their red zone visits in 2017, only 16th-best in the league. That unit had another solid outing against the Chargers, save for Melvin Gordon's 87-yard touchdown run in the first half.

The response by the Patriots was, well...more Patriot-like. In 8 games he has 33 receptions for 438 yards and 5 touchdowns. Brady caught the Chargers with 12 men on the field for one of the third down conversions, certainly a specialty of his through the years. It's hard to put a finger on what exactly Benjamin was thinking during the second quarter at Gillette Stadium, when he muffed a New England punt near the 10-yard-line. Gordon gets a much needed bye week in Week 9 as he's now dealt with knee, foot and toe injuries over the first half of the season.

School named after Jefferson Davis to be renamed after Barack Obama
The issue sparked violent protests that received national attention in August in Charlottesville, Va., and resulted in one death. The school name change comes amid a national debate over the removal of Confederate statutes in various cities across the U.S.

A last-minute comeback attempt by the Chargers fell short deep in Patriots territory when Jonathan Jones intercepted a pass intended for Travis Benjamin.
