Tom Brady once again threw for over 300 yards, but just one touchdown, and the running backs were heavily involved in the passing game.
Bosa's second-quarter sack of New England Patriots star Tom Brady on Sunday was the 19th of his two-year National Football League career. After touching the punt at his own 11-yard line and scooping up the ball at the 8-yard line, Benjamin chose to run backwards to create some separation. It certainly seemed as though they could pull the upset as the Patriots came out a bit stagnant.
That's not great. After the safety, the Patriots kicked a field goal, extending their lead over the Chargers.
The Patriots weathered a last-minute drive from Phillip Rivers to walk away with a 21-13 win over the Chargers and ending LA's three-game winning streak. That allowed the Pats to possess the ball for almost 30 minutes, keeping Philip Rivers and his offense on the sideline. Down 18-13, the Bolts elected to go for a two-point conversion, but failed. But the team that was only 2-of-5 within 20 yards of the end zone during last week's victory over the Atlanta Falcons, was only 1-of-4 one week later against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers have a bye next week and visit the Jaguars in Week 10.
