Patriots capitalize on Chargers' mistakes in victory

3 things Patriots fans should know about Chargers

It's too easy, and really does no good to use Julian Edelman's absence for the excuse as to why the Patriots have been so awful in the red zone as of late.

It was not very pretty, but the New England Patriots will take it.

Bosa has 8.5 sacks through the Chargers' first eight games of the 2017 season.

Kickoff coverage and punt coverage units - The Patriots won the "hidden yardage" game decisively, as their average starting point was their own 30-yard line, while the Chargers was their own 20.

The Chargers' Melvin Gordon ran for 132 of their total 157 rushing yards, including an 87-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He has 378 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

Microsoft up after Q1 beats, achieves $20B Cloud goal
Revenue from Azure, Microsoft's cloud computing service, grew 90 percent during the fiscal first quarter. Shares of the world's largest software company rose 3.1 percent to $81.20 in trading after the bell.

Tom Brady (he's 40, you know) had a solid game aside from his offense's troubles in the red zone, completing 32 of his 47 passes for 333 yards, while nimbly avoiding Chargers pressure the bulk of the contest. After talking with trainers and appearing to be in pain on the sideline, Hogan left for the locker room. Among the actual Patriots wide receivers, Chris Hogan caught five passes for 60 yards. Cue the speculation music.

As Benjamin recovered it, he ran backward to avoid the Patriots defenders and into his own end zone where he was tackled for a safety. That turned a 7-7 tie into a 9-7 New England lead, and the Patriots then marched to a field goal after the ensuing free kick.

After Gostkowski's final field goal, the Chargers had a chance in the final 62 seconds.

The Chargers made a last-minute press down the field with the score at 21-13, setting up the final play of the game with one second left on the clock at the Patriots' 23-yard line.
