Los Angeles Chargers vs. New England Patriots – Sunday, January 13th
When: 1:05 pm ET
Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts
Stream: CBS Sports, NFL Game Pass
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers got the job done against the Ravens this past Sunday pretty effectively. However, they had a pretty big advantage on offense heading into that contest. Albeit their offense was still able to perform against one of the best defenses in the NFL, which was just what LA needed to get the win. Now the Chargers face another worthwhile challenge in the Pats’ defense this upcoming Sunday. The Pats finished 7th in the NFL in scoring but gave up plenty of yardage throughout the season. If they employ similar strategy this weekend, it will be up to Los Angeles’ red zone offense to get the win. Fortunately the Chargers have two of the best backs in the playoffs and should be ready for this specific challenge.
Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (4,308 passing yards, 32 TD, 12 INT), Melvin Gordon (885 rushing yards, 10 TD, 0 F), and Keenan Allen (1,196 receiving yards, 6 TD, 97 REC).
New England Patriots
The Pats are extremely confident about this matchup, given that they’ll be playing at home. It’s almost impossible to beat Brady in Foxborough, especially when playing in January. The Pats come in with one of the best offenses in the NFL, seeing as how they finished 4th in scoring, 5th in total offense, 8th in passing and 5th in rushing. The Chargers haven’t averaged better numbers than those this season but there’s no denying that Los Angeles can go punch for punch with New England.
Players to Watch: Tom Brady (4,335 passing yards, 29 TD, 11 INT), Sony Michel (931 rushing yards, 6 TD, 1 F), and Julian Edelman (850 receiving yards, 6 TD, 74 REC).
