Why Patriots should be concerned about Chargers for divisional round

Why Patriots should be concerned about Chargers for divisional round

The New England Patriots haven't looked like the dominating force they've been for over a decade, and neither has 41-year-old quarterback Tom Brady. We're playing the Chargers. We're not playing the weather - whatever it is, it is.

"We love ball, we like playing football, we like competing and we know going into Foxborough, they're undefeated there and they're tough to beat, period". His quarterback made it clear this team is quite comfortable in the expected chilly conditions.

The Patriots (11-5), who captured their 10th straight AFC East title this season, will be seeking their eighth consecutive trip to the AFC title game. "I just try to go out there and lead by example, and you tell [teammates] here and there what it's about".

We've seen in the unlikeliest of opponents this year in the carve up New England's defense in the run game, whether it be Frank Gore, Jaylen Samuels, etc.

Thursday provided the home team with much of what this area has to offer in early January.

"Nice", Brady said of the impending footnote. He played 28 games for the Houston Texans the last two years, racking up 36 catches, 435 yards, and two touchdowns.

"She just kept bleeding from her stomach, and when they tried to feed her, it wasn't good for her liver", he said. "No matter where I am, I still think about her".

Manolas has a £30.75million release clause in his contract with the Italian club but it does not become active until the summer. He is now expected to be on his way to Manchester United academy where he will continue his football career under Nicky Buti.

Good luck today, Philip Rivers and Co. "I'm just happy I'm still able to play this game". "We've got a heck of a challenge". But are you going to bet against them playing Foxborough?

Brady is 7-0 as a starter against Rivers. The only time Rivers has beaten New England was in 2008 when Brady was injured and Matt Cassel was at QB.

The Chargers are facing a Patriots team that is 8-0 in Gillette Stadium this season.

"This is why you play", he said.

If that doesn't get Patriots fans hype, I can't help them.

Since coming back from a torn ACL last year and a four-game suspension to open the year, Edelman was very productive.
