BB and Brady at home
Sadly I expect the Pats to win
Chargers are 8-1 on the road and have the talent advantage
I think NE’s reign ends here
I spent a large portion of the morning participating in a group chat with a bunch of Pats fans, discussing who we should be rooting for today. We all settled on the Chargers since: 1. We struggle with running QBs and 2. the Ravens seem immune to our home field advantage. Happy with this outcome but I just don't think the team has enough this year, but they do have Brady & Belichick so I will obviously never count them out.
Looking forward to next Sunday.
Sunny but fairly cold (28 F) is the weather forecast next Sunday for those wondering.
Chargers have more talent but after what I saw today when they did everything to throw away this game...
pats should be happy about this one
they always struggle with the ravens
Chargers- better roster, great road team, play better outside of California. They literally have not lost a game outside of California this year (3 'home' losses and the 1 in their 7-1 road record was at the LA Coliseum.)
Other then Brady/Belichick, the Pats don't have any real roster advantages over the Chargers.
The only thing on NE's side is playing at home, (Brady has only 3 true road playoff wins in his career- 2 of them if you count Bledsoe's 2001 AFC-CG cameo) and their past. The Pats' mystique and aura, esp. at home, seems to be their greatest strength.
If the Bolts can win at Pittsburgh/Arrowhead/Seattle/Baltimore..... I don't think they'll be afraid of Gillette Stadium.
Chargers, as they did a decade ago at Indy, pull the early Sunday road upset.
I would love the Chargers pretty easily in this game if they had early season Melvin Gordon who looked like he was shot out of a cannon every time he touched the ball. The injuries have caught up with him and he looks slower.
I still like the Chargers to win, but it's close.
Although keep in mind 2 of their signature wins did come with Gordon- at KC/Pittsburgh.
Remember, the Pats couldn't stop the run even without James Conner, so Justin Jackson could pull a Jaylen Samuels.
accidentally voted chargers
San Diego is the better team but it's just so hard to trust them.
They have all the pieces to beat New England.
I'm fairly confident. The bye week should help.
Chargers are a very good team, but I like the home field advantage.
Pats just don't lose these type of games at home.
Pats will win 27-20
New England with the home field advantage
She is wrong (not that weather forecasts 7 days out are 100% reliable).
As a neutral I just want Rivers to win a ring so bad, he has been a so good for so long and seems to be a top-notch pro. Give the guy a ring already!
Chargers. I think they'll learn from today's experience and tighten up their game in anticipation for Brady.
**** the Pats.
going from lamar jackson to tom brady is going to be quite a change for the chargers
Chargers have been puking on themselves for years over a decade. How could you honestly think they are going to learn now?
Pats at home get the job done.
Chargers are going to have to close much better than they did today
Because the Pats aren't what they used to be. At some point, dynasties stop being dynastic all the time.
Pats were still undefeated at home though and the Chargers are still the Chargers.
I’m picking Pats either way since they’re clearly a different team at home (8-0) than on the road but if it’s cold and snowy that’s just another advantage for them...
