Huh? The only way the Chargers were going to get back into this was if the Patriots kept turning the ball over, so they made sure not to do that. No style points in the playoffs. If the Pats needed 55 today, they would've scored 56.Terrible 2nd half just decided to coast to the finish.
Pats have played fine. The refs have been awful.I can't wait until the mouthbreathers and/or trolls look only at this boxscore and the yards and say how badly the Patriots played this half.
Exhibit A why stats are almost useless in football when taken out of context. People have to watch and interpret the games to really know what happened.I can't wait until the mouthbreathers and/or trolls look only at this boxscore and the yards and say how badly the Patriots played this half.
Huh interesting.Right. Blocked kick behind the line of scrimmage can actually be advanced for a first down or the trickier one is that a foul on the non kicking team is not a post-change of possession foul and so it can create a first down for the kicking team.
Meh, any time Shannon Sharpe has an opinion about something, I'll take the opposite side. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/shannon-sharpe-antonio-gates-cheated-the-game/What about the PED suspension?
but they played to the cushion. they could give up 3 scores and still win. why take chances on tight throws that could turn into turnovers? they played the second half wellGreat first 29 minutes
Got beat 21-6 in the second half
Nice to have a cushion to work with
He’s been the king of garbage time stats for years. Back when I still did fantasy football I would always try to draft him for exactly that reason.This is why stats in football can be dumb without context. Everything Rivers has compiled in the 2nd Half is meaningless, yet this game will be cited when someone talks about Rivers having X-number of 300 yard and 3 TD games.
Yeah, Patriots punted three times inside the 40. Once inside the 35 I think.Are you people calling this a terrible 2nd half by the Pats actually serious, or am I missing the sarcasm?
The Pats completely went vanilla for the last 20 minutes of the game. Don't make any mistakes, don't give up any long touchdowns, stay healthy, and let the clock run out.
This game was an ass-kicking of epic proportions from the opening bell to the final whistle. The Chargers were never in it. Not even for a second.
Big Ben is human garbage and I hate him. I hate Eli but he’s one of the only athletes, and I mean he’s one of like maybe three, where I hate him but respect him. He’s a meh QB but he got us twice. At least that’s how I look at it.Yeah the whining is annoying but I like him a million times more then Big Ben & Eli. Not even close.
