Patriots At Chargers: Patriots Bend But Don't Break As Chargers Take 3-0 Lead

After the Chargers and Patriots exchanged quick punts, Phillip Rivers took advantage of a short field by quickly driving 36 yards before running into the Patriots’ strong red zone defense. Kris Brown made the short kick to put the Chargers up 3-0.

Some curious calls on the ensuing drive, as a surprise pooch kick gave the Patriots great field position. Tom Brady couldn’t do anything with it, though, with two straight incomplete passes on 2nd and 3rd and short stalling the drive.
