Los Angeles Chargers hang tough, but fall to Patriots in Foxborough

On Sunday, the 25 percent success rate will help highlight an issue that will need focus during the upcoming bye week, a red zone offense that has, suddenly, become the question mark on this team that the much-maligned defense had been over the season's first handful of games. Left with just 1:08 and no time outs, Rivers led his team all the way down to the Patriots' 23-yard line.

New England has now won four straight games.

Hogan has 33 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns this season.

Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa's second-quarter sack of the Patriots' Tom Brady was the 19th of his two-year NFL career, setting a record for most sacks by a player through his first 20 games in the league. Last week, he scored six points for the Chargers via a 65-yard touchdown return.

As Benjamin recovered it, he ran backward to avoid the Patriots defenders and into his own end zone where he was tackled for a safety.

Here are ten reasons why they are in fact the greatest team.

A last-minute comeback attempt by the Chargers fell short deep in Patriots territory when Jonathan Jones intercepted a pass intended for Travis Benjamin. With the double-score in mind, Brady hurried the Patriots down field in time for Gostkowski to connect on a 36-yard field goal with 24 seconds to go in the half.
