Chargers Vs Patriots Get Ready for Action!
Bill Belicheck, Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots will visit San Diego this season for a big non-conference matchup on Sunday, December 7th. In a league known for parity the Patriots have dominated the AFC East for more than a decade behind the quarterback play of Brady and the leadership of Belicheck. Last season the Patriots made another run to the AFC title game, losing 26-16 to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Denver.
The key for the Patriots this season is the health of a handful of superstars, as well as the production of Brady. All Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered an ACL tear last season, but all indications are that the star will be back for week one. Wide Receiver Danny Amendola, who also battled injuries last season, will be back to form a very good combination with Julian Edelman, who had a breakout season in 2013. Brady had an up and down season in 2013, completing just 60% of his passes, but many pundits feel his struggles at times where more based on injuries at the skill positions. If Brady can regain his typical career form the Patriots offense should be dynamic once again.
Defensively the Patriots made moves to upgrade the secondary, trading for All Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis and signing Brandon Browner, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks. Browner has a four-game suspension to start the season, but once in the lineup he should give the Patriots a significant upgrade at defensive back along with Revis. Chandler Jones had a breakout year in his third season, with 11.5 sacks. He leads an underrated Patriots pass rush. The Patriots will also have nose tackle Vince Wilfork back from an injury that ended his season last year. The veteran is one of the best run-stuffing nose tackles in football.
