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

Tom Brady once again threw for over 300 yards, but just one touchdown, and the running backs were heavily involved in the passing game.

The Chargers jumped out to a 7-0 lead when Melvin Gordon ripped off an 87-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

A last-minute comeback attempt by the Chargers fell short deep in Patriots territory when Jonathan Jones intercepted a pass intended for Travis Benjamin.

Although an NFC team is hosting the game, the action will be broadcast on CBS when the Texans and Seahawks start on Sunday. Star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and rookie running back D'Onta Foreman , however, went home for the day .

The Chargers probably aren't good enough to overcome coaching and special teams blunders against a team like the Patriots.

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.

The Pats would take on two field goals before the half to take a 15-7 lead to the break.

Down 18-13, the Bolts elected to go for a two-point conversion, but failed. Curiously, especially given the weather conditions, Los Angeles chose to attempt a 51-yard field goal.

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa set a record for most sacks by an NFL player through his first 20 games in the league. The Chargers have a bye next week and visit the Jaguars in Week 10.
