Game Info:

  • Played at Gillette Stadium, Foxboro Mass
  • Starts at Sunday, September 19th, 4:15PM
  • On CBS

Pats Injury Report:

  • Dan Koppen, ankle
  • Mike Wright, concussion

Key Matchups:

  • Chargers Secondary vs Hernandez/Gronk
    • Hernandez and Gronk have the size advantage, but the Chargers are very physical
  • Pats CBs vs Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd
    • A group of big, physical wide receivers will show if Ras-I, Bodden, and McCourty can live up to their hype
  • Dan Connolly vs Antonio Garay
  • Antonio Gates vs Anyone
    • We had problems covering the Dolphin’s Anthony Fasano Monday night, so I wonder first off who covers him and then how they do it

Questions:

  • Can the Pats have an active pass rush?
  • How will McCourty react from the last game?
  • Will Ochocinco show up big in this one?
  • How will the Pats defend Antonio Gates?
  • Will Chung have a big game?

Predictions:

  • Danny Woodhead has a field day
  • The score will not tell the story
  • Defense will be lacking
  • Patriots 34, Chargers 24
