    The Offensive Line. Did you see the pancake block Mankins made on Castillo on Faulk's 2 point conversion? - plus no sacks given up on Brady.

    Honorable mention - Troy Brown.

    I agree. Huge day for the line. Wish they were able to run it a bit, though. Will be huge next week.

    Tough choice... Everyone stepped up when they needed too... Offensive line did great though... Reche did excellent... Defense did ok... The rookie kicker stepped up when he needed to with the game winning FG...

    How about Reche, for recovering that fumble, scoring a touchdown and that clutch catch leading to the field goal? I'm having a hard time choosing between him and Troy Brown.

    Like any other great Pats win, you can't single out anyone for a game ball. You can't single out Caldwell or Brown more than you can Gaffney, you can't single out the O line more than special teams.

    Special teams and QB were the only areas of the game where we had the upper hand, IMHO.

    I can't pick one player today, this was the definition of team effort, EVERYONE made plays, special teams, defense, offense you name it we got a big play from everyone. People can talk about how many pro bowlers the Chargers have, well there isn't a TEAM i'd rather have than the guys we have, they just make plays when needed to.

    I definitely DON'T pick the OL, and if I had to focus on a player or two I'd go with the receivers or...

    JAMES. F-ing. SANDERS.

    Sander has played extremely well.

    I would have loved to hear BB post game speech to the team in the lockerroom. I wonder what he said to the team and who he applauded..

    Sanders played a great game. I liked Pees sending him on the blitz one time and then sending Hawkins on another.

    Vrabel had a heckuva game despite playing in a lot of pain. Hobbs had a great game and showed tremendous grit. Colvin was outstanding, catching a tipped ball like a receiver. Terrific team effort.

    If the O-line gets one, Mankins has to give his back after 3 penalties.

    True team W when there are so many candidates for a game ball. Troy, Colvin, Gaffney, Caldwell, Asante, Hobbs, Sanders, Chad Scott!

    Marty.

    Fake . . . the O-line. Brady had 51 attempts and was given time against the 61 sack Chargers. Outstanding work.

    OL for sure. Lots of others get a mention, especially Troy Brown, but Brady was barely touched by a defense with 61 sacks on the season.

    No way! The Patriots offensive line could not generate any push whatsoever in the running game and Tom Brady was constantly harassed in the pocket.

    The O-Line in the second half. Give jabbar a lot of credit for his back to back 100 yard games. Not bad for a midseason pick-up.

    And the DBs played one of their best games!

    I hope you were kidding. Ellils had some nice plays but Rivers really picked on him the majority of the game.

    Sanders, Vrabel, Colvin

    We played the most potent offense in football.

    Up until Troy forced the fumble, I was thinking that Faulk was pretty darn key. . . the hurry up drive, and he was in a whole lot in the 3rd and 4th, and the two point conversion.

    It was a team victory but I would say Special Teams. That is what kept us in the game early, Lonnie, Sauerbrun, and the Ghost played excellent. Plus Spann had that hit on the punt returner to knock him from the ball to be recovered later. Great heads up play.
