Controlling the line of scrimmage? Pats Def versus Chargers Off. This will be a great matchup. My thoughts are the Pats will outphysical the Chargers and I don't see them getting blown off the ball. The front three I see getting a push. The linebackers I can see getting blown back a couple yards when the rb gets in the 2nd tier. Chargers Def versus Pats Off. This is an interesting matchup. I don't think the Pats O-line is known for blowing people off the ball even though people give accolades to Light and Mankins. I think they're good at times but not overpowering running the ball consistently. And how physical are the two Shawn's? Are they more speed guys or can they blow up a lineman when a runnign play is coming at them. I'd say the matchup is slightly on the Chargers side. What are your thoughts on who is the most physical? I think it will be an extremely physical game whitha slight edge going to the Pats on controlling the line of scrimmage ebcuase of the thee d-linemen.
