With the current state of the NFL, actual football is rather slow these days. Many threads have been made regarding your favorite Patriots games, but what do you think has been the Patriots ugliest win in the Brady-Belichick Era. I realize that "ugly" in the football sense can have many meanings (game they had no right winning, penalty filled game, worst defensive game, worst offensive game, most boring game), so I'll leave that up to you. What game was the ugliest win in terms of your definition of ugly. I would strongly consider the 2010 Patriots - Chargers game to be their ugliest win. I chose this game for the following reasons....... 1.) The loss appeared to be more a result of the Chargers playing poorly than the Pats playing well. (P.Rivers backwards lateral recovered by Pats, Chargers wide receiver spiking the ball after the catch even though he had not been downed). Those were mental errors, not great defense. [side note: McCourty's pick - well that was great defense] 2.) Near disaster. Dispite the Chargers playing terrible, they had a furious rally in the fourth quarter that only Kris Brown could ruin. 3.) No offensive rhythm - The offense was in a funk all day. With the exception of 1 long TD drive, their points were all basically setup by turnovers. Oh, and that one long TD drive was helped by a Chargers personal foul. Again - mental mistake by the Chargers instead of good play by the Pats.
