Best Of Social Media: Week 13 Patriots vs ChargersKirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots began their west coast swing on Sunday against the 3-8 Los Angeles Chargers looking to return to .500 on the season for the first time since week four.

The matchup marked the first meeting between the two franchises for the first time since the 2018 AFC Divisional round in Foxboro.

Take a look at all the best sights and sounds from social media throughout the game below.

 

In the first quarter, the Patriots scored on their first possession of the contest and an early lead thanks to a Cam Newton dive into the end zone at the goal line. 7-0 Patriots after a quarter of play.

 

In the second quarter, Gunner Olszewski got his revenge after having a previous punt return called back on a penalty last week.

Olszewski ran this punt back 70 yards for his first career NFL touchdown and a 14-0 Patriots lead early in the second quarter.

Meanwhile on defense, the Patriots shut down Chargers rookie quarterback Justin Herbert thanks to plays like this one by Josh Uche.

The following drive saw the Patriots push their lead to three touchdowns.

A Cam Newton two-yard rushing score gave the Patriots a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter.

With the clock winding down on the first half, the Chargers attempted their to get their first points of the game on a 58-yard field goal attempt.

Instead the Patriots special teams unit again punished the Chargers.

A Devin McCourty 44 yard return of blocked field goal gave the Patriots a stunning 28-0 lead at halftime.

The turnover set the Patriots offense up to score once again as Cam Newton would later find N’Keal Harry for six and an unprecedented 35-0 lead in Southern California.

In the fourth quarter, Gunner Olszewski continued his career day as the Chargers special teams unit continued to struggle on all phases.

With the game well out of reach, Jarrett Stidham took over for Newton but the points kept coming for the Patriots.

A Nick Folk 32 yard field goal and a Gunner Olszewski 38 touchdown pass from Stidham put the icing on the victory cake for the Patriots dominating blowout victory.

The Patriots would return to .500 (6-6) in 2020 as they prepare to move on quickly as a Super Bowl rematch with the Los Angeles Rams looms on Thursday night, also at Sofi Stadium.
