    The Result
    Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention. I’ve just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. The San Diego Chargers came out firing from the very first play which was a 48 yard pass completion right through out the game as they routed the New England Patriots 30-10 Sunday Night at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA.
    It was if San Diego said we’re gonna straight-up murder your *** and they did it. It was a straight shot. Right to the baby maker.
    The Chargers were just dominant all night in all three phases of the game and were clearly the better team. Offensive San Diego just took it to New England they had pass completions of 48 yards, 10 yards, 14 yards, 49 yards (TD to Malcom Floyd), 14 yards, 18 yards, 59 yards and a 32 yard pass interference penalty that gave them 1st and goal at the Patriots 1. Plus shorter TD catches of 4 yards to Vincent Jackson and 1 yard to Antonio Gates. Nate Kaeding also had 3 field goals of 25, 35 and 23 yards. It escalated quickly and got outta hand really fast and before you knew it the game was out of reach.
    Defensively the Chargers played very aggressively getting after Matt Cassel with blitzes which forced him to hurry or resulted in sacks. They also forced Cassel into fumbling once which New England recovered and one bad interception in deep in his own territory that led to a Chargers field goal.
    On special teams New England was only average not generating good kick off returns and giving up too many yards on punt returns to Darren Sproles and then adding to one return with a 15 yard face masking penalty.
    Maybe the Patriots were distracted by the Charger Girls pointing to their boobies. Anyway, In the end the Chargers were the ones who went to Pleasure Town.

    Offensive Player of the Game

    Chargers QB Philip Rivers was 18 for 27 for 306 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs
    Defensive Player of the Game
    Patriots CB Deltha O’Neal who was burned for pass plays of 48, 49 (TD) and 18 yards as well as an illegal contact penalty that gave San Diego another first down. (/sarcasm)
    Turning Point(s) of the Game
    There were several key plays but the biggest was the series that saw San Diego stop New England on 4 tries at the end zone from the one yard line and then went 98 yards the other way and scored and turned what could have been a one possesion game into a blow out.

    Offensive Leaders/Notes

    In addition to Rivers, Chargers WR Vincent Jackson had 5 catches for 134 yards and a TD and Malcom Floyd had 3 catches for 75 yards and a TD...
    Defensive Leaders/Notes

    Chargers LB and Wareham MA native Stephen Cooper had 10 tackles as did Safety Eric Weddle...

    Coaching Decisions
    • NE - 4th/goal at SD 1 Cassel is stopped short and they turn ball over on downs
    • SD - Challenges whether there was a fumble recovery on pass to Moss in 4th quarter - upheld
    The Officials
    • Bill Leavy was the referee.
    • Missed push off by SD TE Antonio Gates on Rodney Harrison who makes a 14 yard catch for 1st down in first quarter
    Game Notes
    • The Chargers chose to wear their alternate powder blue jersey tonight. NFL teams with alternate jerseys can elect to wear them twice during the season. The Chargers have now won their last six games and seven of their last eight in the powder blue uniforms. The Patriots wore their traditional white road jersey.

    Could have been a lot worse too.
    Gates dropped a TD, Kaeding botched a FG, and Turner took his foot off the pedal in the 2nd half.

    Boo frickin hoo. There was contact on both sides and Gates took advantage of that. It was the right no call.

    There were no missed calls that were game changing.
