Philip Rivers' efficiency is improved, but it's not resulting in enough points

Philip Rivers' efficiency is improved, but it's not resulting in enough points”

It bounced back perfectly and into his waiting hands.

FIRST-HALF PROWESS:Despite a pair of home losses, the Patriots are again one of the NFL's best teams as they reach the halfway point of the regular season. Stephen Gostkowski had his worst week of the season, missing two field goals from inside 40 yards.

That's Brady's most wins without a loss against any opposing quarterback.

New England got its lone touchdown via a 2-yard toss from Brady to Rob Gronkowski in the second quarter. The Patriots always find ways to win, and they continued to show that with a saftey and four field goals. The defense, which gave up 30 or more points three times in their first four games, has given up just 51 points total over its last four. It has been buoyed during that stretch mostly by a defense that will have to finish the season without captain Dont'a Hightower, who suffered a torn pectoral muscle in his shoulder in last week's win over Atlanta.

"We just talked about it, and we want to come back hungrier than ever, a little fresher, and go into the third quarter [of the] season and we know it is moving time for us", Lynn said. "So you can be sure that anybody that should be listed on the injury report will be". The only touch down that the Chargers scored was on a 87-yard run by Melvin Gordon that opened up the scoring in the first quarter. But the rest of the game was marked by Los Angeles' mistakes and inability to move the ball offensively. But Rivers' pass with 1 second remaining was intercepted at the goal line by Jonathan Jones. He was corralled by a Patriots group that included Brandon King, Matt Slater and Jones, then finally wrapped up by King and tackled in the end zone for a safety.

"Something you can take from it is - there's no participation trophies, but we're right there", he said. Bosa has 19 sacks in 20 games, the most sacks by a player in his first 20 games to begin a career since the sack became an official stat in 1982.

Chargers: LB Hayes Pullard left the field after a collision late in the fourth quarter. That is tied with New Orleans' Drew Brees for the most such games with a single team in National Football League history.

After losing two of its first four games, New England has won four straight games. "It would have been nice to have gotten back to.500 with eight left to play, but we fought our way back to at least give ourselves a chance in the second half". "But certainly, everything is still in front of us".

When the offense couldn't get into the end zone, the Patriots defense went to work by holding the Chargers to 13 total points.

Gordon's 87-yard touchdown matched the longest run in Chargers history. In those four games, he has completed 78 of 136 passes (57.3 percent) for 921 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions.
