After their most dominant win this year against the New York Jets, the Patriots head off to face the Chargers. The Patriots beat the Jets 54-13, the most points they’ve scored this season. That same kind of offensive output will be needed against the Los Angeles Chargers. If New England wants to fight for the top of the AFC East, a win over the Chargers is needed.

The Chargers won’t be going down without a fight though. An uncharacteristic loss to the Ravens left a bad taste in the Chargers’ mouth and they want it washed out. They have to remember that they’re facing one of the best coaches in NFL history, Bill Belichick. Can they outplay the coaching mind of Belichick on Sunday?

New England Patriots vs. Los Angeles Chargers Preview

New England had an incredible win over the Jets, but we have to remember it was the Jets. The same kind of 54-point outing likely won’t happen against the Chargers. Still, the Patriots need to find a way to put points on the board against Los Angeles. If that means following the same format as they did against the Jets, that’s perfectly fine.

Mac Jones was rather impressive that game, throwing for over three hundred yards and two touchdowns. If he can have a similar performance the Patriots will be in great shape. However, we’ve seen Mac Jones regress before, this is something he’ll need to avoid. The other question for New England is how their defense will hold up.

After losing 34-6 to the Baltimore Ravens, the Chargers are ready to hit the field. Luckily, coming off the bye week they’ll be at home hosting the Patriots. It’ll make it much easier for them to get the ball rolling again by playing at home. Hopefully, in the bye week, they addressed some of the offensive problems that plagued them against Baltimore.

With Justin Herbert at the helm, the Chargers are in great shape to win this one. Still, they have to be mindful of how good the Patriots can be. Bill Belichick is great at coming up with schemes to stop high-powered offenses. If the Chargers aren’t careful, they could find themselves working against the clock.

Patriots vs. Chargers Predictions (NFL Week 8)

Patriots 21 - Chargers 24

New England is actually a pretty great pick in this game. When looking at their losses to the Cowboys and Buccaneers, the score remained relatively close. Although the Chargers have a great offense, Bill Belichick is great at limiting offensive possessions. More than likely, the Patriots will focus on controlling the time of possession.

On average, the New England Patriots hold the ball for nearly thirty minutes per game. By doing this, they control the pace of the game and limit their opposition’s time on the field. The Chargers won’t be able to score many points if they barely see the field. This is why we’ll take the New England Patriots +5.5 in this one.

EXTRA POINTS

1. New England has a 9-1 record against the Los Angeles Chargers.

2. In their last three meetings, the New England Patriots are 3-0.

3. These two teams faced off in 2020 and the Patriots won 45-0.
