The New England Patriots are one of the best teams in the National Football League, but they need to quickly recover after their last outing. The Patriots lost to the Green Bay Packers and although that is nothing to be ashamed of, if they lose again this week they could be in danger of losing home field advantage in the AFC playoffs. The Denver Broncos beat the Kansas City Chiefs to enter a deadlock with the Pats for the best record, but New England owns the tie breaker.

That could all change if the Patriots lose to the up and coming San Diego Chargers. The Chargers had the most impressive win from a week ago when they came from behind to beat the Baltimore Ravens on the road. The Ravens were nearly unbeatable at home and the Chargers were traveling to the east coast but they overcame every obstacle to get the victory.

The Chargers are powered by Phillip Rivers who is having an outstanding season. His weapons are healthy again and he knows how to come through in the clutch. This was evident in the win against the Ravens when he converted over 80 percent of his third down conversions. The Chargers will be a difficult team to beat at home.
