By Mike Shalin Published 4:04 pm PST, Saturday, January 12, 2019 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — His coach downplays it. Tom Brady does not. Brady knows the cold-weather New England Patriots should have an advantage when they host the warm-weather Los Angeles Chargers in Sunday’s AFC divisional-round game. Hours before, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said, “We’re playing the Chargers. We’re not playing the weather — whatever it is, it is. We’re going to be on the same field” when asked about having no advantage. His quarterback made it clear this team is quite comfortable in the expected chilly conditions. New England will apparently dodge the snowstorm that’s making its way to the East Coast, but it will be cold. It’s the kind of cold the Patriots, who are seeking their eighth straight trip to the AFC title game and a sixth Super Bowl title in the Brady era, know well. “I just think the ability to practice in … [Read more...] about Tom Brady ready for cold weather, Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday
The second-seeded Patriots are set to host the fifth-seeded Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC divisional round Sunday at 1 p.m. Boston.com chatted with Sam Fortier, who grew up in New England and now covers the Chargers for The Athletic. The topics ranged from L.A. football culture to the weather forecast to Philip Rivers’s growth – and of course there’s a prediction at the end. Boston.com: In some ways, this is a Boston-Los Angeles matchup, but in some ways it’s not at all. Do you feel like the city of L.A. is embracing this team, or is there not much buzz in the area? The Athletic: Not too much buzz yet because the Chargers are still second-class citizens in Los Angeles. The Rams got here first. They’ve had more success. They have a more innovative, offensive-minded head coach and, as you can see right now, that’s kind of where the NFL is headed. They have more star power in Todd Gurley, Ndamakong Suh, and Aaron Donald, and they were part of that … [Read more...] about 9 questions with Los Angeles Chargers beat writer Sam Fortier
David Ginsburg Associated Press Published 6:48 PM EST Jan 6, 2019 Baltimore — The Los Angeles Chargers kept Lamar Jackson grounded, and by the time the rookie got the passing game going it was too late for the Baltimore Ravens. Michael Badgley kicked five field goals, and Los Angeles harassed and hounded Jackson during a 23-17 victory Sunday in the opening round of the NFL playoffs. The Chargers (13-4) will next face the second-seeded New England Patriots (11-5) on the road Sunday. The Chargers last won two games during a single postseason in 2007, when the franchise was in San Diego. Of course, going deep in the playoffs are old hat for the Patriots. “Yeah, I mean, gosh, we know the run they’ve had,” Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said. “It seems like forever. They’re always in these games and games beyond.” Rivers went 22 for 32 for 160 yards for Los Angeles, providing just enough offense to help the Chargers get even for a 22-10 … [Read more...] about Los Angeles Chargers hold off Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
