The Patriots' bye week could not come at a better time as the Hogan injury is one of many the club has sustained over the first half of the season.

Brady, who threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Gronkowski, recorded his 81st career 300-yard game and his fifth this season, which matches his total of past year.

The Chargers had their chances, but they went 3-for-10 on third downs while allowing the Patriots to convert nine times on third down. "We can't do anything about it now".

On that return, Travis Benjamin made a boneheaded play, fielding the punt and reversing field all the way back toward his own end zone. It didn't work. He ended up getting tackled in his own end zone for a Patriots safety. - Patriots coach Bill Belichick on if he minds the defense taking the lead over the past four wins as the offense has struggled in the red zone. Brady was 32 of 47 for 33 yards and the touchdown.

Rivers finished the day 17 of 30 for 212 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

In the second quarter, Benjamin fielded a punt, but bobbled the ball as he caught it. But Rivers' pass with 1 second remaining was intercepted at the goal line by Jonathan Jones. "It was one of those things where we knew we didn't want to give up a score".

"We just wanted to come out here and play for him", linebacker Kyle Van Noy said.

After a touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski tied the game, the Chargers went three-and-out before forcing a punt.

In addition to the safety, the Chargers were guilty of numerous other mistakes, including having two touchdowns called back. "We'll definitely go back and look at it and make those corrections". Also, when Cannon left the game late in the second quarter with an ankle injury, Waddle stepped in and the unit didn't break stride.

Gordon's 87-yard touchdown matched the longest run in Chargers history.
