NFL Sunday Night Week 6 Picks: New England Patriots vs. San Diego Chargers
Posted By Jones On October 6, 2008 @ 5:50 pm In Sports | No Comments
Both of these teams made cross country trips last week, with opposite degrees of success.� The New England Patriots, coming off a bye week and still getting over the loss of Tom Brady, traveled to California to take on the 49ers.� The Patriots coaching staff showed that with two weeks to plan they can come up with a successful game plan against a team that really thought they�d be able to get a home win.� The Patriots got their first franchise win in San Francisco, knocking off the Niners 30-21.� The Chargers on the other hand traveled to Miami to take on a Dolphins team that was 1-2, but with their win coming against the Patriots.� While it wasn�t pretty, the Dolphins were able to ruin the Chargers cross country trip with a 17-10 win.� For a team that was predicted to be a Super Bowl threat, things aren�t looking well for the Chargers, as they see their record dip to 2-3.�
It�s hard to imagine that in week six, fans would be calling for a must win game, but that appears to be the case as the Chargers need to quickly turn around their season if they want to make a name for themselves in the playoff hunt.� It�s been hard of course, with LaDainian Tomlinson struggling with a nagging toe injury, and the rumors of he�s lost a step.� Also, there is a report that Tomlinson added more injury to the toe in the Miami loss when a defender stepped on it during one of his runs.� LT has only broke the 100 yard barrier once this year, and against the D of New England and the injury, things aren�t looking good for him.
The Line is currently even, but things are looking good for the Patriots in my estimation.� Despite their new quarterback, the team won�t be worried about playing on the road, and in their minds it would seem they have nothing to lose while the Chargers are on the verge of heading to 2-4 with no safe spots in their schedule in sight.� I like the Patriots in this one purely because of the swing of momentum heading in two entirely different ways.
