Brady, Michel And The Patriots Crush Chargers, 41-28!
TB12 is not ready to ride off into the sunset just yet and while he proved AGAIN yesterday why he’s the GOAT, the future of the Patriots looked pretty good, too! Brady threw for 343 yards and a touchdown and rookie running back Sony Michel ran for 129 yards and three TD’s as the Patriots beat down the L.A. Chargers 41-28 to advance to their eighth straight AFC Championship!
They’ll face the Chiefs in Kansas City next Sunday night. Kickoff at 6:40.
The Pats scored on their first four possessions for the first time in team playoff history! their first score came on an 83 yard drive, their longest opening drive to result in a score in the Belichick era!
Julian Edelman hauled in 9 passes for 151 yards and James White tied an NFL playoff record with 15 catches, resulting in 97 yards. It was total dominance!
