We knew it would come down to Brady versus Manning, right?

First of all, mad props to the San Diego Chargers for hanging tough with the Patriots on Sunday. If the Pats aren’t blowing a team out, they’re playing just well enough to win, and the latter was definitely the case on Sunday.

If the Chargers had a healthy LT, Gates, and also Rivers, they might have won that game. But it matters little; the Pats dodged a bullet.

Take that notion and how the Giants gave the Pats all they could handle less than a month ago, and I believe the Giants have a puncher’s chance in the Super Bowl.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the […]
