The Patriots’ 27-24 victory over the Chargers has gotten a lot of attention on Twitter.
On Sunday in Los Angeles, the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Chargers 27-24 to improve to 4-4.
Mac Jones, a rookie quarterback, didn’t have his greatest game, completing 18 of 35 passes for 218 yards and no touchdowns, but he avoided the costly errors that could have ruined a solid defensive effort.
Bill Belichick and the Patriots defense are still in control of Chargers standout Justin Herbert. The Patriots’ defense did well against the reigning Rookie of the Year in 2020, befuddling him en route to a 45-0 blowout victory.
Herbert threw 18 passes on 35 attempts for 223 yards and two interceptions, a season low. Although Herbert threw two touchdown passes, the last one came late in the game, when the game was already settled.
On 23 carries, Patriots running back Damien Harris gained 80 yards and a touchdown. Three good runs were also called back due to penalties. With three receptions for 60 yards, wide receiver Nelson Agholor, who had been criticized for his lackluster play, had perhaps his best game of the season. Despite the fact that 44 of those yards came on a single reception, Agholor established himself as a more potent weapon on Sunday than he had been all season.
Here’s what the Twitterverse had to say about the Patriots’ victory.

WPRI’s Morey Hershgordon dubbed the Patriots’ triumph a “vintage win.”
After two months, the #Patriots are 4-4 (4-1 in the AFC). It’s time to get your hands dirty and string a couple more together. However, vintage triumphs. Each of the three phases.
