Patriots Performers of the Game (Week 8)
The Patriots pulled out an underdog win this past Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers by a score of 27-24. This was their 20th win in their last 23 meetings. Here are the standout performances.
Phillips was by far the player of the game. The defensive swiss army knife recorded 2 picks off of Justin Herbert, returning one for the go ahead touchdown late in the game. The former Charger also picked up 3 tackles.
Judon continues to be one of the best offseason acquisitions. He added a sack and a half to his season total, while also recording 5 QB hits and 10 hurries. One of the most dominant edge rushers has been so much fun to watch in a Patriots uniform.
Harris had the lone touchdown for the offense, and racked up 80 yards on 23 carries. The workhorse would have had another TD and a lot more scrimmage yards if it weren't for two big plays getting called back for holding.
Mr. Consistent keeps on drilling kicks. Folk went 4/4 on field goals with a long of 48 and converted his only XP attempt. He has really been making me eat my slander from last year.
New England travels cross country for a 1 p.m. matchup with the Carolina Panthers this coming Sunday.
