ReFo: Patriots @ Chargers, Week 14 - Ben Stockwell
Playing well since his return to the starting lineup, this night could have been even better for Ingram but he struggled to replicate his strong first half showing after the break. His four stops tie a career high set in Week 2 and it was a run defender that he had most of his joy taking over blocks against whoever came to get him, setting plays up for himself and others.

Chargers' offensive line can't match defense's effort - Eric Williams
"We have to do a better job communicating as a whole group," Watt said. "I have to do a better job of communicating, and I didn't do that tonight. That's on me. I'll take the blame for that. I've got to get everyone on the same page. We've got to do a better job as an offensive line."

Teams Need More Than Playoff Miracles - Mike Tanier (b/r)
Watt got picked on by linebacker Jamie Collins and other Patriots defenders all night. Philip Rivers had one of his semi-regular heart-to-heart shouts with the rookie after one particularly grievous act of Collins admittance. By the fourth quarter, Watt could usually be found on the ground as Rivers scrambled in search of—you guessed it—some sort of miracle.

Audibles at the Line: Week 14 - Andrew Potter
Aaron Schatz: Donald Brown blown block just got a Mike Scifres punt blocked, and Scifres is being taken away on the cart in a LOT of pain. Goddammit, Donald.

What was Chargers coach Mike McCoy thinking? - Matt Calkins (UT$)
The Chargers, down by nine with 6:28 to play, had the ball on fourth and 4 from the 50 and then...inexplicably -- they punted the ball away. And anybody watching knew that they'd just punted the game away, too.
