🏈Gunning for it: In a must-win game, the Pats got off to a fast start and never looked back, shutting out the LA Chargers 45–0. The best moments of the game?

  • WR Gunner Olszewski earning his first two career TDs with a 70-yard punt return and a 38-yard receiving TD.
     
  • Special teams coming up big with this blocked field goal, which turned into a TD.
     
  • The defense utterly eliminating the effectiveness of Charger rookie QB Justin Herbert, intercepting him twice after he threw only seven interceptions on the season coming into this game.
     
  • And last but not least, QB Cam Newton running for two TDs. That LA sunshine’s doing the Pats some good!

⚽️The end of it all: The Revolution’s hopes to become the latest Boston team to win a championship were dashed yesterday at the hands feet of Columbus Crew SC. Revs’ goalkeeper Matt Turner made big save after big save, but the Revs couldn’t live up to Bruin David Pastrňák’s pregame prediction.
