7 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

Rivers' style of play - resembling in some ways that of his counterpart Sunday - is a relative rarity in an NFL where mobile quarterbacks have become the norm.

7 monthes ago   |   By NESN

Rob Gronkowski caught one pass Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, ultimately rumbling his way to a 25-yard gain, delighting more than 60,000 New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

The New England Patriots might be playing mind games with the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Patriots will host the Chargers on Sunday in an AFC Divisional Round matchup that will be played in sup-freezing temperatures. And if the Chargers didn't know that before , they sure do now, thanks to a thermometer taped to a wall that Philip Rivers and Co. will run by when they take the field.
Sounds fishy if you ask us.
