3 things we learned in the Patriots win over the Chargers

WATCH: Chargers' Travis Benjamin runs one of the worst punt returns in NFL history

It's worth noting that the Chargers began the game by trying to kick a 51-yard field goal instead of going for a fourth-and-1.

Gifted a short field, the Patriots managed to go three-and-out, however. Coming into the game, New England had scored on 53.33 percent of their red zone visits in 2017, only 16th-best in the league.

Hogan has 33 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns this season.

The Chargers' Melvin Gordon ran for 132 of their total 157 rushing yards, including an 87-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. After touching the punt at his own 11-yard line and scooping up the ball at the 8-yard line, Benjamin chose to run backwards to create some separation.

Stoppage-time goal lifts Watford past Arsenal
Arsenal have been handed a triple injury boost ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash against Watford at Vicarage Road. "It's too early to change".

The Chargers made a last-minute press down the field with the score at 21-13, setting up the final play of the game with one second left on the clock at the Patriots' 23-yard line. Adding insult to injury for the Chargers was the fact they committed holding on the return, a penalty which was obviously declined. Gordon gets a much needed bye week in Week 9 as he's now dealt with knee, foot and toe injuries over the first half of the season.

The safe guess here is that Chargers punt returner Travis Benjamin won't be repeating as AFC special teams player of the week after this game.

New England will receive the second half kickoff.
