Defensive Indifference, Bolts Strike 41-17
They looked anything but World Champions today. The New England Patriots, perhaps suffering the first effects of a decimated defense, were dominated by a crisp San Diego Charger unit in an embarrassing 41-17 home loss. The Patriots (2-2) gave up big gains to areas of the field normarlly prowled by Tedy Bruschi and Ted Johnson: both key losses for 2005. The loss snapped a 21-game home win streak (including playoffs).
Tom Brady passed for over 200 yards in the first half, but did little else in the remainder of the game as the Patriots are now forced to look ahead to another tough road assignment: The Atlanta Falcons and Michael Vick.
