2019 NFL Playoffs: Live 2-minute Patriots vs. Chargers Preview

Welcome to the Pats Pulpit Live 2-Minute Preview as the Patriots host the Chargers in this weekend's Divisional Round Match Up! Don't forget to tune in after the game on Sunday for the Pats Pulpit Live Postgame Show as well!

Posted by Pats Pulpit: For New England Patriots News on Thursday, January 10, 2019

On this week’s playoff edition of the Pats Pulpit Live 2-minute Preview:

  • So much has been made about the Los Angeles Chargers’ utilization of dime defense (the highest percentage of any team in the NFL this season), that it wouldn’t be surprising to see the New England Patriots force their hand and make them play out of their base or big nickel packages to defend against heavier offensive personnel.
  • Rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson’s stellar play is going to have to continue as match ups with the the Chargers’ Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams await him on Sunday afternoon.
  • Jackson isn’t the only Patriots defensive undrafted rookie free agent who can make a huge impact on Sunday’s playoff tilt.

Thanks for following along, and we’ll see you all on Sunday for the Pats Pulpit Live Postgame Show!
