The New England Patriots are dominating their divisional playoff game against the Los Angeles Chargers early on. New England scored touchdowns on its first and second possession, and added another one on its third as well to go up 21-7 — showing tremendous offensive rhythm early on during the contest.

The Patriots’ latest scoring series went eight plays and covered 58 yards while taking 3:07 off the clock. The drive’s final play was this 15-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tom Brady to wide receiver Phillip Dorsett:

The catch was Dorsett’s second of the day bringing his yardage total so far to 26. Meanwhile, Brady is slicing through the Chargers’ secondary with little problem: the greatest quarterback of all time is 15 of 19 — one of the incompletions a drop — for 158 yards and the touchdown above.

Furthermore, wide receiver Julian Edelman moved into second place all-time on this drive with his 93rd postseason reception.
