Pats vs. Chargers

Harrison is out for the season. What a disappointment. His hard hitting play making ability is going to be missed.

I took the following from the Pats Website. Does anyone else get as excited as I do when Tim Dwight gets the ball. He just seems to explode into action.

Among the League Leaders
21 -- The number of receptions by Deion Branch through three games, tops among all AFC receivers. Branch’s reception total is tied for fourth in the NFL.

78 -- The number of completions by Tom Brady through three games in 2005, leading the NFL. Donovan McNabb ranks second with 77 completions.

948 -- The number of passing yards for Brady through three games, ranking second in the NFL. McNabb leads all passers with 964 yards.

43 -- The number of passing first downs earned by Brady through three games, ranking third in the NFL. St. Louis’ Marc Bulger and McNabb are tied for the lead with 45 first downs.

4 -- The number of rushing touchdowns by Corey Dillon through three games, ranking second in the AFC behind San Diegos LaDainian Tomlinson (6 touchdowns). Dillon’s total is tied for third in the NFL with Chicago’s Thomas Jones and Carolina’s Stephen Davis, behind Tomlinson (6) and Seattles Shawn Alexander (5).

11.0 -- The average number of yards per punt return for Tim Dwight (9- 99), ranking second in the AFC.

1 -- The ranking of the Patriots’ pass offense among all AFC teams. New England has averaged 300.3 passing yards per game this season. The Patriots rank second in the NFL, trailing only the Philadelphia Eagles.

1 -- Tom Brady’s ranking among AFC passers in yards (948), completions (78) and passing attempts (123).

BTW, this is interesting. Apparently, there was a time clock issue. That big a change and noone noticed?
