Travis Benjamin's Punt Return Results In Embarrassing Safety

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa set a record for most sacks by an NFL player through his first 20 games in the league. On Sunday, the 25 percent success rate will help highlight an issue that will need focus during the upcoming bye week, a red zone offense that has, suddenly, become the question mark on this team that the much-maligned defense had been over the season's first handful of games.

New England has now won four straight games. This week, he scored two points for the Chargers' opponent by running eight or so yards in the wrong direction. Tom Brady engineered a 14-play, 77-yard drive - complete with three third-down conversions - getting within a point on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Rob Gronkowski and tying the game on Stephen Gostkowski's PAT at 7-7. Rex Burkhead had seven catches for 68 yeards, while James White caught five balls for 85 yards. After talking with trainers and appearing to be in pain on the sideline, Hogan left for the locker room.




On that return, Travis Benjamin made a boneheaded play, fielding the punt and reversing field all the way back toward his own end zone. Rivers' desparation pass was intercepted on the 1-yard line by Jonathan Jones to seal the win. It certainly seemed as though they could pull the upset as the Patriots came out a bit stagnant.
