An upset victory vs. the Chargers nearly 12 years ago to the date.Throwing it back to the Patriots 2006 Divisional Round matchup.

“Bringing a knife to a gun fight.” Famous words spoken to me heading into this game by a confident Chargers fan. On paper, he was right. The 2006 Chargers were mostly unstoppable that year with a roster full of talent.
The Patriots in 2006 are regarded as one of the worst teams talent-wise in the Belichick-Brady era, especially the receiving core. Tom Brady was the only reason they were in this game.
Troy Browns forced fumble following an interception is still a top 10 moment in this current Patriots dynasty’s history. Unreal.
(No we will not talk about what happened in the AFC Championship game)
Patriots face the Chargers again in the Divisional Round of the playoffs Sunday at 1:05pm.
