Patriots capitalize on Chargers' mistakes in victory

WATCH: Chargers' Travis Benjamin runs one of the worst punt returns in NFL history

After touching the punt at his own 11-yard line and scooping up the ball at the 8-yard line, Benjamin chose to run backwards to create some separation.

Another Los Angeles punt gave New England the ball back at its own 22 at the two-minute warning.

As a result, the Patriots took a 9-7 lead over the Chargers in the second quarter. Left with just 1:08 and no time outs, Rivers led his team all the way down to the Patriots' 23-yard line.

Here are some of the best tweets following the Chargers' 21-13 loss to the Patriots.

Rivers went 17-30 for 212 passing yards with one touchdown and one interception in the loss. But Rivers' pass with 1 second remaining was intercepted at the goal line by Jonathan Jones.

"We weren't going to let him escape", Jones said. 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.

Ian Wright sends warning to Jose Mourinho about Man United v Tottenham
With Harry Kane ruled out against Man United, Shaka Hislop sifts through the other options at Mauricio Pochettino's disposal. Tottenham says the striker underwent assessment this week that showed "a minor strain to the left hamstring".

In addition to the safety, the Chargers were guilty of numerous other mistakes, including having two touchdowns called back.

Hogan left the game in the fourth quarter with a right shoulder injury and did not return to the game for the Patriots. The run blocking was a challenge at times, with players noting how the Chargers brought a safety into the box to challenge them, but they still ground it out late.

The Patriots follow the bye with five road games, including one in Mexico City, in the next six games. The Chargers also have their bye next week. Paul Lowe had an 87-yard touchdown run for the Chargers in the AFL in 1961.
