The Chargers have not beat the Patriots since 2008, have not beat them at home since 2005 Casey Hayward Jerseys 2019 , and have not beat them in the playoffs since 1964. Still, today is a new day and Anthony Lynn’s Chargers were not supposed to win last week either.Philip Rivers has performed at an MVP level this season. Melvin Gordon finally had the breakout year Chargers fans had been waiting for. Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa headline one of the NFL’s best defenses. The Patriots are still the Patriots, but they are not the juggernaut they once were. Everything is lining up for the Chargers to have a real chance to steal a victory at Gillette Stadium today.The Chargers still undefeated in games played outside of Los Angeles this season, so hopefully that trend can continue today. When the NFL owners and players agreed to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement in 2011 White Travis Benjamin Jerseys , one of the features was supposed to be more certainty in rookie contracts: Rookies’ salaries and signing bonuses were determined by the CBA, and so contract negotiations were supposed to be a breeze.For the most part, it has played out that way: There are now far fewer rookies still unsigned when training camp opens than there had been under the old CBA. But rookie holdouts haven’t completely gone away.Bears linebacker Roquan Smith finally signed his rookie deal today, a rare case of a rookie remaining unsigned until after the preseason started. For Smith and the Bears Travis Benjamin Jerseys 2019 , the issue was whether he would lose guaranteed money if he gets suspended. In the end, the two sides were able to find common ground.The only rookie who has had a longer contract dispute than Smith was Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, who didn’t sign until August 29, 2016.Last year the final rookie to sign was Titans receiver Corey Davis White Derek Watt Jerseys , who signed on the first day of training camp. Most years, every rookie is in the fold before the preseason starts, so Smith’s holdout was unusual, and was a situation the new CBA was intended to avoid.
