New England Patriots receiver Chris Hogan sustained a shoulder injury in Week 8 during the team's win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Last week, he scored six points for the Chargers via a 65-yard touchdown return.
Fortunately, for Hogan and the Patriots, they have a bye week coming up. For the second-straight week, the Patriots held an opposing quarterback to fewer than 300 yards (212).
Hogan has 33 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns this season. After touching the punt at his own 11-yard line and scooping up the ball at the 8-yard line, Benjamin made a decision to run backwards to create some separation.
The Pats would take on two field goals before the half to take a 15-7 lead to the break.
The Patriots defeated the Chargers 21-13. Down 18-13, the Bolts elected to go for a two-point conversion, but failed.
The Chargers final drive would end when Rivers would throw an interception to Jonathan Jones to end the game.
Nick Novak missed a 51-yard field goal attempt on the team's first drive. It's hard to put a finger on what exactly Benjamin was thinking during the second quarter at Gillette Stadium, when he muffed a New England punt near the 10-yard-line.
