The over has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams in New England and is 7-3 in the Chargers' last 10 games played in the month of October. On the other side, the over is 5-1 in the Patriots' last six conference games, is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall, and is 49-24 in their last 73 home games. Even thoguh some believe the Patriots have fixed their defensive problems, they just lost their most versatile player in linebacker Dont'a Hightower, who is now out for the season. That's a huge blow for the Patriots.
