Sunday night wasn’t pretty by any means, but games in December and January usually aren’t. Both the Patriots and Chargers needed the victory but each had their own reasons.

Notes and Observations Week 13: Packers Hold on to Beat Patriots 26-21

The heavyweight showdown of the year delivered as advertised on Sunday.
