The New England Patriots’ defense and special teams units are giving the Los Angeles Chargers a hard time in Week 13 at SoFi Stadium. The visitors’ D/ST has scored two touchdowns en route to a 28-0 halftime lead and looks like one of the best fantasy plays of the day. Let’s take a look out how New England has run away with the game so far.
The Patriots’ first D/ST score came on a Gunner Olszewski punt return. The second-year wideout took a punt 70 yards to the house for his first career touchdown. He had a punt return TD called back in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals but came back with a vengeance.
The second special teams came from a blocked field goal attempt, which Devin McCourty scooped up for a score just before the break to help the Patriots build a four-score lead.

New England has tallied a season-high 25 DKFP so far and could build on that mark if things keep going like this.
