Taking a closer look at four-plus key Patriots plays from Sunday's win over the Chargers (after we went heavy on defense in the column), that include:

Jermaine Eluemunor lending a hand to help Ryan Izzo with Joey Bosa;

Chase Winovich and Deatrich Wise not giving Justin Herbert enough time to get to a couple open receivers in the red zone;

- Patriots borrowing from the Chargers' game film and then having Cam Newton ride the back to set up the second score;

- Jarrett Stidham's three passes.

Let's break down the plays with video analysis:
