WATCH: Melvin Gordon burns Patriots on 87-yard TD run

Jesse Reed

The Los Angeles Chargers jumped out to an early lead over the New England Patriots Sunday, thanks to a monster run by Melvin Gordon.

Taking the ball from Philip Rivers in a shotgun formation, Gordon shot through the line of scrimmage like he was literally fired out of a shotgun and sprinted 87 yards for the score.

New England’s defense has been a huge problem all year long. Early on, it looks like Tom Brady and his offense will have to have a stellar game to win at home.
