Patriots rout Chargers in first game after Spygate decision

FOXBOROUGH - After listening to a week of quips and aspersions following their coach’s candid camera escapades, the Patriots played like a team bent on exacting revenge - on the San Diego Chargers, the media, the NFL, commissioner Roger Goodell, and anyone who ever had used the word “Patriots” and “videotape” in the same sentence.

The result was a 38-14 demolition of San Diego last night at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots and Bill Belichick proved they don’t need cameras to put on a good show. All they need is Randy Moss, Adalius Thomas, Tom Brady, Rosevelt Colvin, and the proverbial chip on their shoulder.
