How to watch today's Patriots vs Chargers game: Livestream, TV coverage, kickoff time & radio station

A pair of struggling AFC sides are going to battle it out at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon as the Los Angeles Chargers (4-7) make the long trip across the country to take on the New England Patriots (2-9) in NFL Week 13 action.

Both teams sit in last place in their respective AFC divisions. The Chargers had high hopes entering the 2023 NFL season, but three straight losses have seen them drop to 4-7. The most recent was a 20-10 home defeat against the Ravens, which leaves their playoff hopes hanging by a thread.

This is an absolute must-win for the Chargers against the the bottom-feeding the Patriots, who have lost four games in a row, falling 10-7 at the New York Giants last time out.

The New England offense has been one of the worst in the NFL, while their defense is not nearly as robust as past seasons. The Patriots will be in front of their home fans on Sunday, and they will need to do all they can to make that home-field advantage count here.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch the match, including what TV channel to watch it on, streaming details, and more.
