The only clear reasons I hear from pundits for the Pats winning are:

1. Its in New England
2. tom brady plays better in big games than Phillip Rivers
3. It will be cold and the Chargers come from Los Angeles
4. Melvin Gordon is dinged (& the Chargers won't take full advantage of the
Patriots weak run defense)

then there is the hopeful,

1. New England Offensive line traditionally handles good pass rushes
2. Chargers give up a lot of yards to running backs in the passing game
3. New England d-backfield is a strength; therefore, they might shut down the Charger receivers.
