Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans turned out to be the “trap” game New England fans were afraid of, but in the end the Patriots earned their second comeback victory in a row.
Tom Brady threw for 371 yards and two scores, and Stephen Gostkowski made two long field goals in the fourth quarter as New England Patriots rallied for a 34-31 win over Houston.
Whenever a regular season NFL game receives as much hype as Sunday night’s Broncos/Patriots game did, it often seems as if the actual game is anti-climatic. This one, however, may have exceeded the hype.
Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal for New England after a misplayed punt return by Denver, lifting the Patriots to a 34-31 overtime victory over the Broncos on Sunday night.
The world will be watching Sunday night as legendary quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning face each other for the 14th time in their illustrious rivalry.
In a game that was expected to be a defensive battle, the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers both displayed very efficient offenses. Unfortunately for New England, Carolina’s offense was just a little more efficient.
Cam Newton threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Ted Ginn Jr. with 59 seconds left and the Carolina Panthers held off the New England Patriots 24-20 Monday night for their sixth straight victory when officials picked up a penalty flag on the final play.
No one thought the Carolina Panthers were a serious Super Bowl contender when they started the 2013 season losing three of their first four games, but thanks to a five-game winning streak, they are now one of the hottest teams in the league.
Here’s a game-by-game look at the remaining schedule for the 2013 New England Patriots.
