The Patriots trailed by 17 at the half before capping the comeback with a one yard Tom Brady touchdown sneak. 

“There’s always things that are going to go wrong in a football game and things aren’t going to work out the way you want them to all the time,” said Patriots receiver Wes Welker,  “The main thing is just playing a full 60 minutes and never giving in and understanding that one drive and one score (can) get things going.”

The Patriots finish off their season next Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.
