Patriots Shock the Browns, Defeat Cleveland 27-26
(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) — Tom Brady did it again. The New England Patriots scored two touchdowns in the game’s final 61 seconds to rally back and beat the Cleveland Browns 27-26.
With about a minute left in the second quarter, the Patriots trailed the Browns 19-3, and with under three minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Browns were ahead 26-14.
With 61 seconds left, Brady threw a two yard strike to wide receiver Julian Edelman to cut the deficit to six. After recovering an onsides kick, Brady then led the Patriots down the field and threw a one-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola to give the Patriots the lead.
It wasn’t all good news for the Patriots though. In the third quarter, tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered what appeared to be a devastating knee injury. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting the team fears Gronkowski tore his ACL.
Brady wound up throwing for 418 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Shane Vereen had a big day for Patriots. The running back caught 12 passes for 153 yards.
