We've reached halftime of the 2015 AFC Championship, and the New England Patriots lead the Indianapolis Colts 17-7.

The Patriots jumped out to a 14-0 lead after the first quarter, and appeared ready to add to that lead. However, a Tom Brady interception on an underthrown pass to Rob Gronkowski held the lead at 14, and the Colts would answer with a touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7.

New England would drive down in the closing minutes of the half. They made it to the red zone and had a first and goal from the three. However, two missed defensive pass interference calls and a Brady miss had the Patriots settle for 3 and a 17-7 lead.

The Patriots will receive the ball to begin the second half.
