The New England Patriots needed a major play in the biggest of ways. The offensive line is decimated. Wide receiver Julian Edelman is out with a foot injury. The defense has been missing Jamie Collins. The offense needed to make a big play.
Quarterback Tom Brady can't throw the ball to himself. Someone had to step up. I wouldn't doubt you if you suggested Danny Amendola as the clutch player to do the impossible.
But this was a bigger need and it needed a bigger player. Watch tight end Rob Gronkowski catch a 76-yard touchdown score. Former Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather blew the coverage.
Patriots lead 24-23.
