WATCH: Patriots deliver perfect 2-minute drive to end first half of AFC Championship Game

New England needed a spark and it got one.

The New England Patriots trail the Jacksonville Jaguars 14-10 at halftime of the 2017 AFC Championship Game. The defending world champions found themselves down 14-3 at one point but delivered a perfectly executed two-minute drive to close out the first half – capped by this one-yard touchdown run by James White:

The Patriots started their final series of the half at their own 15 yard line but drove down the field in six plays, taking only 1:07. The biggest plays of the game besides the touchdown were a 32-yard pass interference call against Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye and – unfortunately for New England – an incomplete pass that saw a helmet-to-helmet collision between Jacksonville's Barry Church and Rob Gronkowski.

Gronkowski left the game after the hit and his status has not yet been announced.
