The New England Patriots are officially out of the 10-point hole they found themselves in early in the second quarter. After a Cordarrelle Patterson touchdown on a kickoff return cut the team’s deficit to three points, New England’s next offensive possession ended with a touchdown as well – one that would not have been possible without a big fourth down conversion from Tom Brady to wide receiver Josh Gordon:
Displaying great hands, athleticism and concentration to hold onto the football, Gordon was able to come down with the football to keep the drive alive. A few plays later – one of which a direct snap to running back James White that did not bring any success – New England was in the end zone once again.
This time, it was a pass from Brady to White:
White’s fifth touchdown of the season allowed the Patriots to get back on top again 21-17.
