While the New England Patriots’ week nine game against the Green Bay Packers was a close one for the first three quarters, it has been blown open in the fourth period. First, the Patriots defense forced a turnover that was promptly converted into a James White touchdown run. On its very next possession, New England added to its lead.
After the defense came up with another stop — with Trey Flowers and Adrian Clayborn registering a big sack on third down — to give the football to Tom Brady and the offense again. It did not take long for them to turn the possession into more points:
On 2nd and 10 near midfield, Tom Brady found wide receiver Josh Gordon on the left side of the field on an in-cutting route. The veteran wideout was able to break a tackle and take the pass to the house for another touchdown. And his second 100-yard game in a Patriots uniform. And a 31-17 New England lead.
