The New England Patriots' defense has a hard time stopping the Philadelphia Eagles offense all game long. However, the unit made a key stop on third down to force its opponent to kick a field goal to go up 32-26. This, in turn, allowed the Patriots to take their first lead of the night – something they did on a touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski:
The duo's second scoring connection gives the Patriots a one-point lead early in the fourth quarter. New England moves the football well against the Eagles but the defense – without the benched Malcolm Butler – certainly is still a concern.
