VIDEO: Top 3 plays from the Patriots' win over the Giants
Unbelievable finish last night. The Patriots are still undefeated on this Monday morning, but just barely. It took literally every second to beat the New York Giants, the Patriots' kryptonite, so to speak.
Here are the three best plays from yesterday, and you can probably figure out what they're going to be.
1. Stephen Gostkowski's game-winning 54-yard field goal
What could be better than this? Down two points with a little under two minutes to go, Tom Brady drove the Patriots down the field in just enough time to set Stephen Gostkowski up for the game-winning field goal. As the kick went through, you could hear the screams of the many Patriots fans that were in attendance. It's just a regular season game, but this one has a little extra to it considering the history between the two teams.
2. Brady, Rob Gronkowski give the Patriots the lead in the fourth quarter
Rob Gronkowski was having a quiet day up until this point. Brady found the burly tight end across the middle of the field for the score, which was aided by old friend and current Giants safety Brandon Merriweather colliding with a teammate.
With the Patriots needing a huge play to put them back in the game late in the third quarter, they got it from Danny Amendola. The speedy receiver returned a Brad Wing punt inside the Giants 10-yard line, where he was accidentally tripped up by Duron Harmon. Amendola would have scored had it not been for Harmon's miscue, but the Patriots were able to score a few plays later on a LeGarrette Blount touchdown run.
Honorable mention: Brady finds Brandon LaFell deep
I thought this was going to be picked off, but thankfully I was wrong. This Brady deep ball to Brandon LaFell set the Patriots up inside the red zone and gave them a chance to put some distance between themselves and the Giants. Unfortunately, Brady was picked off in the end zone, ironically looking for LaFell on that play.
