With Tom Brady and Wes Welker, the Patriots could be looking at another Super Bowl.
It was all Washington after one quarter. Brandon Banks returned a Zoltan Mesko punt 84 yards to the end zone before Alfred Morris scored to give the Redskins a 14-0 lead after one quarter.
But Tom Brady found Wes Welker for a 32-yard touchdown to start the second quarter, and the lead was down to 17-10 by halftime.
Danny Woodhead tied the game at 17 after returning the second-half opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown. Kai Forbath’s 33-yard field goal put the Redskins back ahead by three headed into the fourth quarter.
Brady found Welker for another touchdown, and Stephen Gostowski kicked a field goal to give the Patriots a late 27-20 lead. But with his back against the wall, RG3 found Santana Moss in the end zone to force overtime.
The Patriots won the toss in overtime, and Brady won the game on the first possession. Aaron Hernandez caught a 14-yard touchdown from Brady to give Bill Belichick his fourth Super Bowl ring.
