Saints vs. Patriots: Takeaways from New England's 30-27 Win over New Orleans

The New England Patriots put together their finest first half of football of 2013 against the New Orleans Saints, but they watched their lead disappear with a sloppy second half. 

It looked bad for Tom Brady and company after two straight failed chances to lead a last-minute drive down only one and four points, respectively. The third time was the charm; Brady found Kenbrell Thompkins in the back of the end zone with just five seconds left to seal the 30-27 win.

It looks like the victory might have come at a high cost. The Pats had multiple injuries during the game to impact players. Somehow the scrappy Patriots just keep finding a way to win, but how long can they continue to do so as the injuries mount?

Here are our takeaways from a miracle win.
