What started for the New England Patriots as one of their worst halves of football in the past decade, ended with Tom Brady's greatest comeback win over his biggest rival and former favorite receiver.
Yes, things looked bleak after the Patriots' three turnovers in the first quarter and the 24-0 hole they sat in at halftime. But a focused and resilient team emerged from the locker room, and the offense, defense and special teams all contributed to 28 straight points, the lead and an eventual win.
It was a roller coaster of a win and moves New England back into control of the second overall seed in the AFC, just one game behind the Broncos with a tiebreaker over them in-hand.
This Patriots team might run hot and cold, but what's clear is when it's hot, it can beat anyone. At least in Foxborough.
