When Tom Brady's career is over with, this is one of the signature plays that they'll show at his Hall of Fame induction.
The Patriots were at a crossroads coming into the Week 6 matchup with the Saints. They were coming off an ugly loss to the Cincinnati Bengals that saw them score just six points, preventing Tom Brady from a chance at breaking Drew Brees' record for consecutive games with a touchdown.
The Pats had lost Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly in the previous two games and would lose Jerod Mayo in the fourth quarter of this one. They also were still without Rob Gronkowski.
If ever there was a time for the Patriots to start feeling bad for themselves and pack it in, this was the game.
Tom Brady was intercepted with 2:16 remaining in the game, with the Patriots down four points. It looked like that would seal the Pats' second straight loss of the season, but the defense forced a three-and-out, giving Brady one last chance with 1:13 remaining at his own 30-yard line and no timeouts.
Seven plays later, with just :10 seconds remaining, Brady launched this game-winning touchdown that set the tone for the rest of the season.
It was one of the most unbelievable comebacks of Brady's career and the signature moment of the 2013 season.
Despite injuries, huge point deficits and little time left on the clock, the 2013 Pats never stopped fighting, and these five plays show just how hard they were to beat and how many clutch plays they managed to come up with.
