Patriots vs. Packers: Tully Banta-Cain Helps New England Survive Late-Game Scare
The New England Patriots survived a Sunday night scare against the Green Bay Packers in Gillette Stadium thanks to the player who was very nearly the goat of the game, Tully Banta-Cain.
With Green Bay trailing by four and driving for a potential game-winning touchdown, quarterback Matt Flynn threw an interception to safety Brandon Meriweather. Game over.
Not so fast.
Tully Banta-Cain was flagged for illegal hands to the face, offsetting the interception, giving the Packers a first down and a second chance.
On the same drive, with time expiring, Flynn rolled out to his right looking for a receiver in the end-zone. Banta-Cain saw his chance for redemption and seized it. He sacked Flynn, causing a fumble and ending the game. For real this time.
New England survived by the skin of their teeth and now advances to 12-2. Brady's bunch can clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win over Buffalo next week.
