New England Patriots Battle Back In 23-20 OT Win
Stephen Gostkowski’s 35-yard field goal with 64 seconds left in overtime gave the New England Patriots a 23-20 come-from-behind win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Deion Branch, acquired five days after Randy Moss was traded to Minnesota on Oct. 6, sparked the comeback from a 20-10 deficit starting with a 5-yard scoring pass from Tom Brady four minutes into the fourth quarter.
The Patriots then forced the Ravens to punt and mover from their 14 to a third down at the Baltimore 3 and settled for Gostkowski’s 24-yard tying field goal.
On the last possession of overtime, Branch caught passes for 23 and 10 yards, setting up the winning kick.
Branch finished with nine catches for 98 yards for the Patriots (4-1). For the Ravens (4-2) Joe Flacco completed 27 of 35 passes for 285 yards and two touchdowns.
