FOXBORO (CBS) — Hunter Henry loves finding the end zone for the New England Patriots. The tight end did it again early in Sunday’s Week 10 game against the Cleveland Browns, and then again in the fourth quarter.
With those two touchdown grabs in Week 10, Henry is now up to seven on the season. All seven of those touchdowns have come in the last seven weeks.
Henry’s first quarter touchdown capped off an incredible 15-play, 83-yard scoring drive by the Patriots, tying the game at 7-7.

The Browns opened Sunday’s game at Gillette Stadium with an 11-play, 84-yard touchdown drive of their own, scoring when Baker Mayfield found tight end Austin Hooper in the end zone on fourth-and-goal. But the Patriots did just about everything right on their answering drive, with Rhamondre Stevenson picking up 25 yards on six carries while Mac Jones was a perfect 6-for-6 for 55 yards.
Henry capped it off with a nice play, slowing down safety Ronnie Harrison at the line before quickly making his break for the end zone. He also had a nice reception on a third-and-8, moving the chains on a 13-yard connection with Jones.
The Patriots took a 14-7 shortly after Henry’s touchdown, when New England turned a Kyle Dugger interception of Mayfield into another scoring drive off a Stevenson five-yard touchdown run.
Henry caught his second touchdown of the game early in the fourth quarter, giving New England a 38-7 lead.
