Patriots Prevail in El Clasico!

The Patriots staged a dramatic fourth quarter comeback and were able to close the door on the Colts, 24-20.

The three key plays in the game: While Brady engineered two big drives, he was helped out on the game winning drive by an incredible throw and catch to Stallworth near the red zone. After scoring, the Patriots then forced a Manning fumble, mostly due to excellent coverage (Dallas Clark almost completely neutralized on Sunday). Lastly, with a third and six with just more than two minutes left, the Patriots were able to get the first down to Wes Welker to solidify the win.

The Patriots offense played pretty poorly for the first three quarters but came up in the clutch. This turned into an excellent game. If the Colts defense plays as they did today for the rest of the season, they’ll be very tough to beat.
