Patriots pay high price for dramatic victory

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Sometimes the price of victory is high in the NFL.
On Sunday afternoon in the New England Patriots' dramatic, come-from-behind, last-second 30-27 victory over the previously unbeaten Saints, the cost came in the form of injuries to key players such as No. 1 cornerback Aqib Talib (hip), Pro Bowl linebacker Jerod Mayo (shoulder), top receiver Danny Amendola (head) and starting right guard Dan Connolly (head).
All four players failed to finish the contest, watching like the few fans remaining at Gillette Stadium as Tom Brady orchestrated the 38th victory of his career when either trailing or tied in the fourth quarter. Brady tossed a game-winning, 17-yard touchdown pass to rookie Kenbrell Thompkins with five seconds to play.

The victory was a solid bounce-back effort after a lackluster loss a week earlier in Cincinnati in which Brady failed to a throw a touchdown pass for the first time in 52 games. New England's scoring output in the 13-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals was its lowest since 2006.

It's a battle of attrition sometimes, ... and there's something I haven't seen much comment on, the fact Gillette Stadium emptied out with the Pats trailing and only a few minutes left ... how failclown-like, I didn't realize Pats fans were like that, considering they also got the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics, et... I would think they'd of stuck around to the bitter end, <shrug>.
Halo, 73Saint and savoyk like this.

It don't suprise me that they left early-Tom Brady took himself out the game in the fourth qtr. last time we played them. If their own players quit on them, its understandable that the fans will too.

....I've also been to Saints games when we knew the Saints were gonna lose, and I saw Saints fans headed for the door early. To each his own, but as for me, lm gonna stay till the end....if nothing else, for the price I paid for the tickets

Man. I worked in NH for 6 years. They wore 1 or ore of their team's shorts when they were winning. No win and they never murmured a thing. After a loss, it would be like there had been no sport on over the weekend. But when they win, they don't stop crowing.

In defense of patriots fans on a Sunday evening, leaving 5 minutes early saves then 1.5 hours of traffic going home. A lot of fans at that game gave families, work and school Monday morning.

Re: Patriots pay high price for dramatic victory

Tom Brady single handily won that game. Changing the plays at the line and recognizing and calling out almost every blitz we through at him. Honestly, I have a ton more of respect for him after that game. I do feel like they pulled out all the stops and gave it everything they had to win the game. I think they all know that they aren't gonna get to the Super Bowl this year, but defeating a team that has a really good chance at getting there, will at the very least give them something that they can look back on and allow them to feel like they achieved something this season.

Re: Patriots pay high price for dramatic victory

I feel about them, like I do about the Saint's, in that, hey, 5-1 at this point? WTF are you guys complaining about.

As far as leaving, with these two teams, maybe if one was up by 20 points. Obviously if it was close, then anything could happen. I can't blame someone wanting to avoid that madhouse after the game, by getting a jump on traffic.

Re: Patriots pay high price for dramatic victory

I would never leave a one-score game knowing what Drew Brees is capable of and what kind of odd things can happen in a football game. Don't think I've ever left a game until kneeldown mode. Hell I even stayed until the bitter end at that game against the Panthers in Tiger Stadium in 05. Had a great time too.

It blows my mind people that have watched Tom Brady over his career would just bail. No excuses for that.
