Tom Brady’s 17-yard touchdown pass to Kenbrell Thompkins with 5 seconds left gave the New England Patriots a wild 30-27 win and knocked the New Orleans Saints from the ranks of the unbeaten Sunday. (Breitbart Sports Note: The Saints defeat means that the AFC West is the only Division in the NFL with an undefeated team, and they have two in the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos.)
It capped a 70-yard drive in which the Patriots marched downfield with no timeouts after getting the ball with 1:08 to go.
The Saints (5-1) had taken a 24-23 lead with 3:29 remaining on Drew Brees’ 34-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills, but couldn’t put away New England.
The Patriots (5-1) survived an interception by Keenan Lewis on their first snap after Garrett Hartley’s 39-yard field goal made it 27-23.
