FOXBORO, MA – The New England Patriots became the first team in NFL postseason history to rally from two separate 14-point deficits in the same game, defeating the Baltimore Ravens 35-31 on Saturday night.
Tom Brady’s touchdown pass to Brandon LaFell gave the Patriots the lead with just more than five minutes to go in the fourth quarter.
A Duron Harmon interception and a last-second knockdown of a Hail Mary attempt kept the Patriots ahead for good.
New England will host the AFC Championship Game next weekend and will face the winner of Sunday’s game between Indianapolis and Denver.
