Patriots rally past Broncos

Foxboro, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Gostkowski drilled a 31-yard field goal with 1:56 left in overtime, capping the largest comeback in Patriots history and lifting New England to a 34-31 decision over the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

The Broncos built a 24-0 halftime lead thanks in large part to a sloppy first half from the New England offense, but Tom Brady led the Patriots on five straight scoring drives to turn the deficit into a seven-point advantage.

Peyton Manning responded with a 10-play, 80-yard scoring march that he capped with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas, tying the game with 3:06 left in the regulation.

Once in overtime, neither offense managed much until a fortuitous bounce on a New England punt set up the game-winning kick.

With just 3:11 left in the extra session, the Patriots punted the ball away, but the short kick caught a piece of Denver's Tony Carter and Nate Ebner of the Patriots pounced on the loose ball at the Denver 13.

Three plays later, Gostkowski sent his game-winning kick through the uprights to help New England remain unbeaten at home this season.
