The Patriots trailed 24-16 going into the fourth quarter before a 46-yard field goal from Stephen Gostkowski cut Pittsburgh's advantage to 24-19.

Brown got tangled up with two Patriots defenders on a end zone pass and had to be helped off the field; he could not put any weight on his left leg. The win also clinched the AFC East title for New England.

Brady, to that point losing his quarterback duel with the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger, took the Patriots down the field when it mattered most. The Patriots handled the Bills 23-3 in the first meeting of the season earlier this month in Buffalo.
