12/1 - The Texans looked like the Houston of old early on, but Patriots adjustments at halftime down 17-7 proved to be key as they came back to win the game 34-31 on two Gostkowski field goals late in the game. While Ben Tate was able to put up 102 yards rushing, Case Keenum found no luck through the air. Brady had 371 yards passing, with two touchdowns and an interception. The Patriots are now 9-3, while the Texans lost their 10th game of the season.
11/24 - The Patriots and Broncos playing against each other meant it was Manning vs. Brady one more time, and there's no way this game wasn't going into overtime. Denver came out to a huge 24-0 lead at halftime, but Brady led the Patriots back on a furious comeback, scoring 31 unanswered to lead 31-24 late in the game. After the Broncos were able to tie it, they went into an OT period that almost ended in a tie before a punt was muffed and the Pats converted an easy 31-yard FG to win the game. New England moves to 8-3 on the season
11/18 - A highly-anticipated game ended with a bang, but not in the Patriots favor. Carolina got the 24-20 win in Charlotte, scoring a TD on a 25-yard Ted Ginn Jr. TD catch with 59 seconds left in the game. The Pats thought they had a pass interference call on the last play of the game that would have given them the ball at the Carolina 1 yard line, but the flag was picked up and the game was over. New England stays two games above the Jets and Dolphins in the East at 7-3.
11/3 - The Pats scored 55 points in a beating down of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, keeping them in first place ahead of the Jets in the AFC East. New England won 55-31 behind 432 yards and 4 TDs from Tom Brady, as well as 197 total yards on the ground. Stevan Ridley had two scores, while Aaron Dobson had 130 yards and two TD as well. Jericho Cotchery had 3 TDs for the Steelers, but it wasn't enough to overcome the disappointing performance from the defense.
