FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Stephen Gostkowski's 35-yard field goal
with 1:56 left in overtime gave the New England Patriots a 23-20
come-from-behind win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Deion Branch, acquired five days after Randy Moss was traded to
Minnesota on Oct. 6, sparked the comeback from a 20-10 deficit
starting with a 5-yard scoring pass from Tom Brady four minutes
into the fourth quarter. The Patriots then forced the Ravens to
punt and marched from their 14 to a third down at the Baltimore 3
and settled for Gostkowski's 24-yard tying field goal.
On the last possession of overtime, Branch caught passes for 23
and 10 yards, setting up the winning kick.
Branch finished with 9 catches for 98 yards for the Patriots
(4-1). For the Ravens (4-2) Joe Flacco completed 27 of 35 passes
for 285 yards and two touchdowns.
