On the second play of New England’s ensuing drive, Tom Brady had the ball stripped from him by Brandon Graham, with teammate Derek Barnett recovering at the 30-yard line.

Brady connected for an eight-yard gain on a pass to Rob Gronkowski to open the drive. The Patriots’ protection broke down on the next play, with Graham and Chris Long converging on Brady, who had the ball stripped from his hands by Graham.

After three runs netted four yards and took the clock down to 1:10, rookie kicker Jake Elliott converted a 46-yard field goal for a 41-33 lead.
