Patriots Survive Jaguars, 23-16
The Jacksonville Jaguars gave the AFC East leading New England Patriots a bit of a scare on Sunday, but the Pats were able to get by them, 23-16.
The first quarter of the game, it looked like Jacksonville had some control. The Jags put up 10 points, to New England’s three. It looked like it could be another rough day for Brady and the boys.
The second quarter proved much different as Stephen Gostkowski nailed another field goal, and Tom Brady was able to hook up with Danny Woodhead for a score. Gostkowski would put his third of the day through in the third quarter, and Tom Brady would get his second touchdown of the day, this time to Wes Welker.
All together Brady threw for 267 yards, 2 TDs and 2 interceptions. Not much on the ground for the Pats, with just 103 total yards. Stevan Ridley accounted for 84 of those. Wes Welker lead the team, and all receivers with 88 yards. Jacksonville’s Chad Henne threw 3 picks, and a TD.
Patriots improve to 11-4, and have clinched the division.
