Bent but not broken
Defense surrenders three kicks
only one touchdown

 

Unlike past meetings
Mental mistakes cost Pats game
Penalties, dropped pass.

 

Tony slot; Marv wide
Pats safety doubles Marvin
Gonzo grabs two scores.

 

Warm November breeze
Swirls gently from blimp to field
Football under stars.

 

Despite low yardage,
Patience with run game pays off
Last clock-killing drive.

 

Like shot from cannon
Twenty-one closes on ball
Flattened! Mr. Flex.

 

First in last seven
Castoff kicker gets last laugh
52 yard win.

 

Season still struggle
Win over hated rival
builds team confidence.
