3. Sunday Night Football vs. Denver, 2013
Scott Zolak also said, “You can have your Manning, I’ll take my Brady.” No game signified that statement more in the 2010s more than this game at windy Gillette Stadium.
By the time halftime rolled around, the Broncos had a 24-0 lead and it looked like the game was all but over. Stevan Ridley had fumbled again, and Brady and Co. could get nothing going offensively.
But much like a phoenix, the New England Patriots would rise from the ashes and come all the way back to take the game over. Led by remarkable touchdowns by Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman, the offense woke up and began controlling the momentum.
Likewise, Peyton Manning threw an inevitable interception to Logan Ryan that seemed to have sealed the game. However, Denver would proceed to tie the game late and send it to OT, though a muffed punt by the Broncos set up a game-winning field goal by Stephen Gostkowski.
