Patriots slip past Saints on late FG

By Associated Press

POSTED:



FOXBOROUGH, Mass. » The team that won the Super Bowl last year with the help of big plays couldn't stop them yesterday.

Stephen Gostkowski's 28-yard field goal with 53 seconds left gave the New England Patriots a 27-24 win over the New Orleans Saints.

On his first series since being chosen Super Bowl MVP, Drew Brees threw an incompletion and was sacked for a 10-yard loss. But on his third and final possession, he led a 20-play, 86-yard march that lasted 10:01. It ended with a 2-yard scoring run by Reggie Bush.

Brees completed nine of 13 passes for 55 yards.

Tom Brady played New England's first two series and went 5-for-8 for 67 yards.

 

Baltimore 17, Carolina 12

Joe Flacco guided Baltimore's retooled offense to a pair of scores, and the host Ravens held the Panthers without a touchdown.

Flacco went 8-for-12 for 120 yards and a touchdown. He produced a field goal in his first series, then went three and out before directing a 96-yard drive that ended with a 30-yard touchdown pass to Mark Clayton.
