The Rams are the surprise team of the year thus far, sitting atop the NFC West at 3-1 with defending division-champion Seattle coming to LA for a Week 5 showdown. Few saw this coming from a team that went 4-12 last season, fired its coach and produced one of the NFL’s lowest-rated quarterbacks in Goff. Not helping was the fact that Snead had traded a king’s ransom to the Titans in order to move up to the top spot in last year’s draft for the right to select the Cal QB ahead of Carson Wentz, who had a far superior rookie season.
Jameis Winston rallied Tampa Bay late with an 18-yard TD pass to Cameron Brate that trimmed New England’s lead to 16-14 with 2:09 remaining.
After Gostkowski’s fourth goal put the Patriots up by five, Winston marched the Bucs from his 25 to the Patriots 19 before throwing an incompletion on the final play.
It might not have come down to a last-minute drive if not for another poor performance by Tampa Bay’s Nick Folk.
The veteran kicker missed two field goals and an extra-point before beating the New York Giants on a last-second kick last week. He missed three more field goals Thursday night, including a 31-yarder in the fourth quarter that would have cut a nine-point deficit to six with just under six minutes to go.
“I left points out there,” said Folk, who also misfired from 56 yards just Cheap International Soccer Jerseys before halftime and 49 yards on the second play of the fourth quarter. “We should have won the game 20-19, so this one’s on me.”
With his 186th career regular-season win as a starter, Brady tied Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for the most by a quarterback in NFL history. He also has 25 Cheap Hockey Practice Jerseys postseason victories, including five Super Bowls.
