Cowboys Vs. Patriots: Tom Brady, Aaron Hernandez Connect For Game-Winning Touchdown

With five minutes left in Sunday's game, the New England Patriots were down to the Dallas Cowboys, 16-13, following a Dan Bailey 26-yard field goal. But that was exactly the situation Tom Brady wanted, though it took two drives to get it done. On the second one, Brady had 2:31 left on the clock and 80 yards to go. The drive began and ended with passes to Aaron Hernandez, the latter an eight-yard reception.


Brady drops back, looks around and spots Aaron Hernandez crossing the middle of the field. He fires one off and hits Hernandez for the game-winning touchdown and the 20-16 victory.

The 5-1 Patriots rest this coming week before taking a road trip on Oct. 30 to face the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 2-3 Cowboys will regroup with a game against the St. Louis Rams this coming Sunday.
