The New England Patriots improved on their first drive, a three-and-out, on their second possession of the day. Tom Brady led the Patriots into the red zone before their drive stalled, forcing a Stephen Gostkowski field goal that gave them a 3-0 lead in the first quarter of the 2012 AFC Championship Game.
Brady found five different receivers on the drive, but was sacked on the Patriots' first play in the red zone, and misfired on a couple of passes that could have been touchdowns, including one to a wide open Rob Gronkowski. He is six of 10 for 46 yards so far.
Brady also had an interception by Bernard Pollard negated by an illegal contact penalty on Lardarius Webb.
