Breaking down the game-changing play
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
My new ESPN.com teammate, former Boston Globe reporter Mike Reiss, worked the New England Patriots locker room after Monday night's 25-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills in Gillette Stadium.
Reiss, now the anchor tenant at ESPNBoston.com, wove together a fantastic first-person account of the game-changing play: Bills kick returner Leodis McKelvin's crucial fumble with a couple minutes left in the game.
I particularly enjoy Pierre Woods' reaction to McKelvin's decision to bring it out of the end zone.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady converted the turnover into a game-winning 16-yard strike to Benjamin Watson with 50 seconds to play.
