Patriots' Watson makes a meaningful play

Posted by's Tim Graham

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- There has been a Ben Watson sighting at Gillette Stadium.

The New England Patriots tight end was spotted rumbling down the left sideline for a 29-yard gain to set up a 31-yard Stephen Gostkowski field goal, the first points of Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos.

Watson came into the game with three catches for 17 yards, none of them longer than 7 yards. He was inactive for the Patriots' first two games and didn't touch the ball in last week's loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Sammy Morris ran four times for 25 yards on the drive.
