With a makeshift secondary, the Patriots' defense held the high-powered Manning-led attack to just three points in a divisional-round playoff game at snowy Gillette. The loss dropped Manning's record in Foxborough to 0-7. The Patriots used a punishing ground attack -- 210 yards rushing, including 144 from Corey Dillon -- to control the ball for almost 38 minutes. "I think our defense is what made this game successful," Brady said. "Three points to one of the best offenses in the history of football is incredible."
