Patriots' last-second victory
They didn't have Rob Gronkowski, but it turned out that the Patriots didn't need him, as Tom Brady engineered a dramatic 30-27 win over the Saints. Brady's touchdown pass to Kenbrell Thompkins capped off a game in which the Patriots needed three separate tries at a comeback in order to hand the Saints their first loss of the season. They're not as impressive as the Broncos or Chiefs, but are the Patriots still in the business of contending for Super Bowls?
