It looked like the Saints were going to walk out of Foxboro, Mass. victors once again.
And then Tom Brady assumed vintage form and led the Patriots to a game-winning score. With 1:08 left in the game, Brady calmly took the Patriots down the field and reached the 17-yard line. From there, he tossed a touchdown to rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins with just five seconds left on the clock.
The Patriots won 30-27 and gave New Orleans its first loss of the season.
Brady finished the game with 267 yards. He had just 199 before the final drive. The touchdown to Thompkins was his first of the game.
Both teams are now 5-1 for the season.
