Patriots At Chargers: Patriots Take Advantage Of Fumble, Brady Hits Gronkowski For 7-3 Lead

Kris Wilson’s fumble gave the Patriots the ball just 22 yards from the end zone, and New England took advantage as Brady connected with TE Rob Gronkowski for the Pats’ first touchdown of the game.

A lot of extra effort in that short drive. On one play, Gronkowski dragged a group of Chargers the few extra feet to secure a first down, and right before the touchdown, Danny Woodhead took a big shot on a screen pass but stayed on his feet to turn a loss into a gain and put the Pats right on the goal line.
