Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 23 yard field goal to slow down the growing momentum that the Bills had built following 17 unanswered points. Tom Brady and the Patriots offense moved quickly down the field on a drive that began inside their own 15. On a third and goal, Wes Welker was unable to make the first down marker at the 2 yard line and Bill Belichick opted to settle for a field goal and take a 24-17 lead.
