The New England Patriots regained the lead, 23-20, on a Tom Brady touchdown leap over the center of the line in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens. Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who had words with Brady after Brady slid for a first down in the third quarter, hit the Patriots quarterback in the lower back after the score.
Brady thought he scored two plays earlier on a quarterback sneak attempt. His touchdown run was overturned when replay showed that his knee was down. The Brady leap came on a 4th and 1 play. The touchdown capped off the 11-play, 63-yard drive for the Patriots. The touchdown came with 11:33 to play in the fourth quarter with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line.
