New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady defeated New Orleans Saints with his miraculous game-winning touchdown pass at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Sunday.
Brady, a two-time NFL Most Valuable Player, led his team to a 30-27 victory over the Saints with an amazing 17-yard touchdown pass to Patriots’ wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins in the last five seconds of the game.
This was Brady's first touchdown pass in two weeks.
"Guys made big-time catches," he told ESPN News. "It was just a great game."
“We had everybody going to the end zone and (Thompkins) kind of snuck into the corner and I put it up there for him and he came down and made a great catch,” he added.

Many predicted the Patriots had no chance at winning this game, however, Thompkins said his coach knew the last moments would be decisive. He said, “Coach Bill said that it might come down to the final seconds. You had to stick with the system. We just had to go out there and fight to the finish."
