At one point on Sunday, the Cleveland Browns were leading the New England Patriots 19-3 late in the third quarter. It looked like the Browns were headed to a big win over a quality team. That is when things unraveled for them.
The Browns had just scored on an 80-yard pass to Josh Gordon. On the following drive, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hit running back Shane Vereen for a 50-yard pass. A couple of plays later he scored to bring the Patriots within eight points after successfully converting the two-point conversion.
On the Patriots next possession they got a field goal to narrow the gap. The Browns followed that with a touchdown and it looked like the Browns had extended the lead enough to get the win. There was just 2:39 left in the game.
The Patriots went down and scored to get within five points with a touchdown pass to Julian Edelman. They went for the onside kick because there was a minute left in the game. They recovered it, marched down the field and got a touchdown reception from Danny Amendola to win the game.
“I did not. I felt like those two were both jostling for the ball and obviously, the penalty was called,” Chudzinski said in his postgame press conference. “So, at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter what I think.”
