All around New England, people were seeing the Patriots down double digits in the 2nd half to one of the NFL's best defenses. I could hear people moaning, saying "it's over", Eric beginning to do a toast, and in some cases, people getting ready for the post mortem show on the Big Jab tomorrow. Then something magical happened. Deion Branch put on a show, the defense looked like the defense from an era gone by, and the Patriots,when the dust settled, came out with a huge 23-20 OT win at home.
