Patriots finally get a turnover, respond with touchdown

Nick Foles finally has an interception in the postseason, and it’s strange because the Patriots haven’t been creating any turnovers.

But the Eagles quarterback’s deep pass to Alshon Jeffery was just picked off by safety Duron Harmon, stopping Philadelphia’s offensive momentum for the moment.

The ball bounced off Jeffery’s hands on a deep third down, and Harmon was there to collect it at the Patriots’ 2-yard line.

The last time the Patriots created a turnover was in Week 15 against the Steelers, an unusual drought for a defense which has thrived on being timely.

New England took advantage of a defensive holding penalty to keep the next drive moving, and after a 43-yard pass to Chris Hogan, James White ran 26 yards for a touchdown which cut the Eagles lead to 15-12, after another miss by Stephen Gostkowski on the extra point.

  1. Defensive holding should not be an automatic first down. I don’t know how many games this year I witnessed a stalled drive get continued by this automatic first down nonsense. Penalty, yes. First down worthy, no.

  2. LSUstrong is an oxymoron, Notre Dame strong owns you clowns yet again, keep crying you patriot bandwagoning dufus

    Mills on the Eagles really stinks! He just gave up 7 points and can’t cover Hogan of all people!

    Must be one those special broadcasts in the PW. Because he didn’t give up a score. He did allow a big gain, like he has all season (on the double move). No touchdown tho

    Nice try, tho

    Mills gave up the hold that kept the drive alive, AND the 50 yard gain. Without that no NE score. A close observer would think that now that Cook is out of the game Philly would be able to cover the 3 remaining NE defenders. Mills is not an asset thus far, that’s all I’m saying.

    Bandwagoning? Wow. If you got your education at Notre Dame then I’m really disappointed in them because they sure failed you. You don’t seem to realize that even people from New England go to LSU?
