Carolina ties the game with 1:08 remaining, but John Kasay boots the ensuing kickoff out-of-bounds, giving New England the ball at its 40-yard line. The Pats drive, and with four seconds to go, Adam Vinatieri (4) splits the uprights from 41 yards out.
Trailing by 10 points with less than six minutes left, the Eagles reel off a 13-play, 79-yard TD drive but do so without going to a no-huddle offense. They burn nearly four minutes off the clock, forcing a last-ditch onside kick that the Patriots recover.
Getting the ball on a reverse around the right end, wideout Antwaan Randle El throws on the run and hits Hines Ward in stride for a 43-yard TD to give Pittsburgh a two-score lead with a little less than nine minutes remaining.
