Goodman did make contact but Branch pushed just enough to gain separation for the TD.
I didn’t think this would be a good game. NE is scary good. They are very much like the Packers in that it’s very difficult to know who is going to be getting the ball on each play (accept near the endzone when there is a 100% chance Gronkowski will get it). Very good team – if they meet Balt next week, it should be a tremendous game.
