Browns lose to Patriots during last-second momentum shift
A big momentum shift in the last minute of the game left the Browns with another loss Sunday.

It was a heartbreaking last-second loss for the Browns Sunday. Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes in the final 61 seconds, helping the New England Patriots rally for a 27-26 victory.

The Patriots (10-3) cut the deficit to 26-21 on Brady's 2-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman with 1:01 left. Then Kyle Arrington recovered the onside kick at the Cleveland 40-yard line.
 
Brady completed a 10-yard pass to Danny Amendola. Then Leon McFadden was called for defensive pass interference in the end zone. That put the ball at the 1 where Brady connected with Amendola again.

The Browns (4-9) then moved the ball to the Patriots 40 with 1 second left, but Billy Cundiff missed a 58-yard field goal.
New England lost tight end Rob Gronkowski to a leg injury in the third quarter.

Linebacker D'Qwell Jackson said the loss was not without a fight.
"The sense of urgency was there tonight," Jackson said. "Just from every phase of the game. We wanted this bad. This is a game where yeah, you wanna win, you're disappointed not to win. But man, guys stick to the process and we're gonna put ourselves finishing off with a better record than we've had in a long time around here."

Jackson was happy with the way the defense played, with the exception of just a few minutes of the game.

"Defensively, we gave them as many opportunities as possible," Jackson said. "Created two turnovers. You take away-- it was two minutes, three minutes of that game where it just totally-- the momentum shifted. And that's something where we just gotta learn to sustain and lead and be able to finish the game."

Quarterback Jason Campbell said the doubt that arose after last week's loss motivated the team this week.

"Our guys, we talked about all week being doubted as a football team," Campbell said. "Growth we're trying to improve on. You know, we just wanted to come out and compete at a high level and finish our four games out of the season. You know, coming together. See where we can really be if we just put everything behind us and focus on these games."

Coming so close made the loss hurt even more.

"We felt like it was a great opportunity against a team like New England, and forward progress for our football team," Campbell said. "To lose a game right there at the end like that, it definitely stings."
