Patriots deliver a win for the ages

FOXBOROUGH — This one was right up there with the Bruins’ win against the Maple Leafs in Game 7 and David Ortiz’s season-changing grand slam against the Tigers. The Patriots should have imported Boston cop Steve Horgan to signal “good” when Stephen Gostkowski split the uprights early Monday morning.

On one of the coldest nights in Gillette Stadium history, the Patriots trailed Denver, 24-0, at halftime, then rallied to beat the Broncos, 34-31, in overtime. Gostkowski’s 31-yard field goal with less than two minutes left in overtime won it just before 12:30 a.m.
