Foxboro, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tom Brady threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins with five seconds remaining in the fourth quarter to lift the New England Patriots to a dramatic 30-27 win over the previously unbeaten New Orleans Saints at Gillette Stadium.

Things didn't look promising for New England when rookie wideout Aaron Dobson dropped a 4th-down pass.

The Patriots, trailing by a point, turned the ball over downs at their own 24- yard line with 2:46 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Garrett Hartley then kicked a 39-yard field goal to put the Saints up 27-23.

It became even more bleak for the Patriots as Brady threw an interception on first down of the ensuing drive.

However, the New England defense forced a second straight three-and-out. Brady got the ball back with 1:13 to play and the third time proved to be the charm as he led the Patriots on a game-winning drive.
