The New England Patriots head into the soft part of their schedule after a stunning comeback win over the Denver Broncos.

The Patriots beat the NFL's top offense 34-31 in overtime after trailing 24-0 at halftime Sunday night.

Defensive end Chandler Jones says that no matter what the score, the Patriots just keep going. And he says that should be the motto for all teams.

The Patriots lost fumbles on their first three possessions then scored on their first five of the second half.

Defensive end Rob Ninkovich says that some recent games have been decided near the end so the Patriots keep fighting to pull out wins.

The Patriots (8-3) have five games left starting with the Houston Texans (2-9) on Sunday.
