Tom Brady and the Patriots stay undefeated.

The New England Patriots will stay undefeated and improves to 9-0 after a close win from Stephen Gostkowski’s 54-yard field goal at 1 second remaining.

It was the best of National Football League, as the New England Patriots and New York Giants went toe to toe for the full 60 minutes on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, and entertained in a highly competitive, highly charged matchup that felt like a playoff game.

After Josh Brown made his fourth field goal of the game with 1:47 remaining, Tom Brady drove the Patriots 44 yards, converting a fourth-and-10 on the series.

Gostkowski, the NFL’s leading scorer the last three seasons, sent his winning kick soaring through the uprights.

The Giants (5-5) have given the Patriots fits under Tom Coughlin and nearly pulled off another victory.

But New England proved unbeatable with field goals only, and a 5-yard pass to Odell Beckham Jr. on New York’s final drive was originally called a touchdown, then reversed by a video review.

Both Beckham and New England’s Rob Gronkowski had the longest TD catches of their careers: Beckham for 87 yards and Gronkowski for 76.

Nonetheless, there may be obstacles ahead for the Patriots.

Their number one receiver Julian Edelman left the game on the final play of the first quarter with a left foot injury and did not return.

Edelman slammed his helmet to the ground when he came off the field; and when it comes to players the Patriots can least afford to lose, Edelman is arguably right there behind quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski.

The Patriots would also host the Buffalo Bills who had just beaten the New York Jets by 22-17 as visitors. The team will be well rested following four consecutive days of R&R.
