The Patriots comeback over the Browns would not have happened if not for an awesome on-side kick by Stephen Gostkowski.

The kick trickled 10 yards while the Patriots went full steam ahead at the Browns.

The Browns, however didn't have enough players go at the ball, which allowed Kyle Arrington to fall on it after it went off Browns running back Fozzy Whittaker.

Special teams ace Troy Brown commended the Pats for a job well done on the kick, and knows the Browns didn't do the right thing in trying to recover the ball.

"The one thing that Cleveland did wrong was that nobody ever attacked the football," Brown said. "When they attacked it was too late. I'm not sure, I know Whittaker he's an offensive player, but I'm not sure if he has the hands to be up on the front line being one of those guys to go after the football like that. So they may have had the wrong personnel in there at that particular time.

"Great design play by the Patriots because what you see now is that once the ball is kicked out of bounds you can't re-kick it ever again. So they do a good job of kicking the ball down the middle of the field to give themselves a chance to get the ball. And just a great play by so many guys getting blocks on people, taking people out of the equation, and then giving their guys a chance to come in and fall on the ball."
