Deion Branch made a huge 63-yard gain, which set up his second TD of the game, a one-handed four-yard fade pattern to the corner, beating Ellis Hobbs. The Seahawks have taken a 21-13 lead.
On the 63-yard play, Bill Belichick challenged that it was a catch. It was, after which Branch faked out Junior Seau, who looked every bit a 19-year veteran on the play. Branch then cut all the way across the field, got a couple big blocks, ran out of gas, deked a few more guys and finally was brought down at the 9.
If there was a game for Branch to play well, it was against his former team, which traded him to Seattle in 2006 after he did not get the contract he wanted.
