FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Tom Brady's 17-yard touchdown pass to Kenbrell Thompkins with 5 seconds left gave the New England Patriots a wild 30-27 win and knocked the New Orleans Saints from the ranks of the unbeaten Sunday.

It capped a 70-yard drive in which the Patriots marched downfield with no timeouts after getting the ball with 1:08 to go.

The Saints (5-1) had taken a 24-23 lead with 3:29 remaining on Drew Brees' 34-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills, but couldn't put away New England.

The Patriots (5-1) survived an interception by Keenan Lewis on their first snap after Garrett Hartley's 39-yard field goal made it 27-23.
