21. On the Arm of Bledsoe

What: Regular season vs. Minnesota Vikings
Date: 11/13/1994

The 1994 season didn't start off promising for Drew Bledsoe and the Patriots. Bledsoe was playing as poorly as a quarterback can (4 TD, 11 INT during a four game losing streak) and the Patriots were a miserable 3-6. Down by 10 with less than 4:00 left in a regular season game against the Vikings, Bledsoe led a heroic comeback, and in the process, set an NFL record with seventy pass attempts. In overtime, Bledsoe ended the game by finding Kevin Turner in the end zone. The dramatic finish sparked a seven-game winning streak for New England who, after their pathetic start, slid into the playoffs.
