The New England Patriots entered their week four matchup with the 6-4 Arizona Cardinals looking to return to their winning ways back home at Gillette Stadium after a tough loss in Houston.

Take a look back at all the best sights and sounds from social media as the game progressed below.

In the first quarter, the Cardinals got off to a fast start, taking a 10-0 lead thanks to a Kenyan Drake rushing touchdown and Zane Gonzalez 47 Yd Field Goal.

Needing a spark, newly signed wide receiver Donte Moncrief set the Patriots offense up with a short field to close out the quarter after breaking multiple tackles for a 53-yard kick return.

 

The kick helped setup a James White touchdown to give the Patriots their first points of the game early in the second quarter.

Clinging to a three point lead with the clock winding down on the first half, it appeared the Cardinals were in position to go up 14.

The Patriots defense had other ideas.

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury elected to go for it on fourth down at the goal line.

Entering halftime, despite the offensive struggles, the defense kept the Patriots right in the game and trailing by just three.

As the third quarter opened up, Patriots defensive tackle Adam Butler continued to have a dominant day.

After forcing a Cardinals punt, the Patriots capitalized on the ensuing drive and tied the game at ten.

With six and a half to go in the third quarter, the Patriots defense stepped up and forced a Kyler Murray interception on a tipped pass.

The Patriots offense cashed in on the turnover as James White found the end zone for a second time and gave the home team its first lead of the day.

17-10 Patriots through three quarters.

The Cardinals began the fourth quarter needing a response.

A Kenyan Drake touchdown for the second time tied the game at 17 all.

With two minutes to go in the game, it appeared the Cardinals were about to take the lead back, but Zane Gonzalez miss from 45 yards gave the Patriots a chance to win it.

A Nick Folk 50 yard field goal gave the Patriots their second last second victory of the season as the team moves to 5-6 on the season before heading out west to play the Chargers next Sunday.
