On the next play, and with the clock showing 13:49, Corey Dillon scored on a two-yard sweep. Brady (12) took the snap from center Dan Koppen, dropped back and handed the ball off to Dillon (28). Dillon followed the lead back, guard Russ Hochstein (71), who made a block on Brian Dawkins (20), into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown.
