Jan 7, 2014

In college football, Jameis Winston tossed a two-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds remaining to give Florida State a 34-31 comeback victory over Auburn in the last BCS championship game. Winston was 6 of 7 for 77 yards on a game-winning drive that took just 66 seconds and was engineered right after Tre Mason ran for a 37-yard touchdown to put the Tigers ahead 31-27 with 1:19 to play. The Heisman Trophy winner threw a pair of touchdown passes for the 14-0 Seminoles, who trailed 21-3 in the second quarter before winning their third national championship.

In the NFL, Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes in the final 61 seconds, helping the New England Patriots rally for a 27-26 victory over the Cleveland Browns yesterday. New England lost tight end Rob Gronkowski to a leg injury in the third quarter.
