FOXBORO, Mass. -- All right guys, get ready to roll highlight film of Patriots QB Tom Brady throwing to Deion Branch.
But first, cue up the music from Peaches and Herb.
"Reunited and it feels so good..."
Now, let's see the video ... the New England crowd cheering when Branch makes his first catch, late in the first quarter ... Brady finding Branch in the back of the end zone for a touchdown in the fourth quarter . . . show Branch taking a bow . . . and, finally, the third-and-2 play, with overtime winding down, and the Patriots needing a first down to get Stephen Gostkowski into his comfort range for a game-winning field goal ... there it is -- Brady to Branch for 10 to the Ravens' 21.
Cut to the scoreboard, showing Patriots 23, Ravens 20.
Bring up the music again...
"Reunited and it feels so good..."
They're together again, Tom and Deion, teaming up Sunday for the first time since 2005.
It was just like old times, as Brady and Branch combined to spark a fourth-quarter comeback that left everyone in Gillette Stadium beaming.
"Tom and I have been away four years," Branch said, "but it's like I never left. I'm used to being in that situation with this team and that guy. I honestly don't feel like we missed a beat."
It sure didn't look it.
The last season that he teamed with Brady, Branch was the Patriots' leading receiver, making 78 catches.
Sunday in his first game in a New England uniform since the final game of the '05 season, Branch again was the Pats' leading receiver, making nine catches for 98 yards and a touchdown.
The TD grab was big. But his third-down catch that set up Gostkowski's 35-yard field goal in overtime may have been even bigger.
"That was a great play by Tom," Branch said of the TD toss on which Brady bounced around a bit in the pocket to buy time before finding Branch in the end zone. "When you see that play, when you see how he moves in the pocket, that's what enabled me to move around in back of the defense.
"Tom makes it easy. I wish every receiver could get to play with this guy. He's amazing."
What was amazing was the instant rekindling of the chemistry that existed between Brady and Branch when they were winning Super Bowls in 2003 and 2004.
Branch had 10 receptions for 143 yards and a touchdown in Super Bowl XXXVIII, when the Patriots beat Carolina, 32-29. The following year, Branch was voted MVP of Super Bowl XXXIX after tying a Super Bowl record with 11 receptions, good for 133 yards, as the Patriots edged the Eagles, 24-21.
"I've been throwing balls to him for a long time," Brady said. "That chemistry is there, and it will be there for a long time. He made some big catches."
Branch said his wife, Shola, wasn't thrilled when she first heard last week she'd have to move their three children from Seattle to Foxboro.
"I had to calm her down," Branch said. "I told her: 'Baby, we're going back home.' The kids will be OK going to school in New England."
Brady, too, had to be calmed down after he heard Branch would be coming "home" to the Patriots. "They pretty much had to hold Tom back in practice Tuesday," Branch said. "He all was antsy, saying: 'I've got to get you the ball.' He was excited. I was excited, too."
With the game on the line, getting the ball to Branch was exactly what Brady wanted to do.
They connected seven times in the fourth quarter and in overtime, the first time being that improvised 5-yard TD toss that trimmed the Patriots' deficit to three points, 20-17.
The drive that led to the overtime-forcing field goal started at the New England 14. Brady and Branch got it rolling with a 22-yard completion, then connected three more times for short gains totaling 15 yards.
It was another pass to Branch that jump-started the game-winning drive in overtime, Brady hitting him for 23 yards on first down at the Patriots' 38 with 5:19 remaining.
Then, on third-and-2 at the Baltimore 31, Brady and Branch combined for a 10-yard gain that made what would have been a tough kick for Gostkowski pretty much routine.
"I haven't felt this way in four years," Branch said. "I truly haven't had this feeling in a long time."
A musical encore.
"Reunited and it feels so good."
