By Tim BrittonSeeing Tom Brady throw a critical interception in the end zone was surprising on Sunday; seeing Tiquan Underwood as the second receiver on the play may have been just as unexpected.
With Deion Branch struggling with a groin injury, Underwood got the nod over Chad Ochocinco and Julian Edelman in the goal-to-go situation. It's hard to blame Underwood for what ensued, with Josh Wilson undercutting him to pick Brady at the back of the end zone.
"One of the things we really stress here is how you practice and how you handle the game plan," offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien said. "We felt like Tiquan, along with the other guys we put out on the field there, were ready with the game plan and what we were trying to do with that. Obviously, we felt like they matched up well against some of the things that the Redskins were doing; him along with all the other guys that played in that game, those were the guys that we went into the game prepared to play with."
