FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots are making the amazing look automatic.

Week after week, comeback after unlikely comeback, they startle fans and foes by finding ways to win.

They've done that the past three games in wins over the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns.

The Patriots trailed at halftime in all three games but beat Denver and Houston 34-31 and Cleveland 27-26.

They topped the Browns with two touchdowns and a recovered onside kick in the last 61 seconds on Sunday.

Special teams captain Matthew Slater says that sometimes the stars align in your favor. He says the Patriots have had the ball bounce their way a lot this season and aren't going to question why.

They're just happy it's happened that way.
