The New England Patriots are pulling out all the stops in a must-win Week 10 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. Cam Newton threw a backwards pass to wide receiver Jakobi Meyers, and then the receiver found Rex Burkhead with a dime of a pass for a 24-yard touchdown.

The Patriots are giving the Ravens a tough time in the first half, and it’s not surprising to see Bill Belichick emptying out the playbook in this one. Meyers played quarterback in high school and was recruited to NC State at the position. He moved to wide receiver after his freshman year.

Lost in the trick play is that Rex Burkhead is having himself a heck of a half on Sunday Night Football. He has three receptions for 34 yards and that trick play score was his second touchdown of the game. The Patriots are leading 13-10 as halftime approaches.
