Stephen Gostkowski picked a perfect moment for a Patriots milestone.

New England’s All-Pro specialist kicked a game-winning 54-yard field goal against the New York Giants in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The deciding kick came with just one second remaining and sealed a 27-26 win for the Patriots. It extended the team’s unbeaten 2015 record to 9-0.

Gostkowski’s kick was set up by a five-completion drive orchestrated by Tom Brady. On fourth-and-one from the Giants’ 36-yard line, Gostkowski lined up for his 21st field goal attempt of the 2015 season. He had converted his first 20 attempts this year, including a 31-yard field goal earlier against the Giants. He got this one between the uprights too, giving him the most made career field goals in Patriots history.
