On Thursday night, the New England Patriots faced off against the New York Giants in a matchup of teams on completely different tiers.
New England entered the game with an undefeated record and arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history, Tom Brady, under center. New York, meanwhile, entered the game with a rookie quarterback, Daniel Jones, and a 2-3 record.
The Patriots opened up an early lead thanks to a blocked punt returned for a touchdown and a short rushing touchdown.
However, the Giants answered right back with a touchdown pass from Jones to wide receiver Golden Tate and a fumble recovered for a touchdown to knot the game at 14.
Unfortunately for the Patriots, things got worse.
Star wide receiver Josh Gordon suffered an apparent leg injury while trying to make a tackle on the fumble recovery.
Video of the play is tough to watch.

Gordon left the game and immediately entered the medical tent.
New England lost star tight end Rob Gronkowski to retirement before the season. But that’s not all. The Patriots cut star wide receiver Antonio Brown after allegations of sexual assault surfaced.
Now they could be without Gordon – though it’s unclear for how long.
Stay tuned for an update on Gordon.
