It hasn't been perfect for rookie Bailey Zappe in his first NFL game, but he's doing everything he can to keep the Patriots in a game they were expected to lose.

A play after getting flagged for delay of game in the red zone, Zappe rebounded to throw a 25-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker on the very next snap. (The Patriots should've been called for delay of game on that play as well, but they'll take it!)

The touchdown capped off a seven-play, 75-yard drive and put the Patriots up 17-14 in a seesaw game with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

Watch the play here:

Zappe is now 8-of-12 passing for 72 yards and a fumble lost after that touchdown.
