In his rookie regular season with the Patriots he played in two games and attempted 24 passes and completed 13 of those passes for 183 yards and 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. Most of the action that he saw in 2005 came in the last game of the season vs Miami. In that game<ref>http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/live/NFL_20060101_MIA@NE</ref> he led the Patriots from behind to come within a two point conversion of tying the game and sending it into overtime. Both of Cassel's touchdown passes came in the last six minutes of the game.... In 2006 Matt became the the number two quarterback and the primary backup to [[Tom Brady]] on the Patriots roster.
