The All Blacks avenged their loss to England a year ago by fighting back to win 30-22 at Twickenham, leaving them on target to complete the perfect year.
Scoring three tries to one, New Zealand survived the early injury departure of first five-eighth Dan Carter in his 100th Test and a muscular English forward effort to lodge their 13th win from 13 Tests in 2013.
Victory against Ireland in Dublin next week will see them become the first team in the professional era to finish a year with a 100 per cent record.
Their streak came under serious pressure from an impressive England, whose 38-21 win in December was New Zealand's last loss.
Aaron Cruden of the All Blacks makes a break.
