Tom Brady is a mere 2-6 in Denver

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has vaulted from pick No. 199 to arguably the best quarterback in NFL history. Along the way, he has been anything but the best quarterback in Denver.

As noted this morning by ESPN, Brady has won only two of eight career games in Denver. Those two wins came against a pair of current ESPN employees: Danny Kanell and Tim Tebow.

Brady’s first career game in Denver came in 2001, the year he replaced Drew Bledsoe after Bledsoe suffered a sheared blood vessel in his chest. Brady threw four interceptions in the fourth quarter in a 31-20 loss to Denver and Brian Griese (who also works for ESPN).

Two years later, Brady gained redemption with a Monday night win in Denver, secured by an 18-yard touchdown pass to David Givens with 30 seconds to play. The losing quarterback was Kanell, who made his third straight start in place of Jake Plummer and Steve Beuerlein. (The game featured Bill Belichick’s decision to take an intentional safety, which happened while the Pats were down 24-23 with 2:51 to play.)

Two years later, Brady lost twice in Denver. During the regular season, Plummer led the Broncos to a 28-20 win after building a 25-point lead. In the postseason, Plummer and the Broncos won by 14 in a game that turned on a 100-yard interception return by Denver cornerback Champ Bailey, who actually didn’t score on the play. The momentum-changer came as the Patriots trailed 10-6 and were moving in for the go-ahead score.

Brady wouldn’t return to Denver for four seasons, losing in overtime on a first-possession field goal to former Broncos coach (and current Patriots offensive coordinator) Josh McDaniels and quarterback Kyle Orton.

After a 41-23 drubbing of Tebow and company in 2011 in a game that was one of the most anticipated of the year, the Patriots returned for the 2013 AFC title game, losing to Peyton Manning, 23-13. This year, Brady and company lost to Brock Osweiler in Denver, in overtime.

So the losses have come to Griese, Plummer (twice), Orton, Manning, and Osweiler. Which but for Manning is hardly a murderer’s row of quarterbacks. Which means that maybe Manning and company shouldn’t be three-point underdogs in this one.

    The game with the intentional safety was the last time I questioned Belichick ever…….and the fact that you people are still stuck talking about Brady is victory for me….win or lose ……..its been a good year

  3. metalhead65 says: Jan 18, 2016 8:43 AM

    yeah all those qb’s he lost to in Denver sure played great defense against Brady didn’t they? if the steeler’s guy doesn’t fumble you would talking about where will manning play next year if at all and how he is a lousy post season qb.

  4. tim2200 says: Jan 18, 2016 8:44 AM

    Brady usually does not play well in Denver.
    That said, Brady sounded as relaxed and confident as ever during his weekly radio interview. this morning.
    The game earlier this season in Denver, where Patriot mistakes and not the Broncos beat them, has given that team a lot of confidence heading into Sunday.

  5. rootpain says: Jan 18, 2016 8:48 AM

    After watching Manning play last night I agree that Manning and company shouldn’t be three points underdogs. They should be 12 point + underdogs.
    There was nothing about the Broncos that looked strong. And Manning has had more than one season’s worth of undeserved wins this year. It all gets reconciled next week. Brady and the Patriots win big.

  6. infectorman says: Jan 18, 2016 8:50 AM

    Denver looked awful yesterday. They’re gonna need more than that mess to beat NE. They completely lucked out in week 12 and that win was due to the D and CJ. Pitt was undermanned.
    When NE wins by 10, giving 3 will look like a bargain to bettors

  7. 15YearsandBradyStillRunsYourTeam says: Jan 18, 2016 8:50 AM

    This is a different New England team than who they played earlier this season. It just is.

    Their defense, and offense, is much better than that of the Steelers. If the Broncos play them the same way they played Pittsburgh, they will be crushed.

    I’d rather see the Pats headed to the AFCC in Denver than be one of the sad, pathetic souls who have only one joy this time of year, praying the Pats will lose and making whiny comments on message boards about them.

  10. touchdownelvis says: Jan 18, 2016 8:53 AM

    That interception by Champ Bailey may be one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen on a football field. No, not Bailey’s pick and run, but Ben Watson’s effort to get across the field diagonally, catch Bailey (remember, this is a tight end chasing a cornerback here), and force the fumble.

    That 28 yard sack on 4th down was impressive. Don’t think I’ve ever seen another QB do that.

  17. ikeclanton says: Jan 18, 2016 9:02 AM

    The Giants remain unwatchable, literally, because they aren’t on television during the annual playoff season.

    The Patriots over the years have been a good lesson on how to play football correctly in all 3 phases of the game–a testament to outstanding coaching in execution.

  18. thegronk87 says: Jan 18, 2016 9:04 AM

    brady doesn’t play great in Denver? He had 280 yards and 3 TDs without Edelman or Amendola back in November. In the last AFCCG in Denver he was throwing to Ren and Stimpy.

  19. magnumpimustache says: Jan 18, 2016 9:05 AM

    So there is a 33% chance Brady makes it to his 7th super bowl.

    I’ll take those odds.

    Win or lose the Patriots have put together another enjoyable season.

  20. itoitoitosite says: Jan 18, 2016 9:05 AM

    This year Pats team traveled to Denver on a short week. Traveled across the country after a physical Monday night game. Already down amendola, Edelman, Collins and then losing Hightower/Gronk in the game. Muffed punt by a guy who wont be in the game this week and Frankenstein Chandler won’t be one of the main passing options. Pats still almost won that game.

    Know how hard it is to consistently throw these kind of passes in traffic, cutting a defense up with perfect timing, precision, accuracy and touch? Tommy “Two Yard Slant” does it better than pretty much anyone. Unwatchable? Watching Brady work is watching greatness every week.

    Go stick with your boy Joey “throw it deep and pray for a flag” Flacco. Because you know, that’s much more difficult to do as a QB.

  22. graylingskies says: Jan 18, 2016 9:16 AM

    Yah, Brady’s been a little flat in those Denver games. Not Tom’s fault it is what it is, 12.5 psi @ sea level = 5 psi @ mile high altitude.

    Plummer and the Broncos won by 14 in a game that turned on a 100-yard interception return by Denver cornerback Champ Bailey, who actually didn’t score on the play.

    Ben Watson chased him down from the other side of the field to prevent the TD. Baily lost the ball…and it went through the endzone. It should have been a safety with the patriots getting the ball back.

  25. TeeHeeLOLatPatsHaters says: Jan 18, 2016 9:20 AM

    Broncos should start Osweiler instead of PEDton.

  26. piratefreedom says: Jan 18, 2016 9:22 AM

    Having Gronk, Edelman and Amendola for the whole game will matter more than how Jake Plummer and Champ Baily played 14 years ago.

    Denver has had some really good teams over the years and when they didn’t they probably didn’t play the Pats because, in the AFC west, most years playing the Pats requires finishing first in your division the previous year.

  27. luckyarmpit says: Jan 18, 2016 9:22 AM

    Here’s to hoping he’s 2-7 after next week *fingers crossed*

    The Pats deferred after winning the coin toss in overtime vs. the Jets. The relevance of this inexplicable move will soon become painfully obvious.

  31. joetoronto says: Jan 18, 2016 9:36 AM

    Blah, blah, blah. Take the -3 while you can get it, the Pats should win this game easily.

  32. TeeHeeLOLatPatsHaters says: Jan 18, 2016 9:37 AM

    Belichick clearly punted on HFA and the #1 seed in exchange for getting his players healthy.

    And now it seems that approach might just pay off.

    Not saying what Brady does isn’t impressive. I was actually paying him a compliment you defensive pats fans you. And no… I won’t be watching. Haven’t watched a down of the AFC playoffs. Snore.

    I’ll watch the SB and root for the pats if they make it. As a Giants fan, it makes toms “yet but” on his epitaph that much brighter.

  34. TeeHeeLOLatPatsHaters says: Jan 18, 2016 9:40 AM

    I can stomach the 2005 loss @ DEN. Let’s face it the 2005 Patriots had taken a step backwards since the Super Bowl year and that pass defense couldn’t stop a nosebleed. Probably would have lost to the Steelers the following week and the thought of that gives me a headache.
    🙂

  35. profish13 says: Jan 18, 2016 9:42 AM

    Well after the Steelers fumbled the game away, I have no dog in this race.

    I’m just hoping Peyton has a much better showing since this is most likely the last Peyton vs Brady showdown. Win or lose, it would be sad to see Peyton play that way in this game.

  36. brian91388 says: Jan 18, 2016 9:47 AM

    Is this article arguing that present day Peyton Manning is a significantly better QB than those versions of Griese, Plummer, Peyton (from 3 years ago) and Osweiler? I mean, Tom Brady has more TD’s in Denver this season than Peyton does.

  37. packergator says: Jan 18, 2016 9:49 AM

    A Bronco win will have more to do with dominating the line of scrimmage against the Pats’ OL (not impossible after watching that Pats-Steelers game) than with Peyton picking the NE secondary apart.

  38. daveydawg says: Jan 18, 2016 9:54 AM

    More concerned with the refs than the Broncos. They handed Denver the game last time. Fact.

    I don’t mind this story because it is what it is. The Pats have had trouble winning in Denver for a lot of reasons. What I don’t like is the way Manning is coddled by media. Where is the story about the fact Manning has been the key part of an amazing NINE 1 and dones in his playoff career. A record that is made more stunning by fact 8 of those game his team was the favorites.

    Why isn’t there a story questioning why Manning STILL doesn’t have a .500 record for the playoffs. That’s hard to believe for a quarterback that the media wants you to believe is Tom Brady’s equal.

    Peyton Manning was truly a great QB, arguably the best REGULAR season QB in league history. But in the argument about who is the GOAT, that sorry playoff record should take him out of the discussion completely. When it comes to the GOAT there can be only 2 guys in the discussion. Brady and Montana…..and that’s a discussion for another time.

    This is what its all about. The best two teams going for broke. So happy that it turned out this way.

    This is gonna be one of those games that we remember for a long time.

    Brady is 2-6 at Denver mainly because of Mike Shannahan, the same Mike Shannahan most of the posters here bash.

    Shannahan and the Broncos were always the Patriots’ kryptonite.

  47. goattoday says: Jan 18, 2016 10:19 AM

    Please stop making excuses for the Pats losing to Denver a few weeks ago. Pats were hurt, not getting calls and Denver played a good game. And Steelers fans, you’re right. That fumble may have cost you the game. That’s why fumbling is bad.

    Pats are healthy, so is Denver. Both earned their spots in this game. This could be good!

  48. luckyforus says: Jan 18, 2016 10:30 AM

    The hypocrisy coming from the Patriots organization and fans is almost as delusional as the cheating they deny.

    Whenever the Patriots are caught cheating or they lose, they always have excuses and deflect the real truth.

    We lost because of injuries or bad calls by the refs. (Truth – you were helped greatly in last year’s super bowl because Seattle’s defense was decimated by injuries).

    Spygate was about taping 30 feet in the wrong spot. (Then why were the tapes destroyed. Unless you know what was on the tapes, don’t pretend you know what spygate was about. Also Goodell’s buddy Kraft’s team was fined heavily and penalized a 1st round draft pick. This would not happen over 30 feet. )

    There’s no evidence the footballs were deflated. (yes the deflator and all the circumstantial evidence disagree. And the Patriots were fined heavily for cheating).

    It’s a witch hunt. Everyone hates us. (Everyone hates the way you win and your arrogance. Belicheat knows the rules better than anyone and he knows how to bend and break them).

    The Broncos cheated the salary cap to win 2 Super Bowls and to date they are the only team in NFL history to be fined for taping another teams practices. (So were the Broncos cheaters? No. Did they break league rules regarding player payment? Yes, members of the organization did, unbeknownst to Pat Bowlen and Mike Shanahan. And then those employees got canned. Connecting Spygate to the Broncos cap issues is as ridiculous as it comes. What the Broncos did was defer salary to players to improve cash flow for their new stadium. They included this deferred salary in the cap for the appropriate year so no competitive edge was obtained. Did the Patriots fire Belicheat? Also the coach of the Broncos during the taping was Josh McDaniels who was fined also. You leave that out. I wonder where he learned that.)

    Also when you keep trashing Peyton Manning, remember he has better playoff stats than Tom Brady. It’s a team game and the Patriots have had the better team more often than not. Has Tom Brady ever beaten a Belicheat coached team? Has Tom Brady won a super bowl without a top 1o defense, great special teams and questionable coaching?

    Tom Brady is obvious one of the best QB’s ever, but it’s all tainted by the cheating. If Peyton, Ben, Brees, or Rodgers was the Patriots QB, the Patriots would still win. Do you think Brady would have won 4 SB’s with the Colts and their generally poor defense, special teams and questionable coaching. I doubt it.

    And btw, I’m not a butt hurt loser. You are. And if you win the SB this year, it might be the first time you did it without cheating. But then we will never really know.

  49. savethebs says: Jan 18, 2016 10:37 AM

    Lately it seems like every time the Pats make it to the Super Bowl the AFC field obliterates itself for them. They never seem to have to win tough games against good teams to get there. They usually get a bye due to playing in a crappy division. Then they get 2 cupcake playoff games & they’re in! It’s a great formula.

    I mean, did anyone really see KC coming in (with that offense?!?) & beating the Pats? No. Does anyone think Manning (with his dead arm) can win in January? No. I was telling everyone that the Pats should walk into the Super Bowl this year, like they do every time they make it. The AFC is hot garbage. Same as it was last year. Same as it was in 2011.

    The Ravens, admittedly, were pretty good in 2011 & played them tough. But they also should have beat them & GAVE that game away.

    “Manning and company shouldn’t be three-point underdogs in this one.”

  51. joegill576 says: Jan 18, 2016 10:57 AM

    People have commented about the Broncos circumventing the salary cap, as though it was like the Larry Bird exemption in the NBA. I’m pretty sure that’s not the whole truth, it also allowed the Broncos to sign the top defensive free agent that year, Neil Smith away from KC. On ESPN Mark Schlereth says over and over again that the playoff loss to Jacksonville the previous year was the worst of his career. In 1996 they couldn’t stop Jacksonville, in 1997 they had salary cap space for the top DE in free agency, well kinda. At the time I was sure that the Broncos would not have the salary cap space for Neil Smith,yet they signed him. The story about the Broncos only doing this to pay Elway and Davis is bs, they weren’t going anywhere.

    Spygate was about taping 30 feet in the wrong spot. OMG an actual fact for the haters. Woot woot!! Let’s all hang our hats on a single incident that got caught and addressed and use it to deny history. The Patriots even got their library of legally obtained tapes destroyed so they worked from a disadvantage as they went on to a Super Bowl that year.

    There’s no evidence the footballs were deflated. That was what the NFL’s statement was when speaking under oath in a court of law.

    It’s a witch hunt. It’s all we can do is hunt witches because we can’t beat you in a game. Everyone hates the way you win and considers it arrogance that you won’t hate it with us. Belichick knows the rules better than anyone and he routinely uses his better knowledge to out think the opposing coach. It’s so annoying.

    The Broncos cheated the salary cap to win 2 Super Bowls and to date they are the only team in NFL history to be fined for taping another teams practices. But this is not about that. It’s about how I hate Tom Brady.

    Also when the manning haters keep trashing Peyton manning that’s just as ridiculous as the Brady haters. the playoff losses are not because of Manning. It’s a team game and the Patriots have a better team. Let’s admit the Manning is a great and we should all be enjoying what he has brought to the game his entire career.

    The Patriots have always had trouble Denver, at least since the Broncos drafted Elway (and maybe prior to that, too). But this feels like a different matchup. Brady has most of his best guys around him this time. The pass rush is outstanding and should be able to get after Manning. I don’t put anything past him, though. He’s a great player and if he has one last great game in him, well, that’ll be interesting. (Last time I checked, long-term forecasts say upper 40’s and partly cloudy in Denver, and the game is early, so weather shouldn’t be a factor for Manning.) But his arm just doesn’t look the same.

    If I had any money to wager, I’d take the Pats at -3. My guess is NE 30 Den 20.

    The Patriots are an amazing bad weather team… but in this case bad weather would be in Denver’s favor IMO. The Patriots are injured at RB and don’t have a CJ Anderson and Hillman that can pound the rock and make guys miss.

    Good weather would favor the likes of Edelman and Gronk catching darts from Brady and neutralize any DEN pass rush.

    More concerned with the refs than the Broncos. They handed Denver the game last time. Fact.

    LMAO. Now you know how the rest of the NFL feels about NE.

    Imagine what the NE games would look like if his O-line actually got called for the holding they routinely get away with?!

    Brady is 2-6 at Denver mainly because of Mike Shannahan, the same Mike Shannahan most of the posters here bash.

    Shannahan and the Broncos were always the Patriots’ kryptonite.

    Gary Kubiak was Shanahan’s OC, guess who is coaching the Broncos this week.

    Go all the way back to when Elway was the QB in Denver. It’s always been a house of horrors for the Pats. I don’t think anyone should be taking this lightly.

    There are demons to be exorcised in Denver, and it will make the Super Bowl that much sweeter if Brady and Bill can send Peyton and the Donks packing along the way.

    It’s only fitting that the World Champions get to exorcise the demons in Denver on their way to a repeat.

    “The Broncos cheated the salary cap to win 2 Super Bowls and to date they are the only team in NFL history to be fined for taping another teams practices.”

    This annoys me to no end. Get your facts straight. The Broncos deferred John Elway and Terrell Davis’ salary and circumvented the cap to help pay for costs related to the construction of Invesco Field at Mile High. The savings against the cap was not used to pick up new players to get a competitive advantage. This is very well documented.

    As for the taping, this happened when JOSH MCDANIELS, former Patriots offensive coordinator was head coach in Denver! That was the last straw, and Bowlen kicked him to the curb where, despite getting in trouble again for tapping teams, was hired back by the Patriots.

    As long as Chris Harper is inactive they will be fine. And justintuckrule, your dumb Maras just pushed out the coach who won those two Super Bowls while the GOAT and BB on still with the Patriots .

    I’m so glad you agree, Broncos cheater.

    It doesn’t matter what the record is right now let’s play football.
    Denver should be the favorite in this game hell they bought the title and blew it against Seattle. Oh I forgot Mannings post seaon record is 12 wins and 13 losses I hope he doesn’t choke AGAIN……
    But Denver likes to cry that New England cheats and Gronks pushes off, but Denver will run pick plays and poke people in the eyes. Oh I forgot about the HGH thing with Manning.

    Time to put the foreheads career on ice. Brady and the Pats are going to finish the job and send the Pats to Super Bowl 50.

    These Patriots fans are hilarious. This game is going to be close because that’s how Denver plays their games. Go look back ALL 17 games were a one possession game in the 4th quarter and Denver won almost all of them. The Broncos are grinders and they’re going to grind you to the 4th quarter then run over your gassed defense with their superior run game.

    Welcome to the Mile High City! Patriots defense will be huffing and puffing for air while CJ and Ronnie run yo butts over! SUPER BOWL 50 HERE WE COME BRONCOS COUNTRY!

    This is a different New England team than who they played earlier this season. It just is.

    Their defense, and offense, is much better than that of the Steelers. If the Broncos play them the same way they played Pittsburgh, they will be crushed.
    ———-

    Wait until the injury reports come out Friday and see how much of that “much better” defense (not really) is on it and may not play in a couple of instances.
