Owen Daniels touchdown catch puts Broncos up 7-0

The Patriots said this week that they wanted to stop the Broncos run game.

They accomplished that on the opening drive of the game. The Broncos passing game was enough to put Denver on the board first, however.

Peyton Manning hit Owen Daniels for a 21-yard touchdown pass halfway through the first quarter to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead. It’s the second touchdown pass that Manning has thrown in Denver this season and both have gone to Daniels.

The Broncos came out throwing after forcing a Patriots punt and Manning got a first down to Emmanuel Sanders after two incompletions. He would hit Jordan Norwood and Andre Caldwell for first downs and a Logan Ryan pass interference penalty gave Denver a fourth first down on the way to the end zone.

Manning was 4-of-6 for 60 yards overall on the drive, including the 15-yarder to Caldwell that came on a play action bootleg that seemed to catch the Patriots off guard.

    Easy win. These cheats are all talk no action. Denver owns these clowns.

    Should lengthen his leash a bit huh?

    Gronk whines to refs early!

    Looks like the cheaters are in for a long day at mile high. Mr bundchen already whining for flags, that’s not a good omen.

    Like I said = Goodel has the Yellow Flags out against the Patriots but no obvious PI against the Broncos being called.

    Game is FIXED.

    The refs are told to help Denver…

  9. fanofpft says: Jan 24, 2016 3:30 PM

    Zone pass defense pats? Keep it up, and someone please level brady but good.

  10. skawh says: Jan 24, 2016 3:31 PM

    Great start for Peyton. Brady is only .500 on the road in AFC Championship games? Shocker!

    I hope Manning has a mega day of offense passing…just so i can sit back and laugh at all the Manning haters here. Personally i am not a fan of Manning or Broncos but i would love to see some of you all eat a big plate of crow.

    And to all the “Arm Chair” experts here saying Manning is done, well physically he might be but damn that guy can out gun the best coaches in the NFL with his smarts.

    Bottom line this is gonna be a war..

    Sit tight Bronco Fans there is a lot of game left to be played and remember the Patsies are the Hall of Fame of Cheaters!

    That would be the last game that got the pats here.

    More Flags from Hochuli against the Pats.

    Terrible to have to watch a fixed game by Goodel.

  16. contender21open says: Jan 24, 2016 3:39 PM

    Pat*riot fans are already making excuse and the first quarter isn’t over yet. LOL!

  17. doe22us says: Jan 24, 2016 3:39 PM

    The bigger question is what is the over or under of flags thrown by Hochuli crew, i say 20 plus, how the eff did they get a game.

  18. skinnylegspeytonmanning says: Jan 24, 2016 3:44 PM

    Ed Hoch really biased towards Denver.

  19. kurtrundell says: Jan 24, 2016 3:47 PM

    As a Chiefs fan, this is biased, but Denver is nothing but cheap-shot artists and muggers on defense. And they’re proving it so far. And KU’s own Aquib Talib is one of the worst.

  20. skawh says: Jan 24, 2016 3:49 PM

    So predictable trolls are whining about officiating

  21. dexx57 says: Jan 24, 2016 3:50 PM

    IBM watson ads are really creepy, Skynet

  22. fansrus says: Jan 24, 2016 3:52 PM

    Why wasn’t the picked up backwards pass a touchdown?
    Sims and Nantz silent.

  23. vancouversportsbro says: Jan 24, 2016 3:52 PM

    Malcolm butler isn’t so great when he doesn’t know what the other teams play call is.

  24. skawh says: Jan 24, 2016 3:52 PM

    Denver gives away momentum and an easy touchdown on a single play

  25. hivelocityimpactsplatter says: Jan 24, 2016 3:53 PM

    The Foxboro Excuse Factory in high gear.

  26. loserjet says: Jan 24, 2016 3:56 PM

    I’m not even watching the game because I know there no chance the pat can win not because they suck but I never see any got a win when they have to go up against the Commisioner and the ref.
    If the pat win I go buy a lottery

  27. skinnylegspeytonmanning says: Jan 24, 2016 3:56 PM

    Bad Tammy, Bad!

  28. skinnylegspeytonmanning says: Jan 24, 2016 4:00 PM

    Manning > Brady

    Am I lying?

  29. skawh says: Jan 24, 2016 4:03 PM

    Brady picked!

  30. contender21open says: Jan 24, 2016 4:07 PM

    This is fun to watch!

    Signed

    Another Hoch flag against Denver. Cheaters, what say you?

  32. skinnylegspeytonmanning says: Jan 24, 2016 4:16 PM

    Down goes Tammy! Hey tammy, how does it taste?

  33. skinnylegspeytonmanning says: Jan 24, 2016 4:23 PM

    Hoch hits Denver with another 15 yarder. Cheats?

  34. fanofpft says: Jan 24, 2016 4:28 PM

    Another Hoch flag against Denver. Cheaters, what say you?

    I say brady keeps throwing it to the wrong team. Which has zero to do with flags.
