Broncos hit Brady more times than any quarterback has been hit all year

Zz0wN2JkMmI2OGZiNzg5MzczZWI0NDc0NjFiYmY1Nzc5Yg== AP

Eight years ago, the Giants showed the world how to beat the Patriots: Get to Tom Brady, early, often, repeatedly.

It’s easier said than done, since it requires defensive players with the ability to get to Brady before he can get rid of the ball quickly. But the Broncos did it, and did it well, on Sunday, hitting Brady 20 times, via Ben Volin of the Boston Globe. That’s more than any quarterback was hit in any game for the 2015 season.

It’s more than twice the number of hits the Broncos applied to Brady in a regular-season overtime win over New England. But that happened without receiver Julian Edelman and with tight end Rob Gronkowski exiting late due to a knee injury. With both Edelman and Gronkowski available this time, it was supposed to be better.

Via Pro Football Focus, 12 of the hits came in 39 pass plays with a four-man rush. Pressure was created on nearly half the pass plays with only four players rushing Brady — allowing Denver’s defense to blanket Brady’s five options in the passing game with seven players.

“We really talked about it all week that it’s going to be one of those quick-passing games,” linebacker DeMarcus Ware told reporters after the game. “Somebody asked me a question, they said, ‘If he gets the ball off in 1.9 seconds, what are you guys going to do if you can’t get any rush?’ I said, ‘Well, we’ve got to be a little bit faster and get there at 1.8.’ There was in the meeting last week — the game was going to be won in the trenches, and we said as the defensive line, we have to be able to get pressure on him in all situations. It might not be a sack, but we have to let him know that our presence is there. He felt that tonight.”

Tackles Sebastian Vollmer and Marcus Cannon felt it, too, with Ware and Von Miller repeatedly beating them. And that will likely keep Panthers tackles Michael Oher and Mike Remmers up at night for the next 13 of them as a Broncos team with a much better defense heads back to the Super Bowl, intent on winning it this time.

But it will be a different challenge for the Broncos against the Panthers, it will be harder to catch, grab, and knock down Cam Newton.

    Amazing how this defense is still overlooked. Expect them to thrive off the doubters

  5. edelmanfanclub says: Jan 25, 2016 9:44 AM

    I dont get the whole Brady is wuss thing. I am surprised he made it through that game in one piece. The pass protection was horrific. 23 hits allowed, from a team playing in the AFC Championship game? That’s awful. Brady threw a couple bad passes and this Denver D under Wade Phillips is fantastic but that offensive line play was something you’d expect from a team picking in the top 5 in April not a team one game away from the Super Bowl.

  6. PATRIOTSDYNASTYLIVES says: Jan 25, 2016 9:46 AM

    They just knocked him down again when he got off the team bus………win with them……lose with them

    _______________________
    Actually, the game stats from the NFL show Brady knocked down 26 times in 56 pass attempts. Trust the NE media to try to diminish the true numbers.

  9. floratiotime says: Jan 25, 2016 9:54 AM

    I was surprised to see Gronk crying all game long too. I thought he was better than that.

  10. veddermn8 says: Jan 25, 2016 9:54 AM

    Going to love it when Brock Osweiler comes out mid way through the 3rd quarter to attempt to mount a 24 point comeback after Peyton throws 3 picks.

  11. cbass59 says: Jan 25, 2016 9:55 AM

    The Pats looked deflated after that loss yesterday.

  12. haslamdrinkshisownpee says: Jan 25, 2016 9:55 AM

    The game should have to be replayed. Completely unfair advantage for Denver. First you won’t let bellicheck have their coaches hand signals, and a video tape of their practices, and now Tommy can’t Doctor the ball? It is seriously the NFL versus the patriots, making them follow rules and stuff. Garbage.

  13. hivelocityimpactsplatter says: Jan 25, 2016 9:55 AM

    But but but, karma?
    remember when all those Patriots fans were saying how you rile up Tommy Cheat “at your peril”? What happened? Couldn’t jam the headsets? No pregame spying?
    Weird

  14. 6ball says: Jan 25, 2016 9:58 AM

    .
    The Patriots offensive line never really recovered from the loss of LT Nate Solder. That forced Vollmer to switch from RT to LT and Cannon, who is a stopgap LT at best, to be asked to contain Miller, Ware et al. The Denver defense clearly won the battle.

    It was an outstanding game plan by Wade Phillips and executed to near perfection by the Broncos. It’s hard to say which group was better, Lbs, DBs, or D-line. All were excellent.

    It won’t be long before we hear publicly from Mrs. Brady – “my husband can’t block for himself, throw it, and catch it.”

  17. gmen05 says: Jan 25, 2016 10:01 AM

    I really enjoyed the “noodle arm”, “we’re going to destroy the Broncos”, “one and done”, and “we’re healthy now. Denver doesn’t have a chance” comments all last week. While Peyton didn’t necessarily win them the game, he certainly didn’t lose it either. 2 TDs and 0 INTs against a good defense is much better than 1 TD and 2 INTs (well, 3 if you count that INT on the failed 2 point conversion). I even saw a meme of Brady holding a baby Manning that said “Daddy is coming to Denver to visit you this weekend”. Guess that flight got cancelled due to the storm lol.

    Haha. See, this is why some Patriots fans’ arrogance makes it so fun to see them lose. Not because other teams are jealous of their success, but because of their obnoxious trash talking and blatant disrespect for a legend like Peyton Manning, who is now 3-1 AGAINST BRADY IN THE AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.

    Classic.

  18. vikingforlife says: Jan 25, 2016 10:01 AM

    Okay, if he looked at that booboo on his left arm ONE time I was GOING TO SCREAM!!! You know HE KNEW the cameras were on him! SUCK IT UP!!! He reminded me of Cutler for ****** sake!! Give me a break!

  19. billytodd2013blbaad says: Jan 25, 2016 10:02 AM

    it all starts up front with the o-line and the pats don’t have one!

  20. surfinbird1 says: Jan 25, 2016 10:05 AM

    Brady should retire if they continue to keep that kind of offensive line around to protect him. To say Brady is soft is absurd.
    Btw, Cannon should be the first to go.

  21. tajuara says: Jan 25, 2016 10:16 AM

    As much as you dislike Brady, you have to admire his toughness. Unlike other times, I didn’t see him complaining after the hits. He played a great game despite his OL being MIA the entire game.

  22. somethinghappeninghere says: Jan 25, 2016 10:17 AM

    The ONLY way to beat the Pats is to beat the crap outta Tom Brady! That’s how the Jets did it in week 16, and Miami did it in week 17 (without Wake no less)–and why the Bills couldn’t beat the Pats: no pass rush…betcha Bills fans will just love another idiot Ryan on their team’s sidelines!

  23. packerblitz says: Jan 25, 2016 10:17 AM

    ——————–
    In the times i’ve watched the Patriots Cannon i would have imagined to be gone regardless of what happened over the season. Poor play….when you have a top 5 pass rusher like Von Miller…..and this is the reason all us Denver fans KNEW we had a chance despite being totally written off.

  28. rogergoodellisatwat says: Jan 25, 2016 10:27 AM

    GOAT status confirmed. We’ve all seen what happen when Manning gets moved off his spot–never mind hit. It’s not pretty. Brady’s protection was horrendous but he kept battling and nearly won the game on the last play. Manning would have thrown a record number of pick sixes and been beaten like a donkey.

  29. flash1287 says: Jan 25, 2016 10:28 AM

    Peyton Manning, who is now 3-1 AGAINST BRADY IN THE AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.

    And if Manning and his team gets beat again in the SB no one will remember that he is 3-1 vs Brady in the AFCCG. Or that he is 6-11 lifetime vs Brady.

    What they will remember is Brady won at least 4 SB’s and Manning only won one.

  30. pj1983a says: Jan 25, 2016 10:28 AM

    Looking forward to the Super Bowl. A fast, high powered offense against a fast, high powered defense. Should be quite the battle.

  31. somepeopleneedtogetalife says: Jan 25, 2016 10:31 AM

    People acting like this is a secret revelation. Hit any QB repeatedly and his effectiveness goes down, not just Brady.

    Hats off to Denver, they had a great game plan and the players to execute it.

    That being said they were one play away from a tie game.

    No shame losing to Denver in Denver in late January vs # 1 defense.

    I still don’t know why Pats were giving points.

    Belichick is similar to Chip Kelly in that he thinks his scheme trumps talent for his offensive line. Think again.

  36. annes22 says: Jan 25, 2016 11:07 AM

    Everyone should know by now Tom Brady doesn’t like being hit. They did it yesterday over and over again, and even the Dolphins did it to him, and he got beat there too., It’s nothing new how to beat the Patriots. Bye have a nice vacation now, and we don’t have to listen anymore as to how GREAT Brady is etc etc. What happened yesterday, and don’t make anymore excuses, enough already?

  37. twomadmapper says: Jan 25, 2016 11:14 AM

    Hey Denver Fans, Congratulations! Peyton finally beat Tommy, actually it’s more the work of the defensive lineup…

    Bask in it for the next two weeks…

    Peyton and the Bronco’s are going to be fed their lunch by Carolina in SB 50…. Look how they dominated Arizona….

    SB50 a repeat of yesterday, going to Carolina 49-15

  38. jchipwood says: Jan 25, 2016 11:15 AM

    The bottom line is Belicheat has a harder time cheating on the road and Brady is terrible when they can’t cheat.

  39. doe22us says: Jan 25, 2016 11:20 AM

    Which QB relishes being hit lmao, anyhow what the Pats need is a dynamic and dependable run game, that Pass rush off the Broncos is ferocious.

  41. fineswisswatches says: Jan 25, 2016 11:47 AM

    I can’t believe all the bitterness by people over the Patriots. Seems every year they are in the AFC Title game. In the era of free agency and NFL parity the Patriots defy the odds. The Patriots had to work miracles with their OL all this season. Injuries yes they had more than any other team. So I suggest all the critics to read Teddy Rosevelt’s The Man in the Arena. Years from now people will marvel at what the Patriots accomplished.

  42. floratiotime says: Jan 25, 2016 11:51 AM

    How bout them there MicroSoft tablets that weren’t working for the Patriots for the first 20-25 minutes of the game…

    No cheating by Denver there, right?!?!?!?!

    Not likely. Arizona had NO pass rush. Denver has the best in the game. Cam won’t have all day in the backfield in the big game. They may win but it will be close.

    Over/Under 23pts

  50. crewchief15 says: Jan 25, 2016 12:42 PM

    Patriot Fans are now saying their OL is the reason they lost. Last week they all were talking smack about NOT needing stars on their team, because BB is the master do all…bet you wish you have a star or two on that line now, right loud mouths?… I love this…

  51. padronebradfather says: Jan 25, 2016 12:43 PM

    the Patriots were vanquished by a “noodle-armed quarterback” who failed to throw any interceptions while Brady threw two, one of which led to a touchdown for the Broncos. Justice is served one year later. Hopefully the court does the right thing and allows the NFL to suspend him for cheating.

  52. vancouversportsbro says: Jan 25, 2016 12:48 PM

    That Von Miller hit would have injured a lot of people. The Jackson hit for a pick was hard too. I don’t like the guy but he can at least take a pounding I’ll give him that.

  53. tonypsfl says: Jan 25, 2016 12:55 PM

    That was as vicious a beat down of a QB as I have ever seen. By the middle of the 3rd Qtr, they had Brady flinching. That Denver defense is a rabid pack of dogs. Brady is going to be sore for weeks. While I think that Carolina has the advantage, It won’t be nearly the cake-walk some people are predicting, and the Denver defense will be targeting Cam early and often. They’re going to inflict punishment.

  54. mellimac says: Jan 25, 2016 12:56 PM

    Kind of disappointed Belichek didn’t have the O-line straightened out…26 hits!
    C’mon man! Should have gone into a jumbo package for the whole game. Give Brady lots of time. Eventually, an Edelman etc., would have found a seam…

  55. rolf1015 says: Jan 25, 2016 12:59 PM

    Denver played better and deserved to win the game. But for those who just can’t let go of the “Patriots cheat” agenda – please stop with the hypocrisy. There are far worse violations than filming game signals from the wrong location and footballs deflating slightly in cold weather games.

    “In 2010, the Broncos self-reported that former team director of video operations Steve Scarnecchia had videotaped a portion of the San Francisco walk-through practice before a game between the two teams in London.”

    “In the past decade, the Denver Broncos have had — by far — the most players suspended for PED usage.”

  57. ecupatsfan12 says: Jan 25, 2016 1:10 PM

    Gotta tip my cap to the Broncos D- Miller and Ware are All Pros and it showed. Cannon and Vollmer got their lunch eaten all day long and the Deflator had zero time to get the ball out. That being said, TB never fails to give up and fought like a warrior as always, but the rush was in his head, of course, and he missed some easy balls.

    It also doesn’t help that that McDaniels relies so heavily on Brady and expects to go 5 wide against an elite D. He is only good at playcalling when they have elite talent, with Blount in the backfield with Lil Dirty spelling-we couldn’t be stopped. When injuries happen, he relies so heavily on Tom. We ran 2 smoke screens all day, zero rollouts except on the 2 pt try, no one step ball out, just 5 step drops and crosses to Gronk and Ju, who does NOT play well going over the middle. Coach also made a few bad calls, I would have kicked the field goal on the first one, the second one was the right call.

    All is well in Patriot place though, we still have the Deflator in Foxboro for 2 more seasons I hope. We have our whole offense and defense under contract. G Unit will be special too, plus we have the secondary on lock down thanks to the visionary aka Malcolm Butler-big time player.

    We couldn’t have beaten Carolina anyway with zero ground game and the injuries we had. Carolinas D is pretty stout too, I have Carolina by 24-10 in this game.

    I have no ties to any of the 4 teams that played yesterday but my 2 observations are: 1) As much of a beatdown as Brady took yesterday, and all the mistakes they made, they came ever so close to tying the game with a chance to win in OT. and 2) You saw how the Carolina D handled a QB with poor mobility yesterday, right?…I would kinda like to see Manning get a ring to ride off in the sunset with, but I just don’t see it. If someone thinks I’m wrong please give me your gameplan on how the Broncos beat the Panthers…

  60. coloradotennisfan says: Jan 25, 2016 1:41 PM

    Brady played well in the second half. He made a major mistake with the VM interception. The other interception was under tremendous pressure. Brady’s play late in the game was remarkable considering the pressure he was under. He drove the Patriots 3 times in the 4th quarter, enough for a victory. His two throws on the last drive were remarkable, especially the long ball to RG. He could not pull another rabbit out of his hat for the conversion. If the conversion would have been made, the Pats would likely have won the game in overtime.

    Brady proved that he is one tough QB especially remarkable that he is 38. No QB could have withstood the pass rush yesterday.

    I suggest that Denver goes with a 2 TE, 2 WR, 1 RB and dink/dunk/screen no huddle offense. The Denver o-line is worse than AZ’s o-line. Cam will be targeted, you will see a few personal fouls, Denver’s defense has done it all year, they play very, very aggressive (and a little over the line) from what I have seen. Look what they did to Andrew Luck. Remember, they have two weeks to game plan.

  63. tigerlilac says: Jan 25, 2016 1:53 PM

    The Patriots win and lose as a team. That said, I have a lot of respect for how Brady took the punishment he did and then then hit Edelman, and Gronk on three huge fourth quarter passes to extend drives and score their final td.

    Despite all of those he hits the Patriots were only an extra point away from tying the game.

    Hats off to the Broncos and their coaches.

    I have to hand it to Brady. At his age displaying such youthful energy and the ability to get up time and time again after being smacked to the ground… it’s amazing.

    That said I would not be surprised to find out someday that he has something in common with Lance Armstrong and Mark McGwire.

  70. danfromindy says: Jan 25, 2016 2:48 PM

    Can we all now stop with the GOAT talk about Brady? He is good, very good, but not GOAT. Not even close. Stop using a team stat as that means something. Matter of fact, the Pats won 4 SB probably despite Brady. Brady has had a lower QBR than opposing QBs in all but 2 of his SBs. Delhome had a better rating and Wilson did too, even with a pick that he should have never been throwing. No one is arguing that Delhome is an Elite QB.

    Comparing Brady to Manning (or really even Rodgers) is laughable. There is no stat out there that backs up that Brady is on the same level. He is good, but I would argue that there is probably 5 teams today that wouldn’t trade their QB for him in the shape his is in (and probably a lot more that wouldn’t trade for Peyton). I heard it best the other day, It isn’t Brady vs Manning but Manning vs Belicheck. That is the genius of the Pats, BB is probably the GOAT coach.

    Matter of fact, the Pats won 4 SB probably despite Brady. ______________________
    You do realize Brady won the SB MVP in 3 of those games.

    How would you compare Brady and Manning’s most recent Super Bowl performances against essentially the same Seahawks defense?

    “I can’t believe all the bitterness by people over the Patriots.”

    It’s the systematic, decade long cheating that has everyone upset.

    Yeah, all 12 of you.

    But we’d still love to hear about all this cheating. Can you tell us without video tapes or underinflated footaballs?

    No, ya can’t. And you know it. Because we own you.

    I I have to hand it to Brady. At his age displaying such youthful energy and the ability to get up time and time again after being smacked to the ground… it’s amazing.

    That said I would not be surprised to find out someday that he has something in common with Lance Armstrong and Mark McGwire.
    ========
    You’ve got the wrong AFC quarterback.

    Can we all now stop with the GOAT talk about Brady? He is good, very good, but not GOAT.
    ————-
    Not winning the Super Bowl every year does not disqualify
    You from being the greatest of all time.

    When another quarterback leads his team to 10 conference championships, 6 Super Bowls, and 4 rings, or even gets close to that, we’ll talk.

  75. mathprof84 says: Jan 25, 2016 5:36 PM

    There is no stat out there that backs up that Brady is on the same level.
    ====
    Exactly!
    Brady is absolutely greater, not even close.
    Even if Peyton gets lucky in 2 weeks and winds up with half as many rings as Tom.

    Love all the Bronco fans and Brady haters who choose to forget their HGH pumped up Payton was riding the bench for the 2nd half of the season because he was a turnover machine. The only reason the ponies got the number one seed was Oswieler! Wallow in this victory all you can for now, because in two weeks Mannings going to get embarrassed on the biggest stage in sports for the 2nd time in a row

    WOW – that’s amazing. Props to Denver for executing but the fact that the game would have gone to overtime if not for one missed PAT just shows how great Brady is

    Clearly with 10 championship games in 14 years Karma LOVES the Pat’s

    Gotta wonder what all the teams who are perennial playoff outcasts did to deserve so much worse Karma than the Pats!

    I will never understand the ridiculous notion that keeps getting thrown out there that there is a ‘blueprint for beating Brady’. Look…giving him no time to throw and hitting him 20+ times is a great blueprint for stopping ANY and EVERY quarterback. People talk like it is some new idea that other defensive coaches never considered.

    The Broncos defense had a good plan for coverages and an extraordinary performance out of their defensive line. That was a brutal beating. It was a near miracle that the Patriots even had a chance to tie it on a 2point conversion at the end.

    Don’t make this out to be more than it is though. Miller, Jackson, Wolfe and Ware had career games with their pressure and hits on Brady. That type of DLine play will take any QB out of his rhythm and make any defensive coach look like Einstein.

    Meh, Great game Denver. They deserved it.

    Patriots lost, the NFL community rejoices. Enjoy! We’re on to 2016.

    Go Patriots!

    OMG! Poor Brady took too many hits? Is that why the Pats lost the game? That’s how the Pats beat the Rams, by beating up on Kurt Warner so badly he was never the same again.
    So, enough of the post season whining about the Patriots already. They’re losers. Talk about the winners and the upcoming Super Bowl.
