Patriots score first after getting second chance

AP

Things started so promising for the Broncos.

After getting strafed for 51 points last week, holding the Patriots to a three-and-out was a welcome start.

But when wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie muffed the ensuing punt, it became too easy.

Tom Brady hit Rex Burkhead with a 14-yard touchdown pass, and the Patriots have a quick 7-0 lead before Brock Osweiler and the Broncos offense had a chance to take the field.

The Broncos defense is good, but that only works when they get a little bit of help from their offense and special teams.

  1. Grandpa Brady’s arm is fresh from 2 weeks rest so the Patriots will air it out tonight. The Broncos are in trouble.

  3. Pats nation will call this a quality win, looking back into history. I didn’t even turn this one on given that the Broncos are on a 3 game losing streak and their defense is a shadow of its former self. And no QB. The AFC sucks this year, no offense to the JAX of the world but winning this is like winning the AFC East – so what. Get them against the 1-2 quality teams in the league and we will see what Father Time has to say.

    You have to give Bennett credit for playing with a serious shoulder injury.Unless the Pats forced him to play.

    The Patriots dont have to force anything. Because of the antagonism between him and Green Bay he will see being a better player for NE is a way to stick it to Green Bay. It sets him up better to blame Green Bay for how things werent working out. NE isnt going to care what his motives are they will take the good play. Chances are good Belichick considered that factor when they grabbed him.

    So far (currently its halftime as I comment this) Ill admit irs looking like you are correct. But given the history of playing Denver in Denver I was taking nothing for granted. Even though they are up big I have too much respect for the history to consider it money in the bank. Ill watch.

    Also part of it is I cant figure out how Denver can be this bad considering how great some of their players are. Especially their defense. But I suppose its because the ones that arent great are pretty much the opposite and thats what opponents target.

    You mean like you undoubtedly said last year?

    How’s that working out for you? Because for Pats Nation, it was a pretty sweet 5th Lombardi.

    They play who they play and once they make the playoffs, it’s always last man standing. More often than not for the last 18 years, it’s the been the Patriots.

    As for winning the AFC East, if you actually followed football, you’d realize the win/loss ratio of the AFC East vs. every other division is in the top 2 over the last 15 years. And that’s even if you leave out the top team of each division each year.

    Sucks when facts get in the way of your fantasies, hey?
