The Patriots didn’t need much help.
But the Broncos are willing to provide.
On a night of special teams miscues by the Broncos, the Patriots are up 27-9 at halftime.
The Broncos have muffed a punt, allowed a 103-yard kickoff return, and had a punt blocked, which almost seems unfair against the Patriots.
The Broncos have major problems at the moment, and aren’t built to come back from this kind of deficit with Brock Osweiler at the helm (or really, any of their quarterbacks).
