Patriots hand Broncos 5th straight defeat

In years past, the Denver Broncos have given Brady and the Patriots fits, especially at home, but tonight the New England offense was too much to overcome.

Denver D gets an F - Who had the Patriots setting a season-high for points scored in Denver, of all places?

Denver shut down New England on its opening drive only to have Isaiah McKenzie botch the punt return.

While Broncos passer Brock Osweiler remains a figure of suspicion in Denver, it was another Brock - special teams coach Brock Olivo - who came out of the game with questions about his future.

"I think it's important for us to recognize them", Wolfe said ahead of the game. New England knew exactly where to attack Denver's D, and even lured Von Miller and Shaq Barrett away from the line of scrimmage multiple times. Of the nine players to catch a Brady pass, seven had at least two receptions, which included tight end Martellus Bennett (three catches for 38 yards) in his return to New England after being waived by Green Bay earlier this week. While it will take some time to thoroughly dig through the team's history, it's hard to imagine a worse special teams performance than the one Denver put on the field Sunday night.

It was the first in a slew of special teams breakdowns that were costly for the Broncos.

Osweiler, making a second straight start since replacing Trevor Siemian, was 18 of 33 for 221 yards, including a touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas. "He hasn't muffed the punt".

Two plays after the muffed punt, Burkhead got a step on safety Darian Stewart on a crossing pattern and Brady hit him in stride for a 14-yard touchdown.

The Patriots played their most complete game of the season with the offense, defense, and special teams all contributing to the victory.

Then, Brandon McManus kicked the ball only three yards deep into the end zone, where Dion Lewis returned it 103 yards, around the Broncos inept coverage men, for a touchdown.
