Broncos Drop 5th Straight, 41-16

Pat Strathman - November 13, 2017 7:16 am

The New England Patriots stayed hot while the Denver Broncos remained ice-cold.

Quarterback Tom Brady threw three touchdowns passes and the Patriots cruised to a 41-16 victory over the Broncos. NE matched its own AFC record with its 12th consecutive road victory.

Brady’s first touchdown came at the 12:36 mark in the first quarter when he connected with tailback Rex Burkhead on a 14-yard score. Denver kicker Brandon McManus put the Broncos on the board with a 39-yard field goal, but Denver’s special teams unit struggled to contain Dion Lewis on a 103-yard kickoff return for a TD. McManus added a 33-yard field goal late in the first to make it 14-6 New England after one.

New England kicker Stephen Gostkowski joined the fun, nailing field goals of 25 and 28 yards. McManus had one more in the half, a 36-yarder with 2:36 to play, but Brady put the Patriots ahead 27-9 after an 11-yard scoring pass to Dwayne Allen.

The lone Denver touchdown came with 7:54 remaining in the third frame. Quarterback Brock Osweiler found wide out Demaryius Thomas for a seven-yard score.

Osweiler completed 18-of-33 passes for 221 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Tailback C.J. Anderson had 54 rushing yards on 10 carries.

Brady dissected the Bronco defense, going 25-of-34 for 266 yards and three scores. Lewis carried the ball 14 times for 55 yards and a TD.

Denver has been outscored 92-39 in the last two contests. The Broncos look to snap the five-game losing skid on Sunday against Cincinnati. Kickoff is at 3:25 with pregame at 1:05 on Real Country 101.7.
