Denver has never been an easy place for the Patriots to play, but this time dazzling special teams play, a clicking offense, and a defense that only blundered a few times stomped the Broncos, whose three special teams errors didn't help them at all. There was some sputtering in the red zone by the O, but they worked that out and Tom threw for 3 TDs while the Broncos' O was pretty pathetic.
So as a Pats fan it was great fun to watch our team clobber Denver and show marked improvement. They appear to be in mid-season form.
The Bills, Jets and Dolphins all lost and the Pats won. :)
AFC EAST DIVISION
Next week, at Mexico City against the Raiders! The Pats are staying out in Colorado and practicing at the Air Force Academy to acclimate to the high altitude.
