And if there was a shootout scheduled for high noon, Brock Olivo would still be looking for his six-gun at 12:01 as his opponent draws.
Derek Wolfe honored his brother-in-law who is in the Navy ahead of Broncos vs. Patriots game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday night. 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. Brady immediately looked rejuvenated and then pushed his team to a quick touchdown and the 7-0 lead.
"He's a young coach, a bright coach and he's going to be a great coach in my opinion", Joseph said, via the team's website. Something has to happen with this team for Joseph to prove he's got the wherewithal to know how to grab the Broncos by the reins.
Denver's troubles began when returner Isaiah McKenzie muffed a first-quarter punt that led to the Patriots' first touchdown. It's not from a lack of effort, I can say that. Oh, and Olivo's unit had 12 men on the field on a 4th-and-5 when New England elected to boot the ball away to the Broncos.
The second quarter featured three field goals, with Stephen Gostkowski capping two New England drives with three-pointers and McManus making his third of the night.
"He's our punt returner and that's his job" Joseph spoke. "He hasn't muffed the punt".
The Patriots played their most complete game of the season with the offense, defense, and special teams all contributing to the victory. The offensive line deserves credit for keeping Von Miller at bay but the rest was all Brady. New England won for the sixth time in that span.
And, even when they were up 25 points with 6:44 to go, after Brock Osweiler's interception, the Patriots kept attacking with deep passes.
Special teams: F. Perhaps a "Z" would be a better fit.
