Best of Social Media: Week 15 Patriots vs BroncosRon Chenoy - USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots entered Week 15 of the NFL season in a tight race for the AFC’s number one seed in the playoffs, with a win they would also clinch the East division title for the eighth consecutive season.

The team knew a tough challenge lied ahead against the Denver Broncos top ranked defense and a building that has historically been a “house of horrors” for the Patriots to the tone of two AFC Championship losses in the last three years.

The first quarter began with some early fireworks by the Patriots special teams unit, a bit of a reversal from the struggles against the Ravens as rookie Jonanthan Jones recovered a Jordan Norwood fumbled punt.

Quarterback Tom Brady struggled early on, starting 0 for 6 and unable to complete his first pass until the second quarter.

The Patriots would cash in on the turnover, 3-0 after a Stephen Gostkowski field goal midway through the first quarter.

Following return struggles against Baltimore last week, Julian Edelman saw brief action on special teams.

Pink Stripes.

The Patriots offense continued to struggle to find its groove, but the defense kept the Broncos in check. Allowing a lone field goal to keep the game tied at 3 following one quarter of play.

Following the turnover, Brady at last made the Broncos pay.

The short field setup the Patriots first touchdown of the game, and it was a record breaker for running back LeGarrette Blount.

The Patriots would enter halftime with a 10-3 lead.

Heading into the third quarter, Julian Edelman said some NSFW things that were captured by the CBS microphones.

The scoring remained minimal the remainder of the game as Stephen Gostkowski tacked on two more field goals in the third and fourth quarters to bring the Patriots lead to 16-3.

Devin McCourty and the defense stifled Trevor Siemian’s offense until the final whistle.

The Patriots would leave Denver as 16-3 victors over the Broncos to go along with the AFC East championship.
