Entering their week 10 matchup with the Denver Broncos, the New England Patriots were seeking to put behind their past demons of struggle in the mile high city. Coming into Sunday night, quarterback Tom Brady was jut 3-7 lifetime in Denver, and head coach Bill Belichick held a .500 record of 9-9 versus the Broncos while in New England.

The game marked the return of tight end Martellus Bennett, who signed on with the team after an ugly release from Green Bay.

During the pregame, WBZ TV cameras caught Tom Brady on a brief face time call.

Two of Tom Bradys predecessor’s caught up on the sideline as Drew Bledsoe made an appearance with his son John, and chatted with his former backup Scott Zolak.

Away from the stadium, social media briefly exploded when former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison called out former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy for being a Patriots “hater”, Dungy would change his prediction as a result.

In the first quarter, the Patriots special teams stepped up early as tight end Jacob Hollister recovered a fumble on a Broncos punt return.

The Patriots would cash in on a Brady strike to running back Rex Burkhead and a 7-0 lead.

Following a Broncos field goal to cut the lead to 7-3, special teams did it again as Dion Lewis returned the kickoff 103 yards to put the Pats up 14-3.

The Broncos responded with another drive into Patriots territory, but again only came away with three and the Patriots led 14-6 after one quarter of play but Martellus Bennett also hauled in his first catch in his return.

Early in the second quarter, the Patriots red zone struggles continued as they went up 17-6 with a Stephen Gostkowski field goal but Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler also had problems of his own with accuracy.

The theme of big special teams plays continued for the Patriots, as Rex Burkhead blocked a punt leading to another Gostkowski field goal to extend the lead to 20-6.

The Patriots defense held the Broncos to a third field goal to make the score 20-9 midway through the second, and Brady responded with a much needed touchdown to tight end Dwayne Allen, who at long last got his first reception of 2017, and it was for six. 27-9 Patriots heading into halftime.

To open the second half, the Broncos finally managed to reach the end zone to get the defecit to 27-16 following a Brock Osweiler strike to Demaryius Thomas.

…but Brady woukd find Cooks deep to immediately shift the momentum back to New England.

This catch would setup Dion Lewis’ second touchdown of the game and push the lead back up to 34-16 through three quarters.
