Patriots vs. Denver Broncos

What a very disappointing loss. The entire game was one either mistake by the Patriots, bad call by the referee or even worse a force by the Broncos.

Just like last week, the first quarter brought nothing to the scoreboard except 0-0.

In the second quarter, the patriots scored first with a field goal. The Bronos scored a touchdown after a fumble by the Patriots and a BAD pass interference call on Asante Samuel. On the kickoff return the Patriots lost the ball again when the Bronos Kicker Sauerbrun nailed Ellis Hobbs causing another fumble. Two fumbles in 18 seconds. (Not the usual Patriots) Broncos got a field goal making the score 10-3 going into the half.

The third quarter was very upsetting due to the crazy turn of events. With the patriots in the red zone on the 5 yard line, Brady threw a pass in the end zone to Troy Brown for the TD when Champ Bailey picked off Tom Brady’s throw and ran it down the sideline for a 100 yard ALMOST scoring interception. Bailey thought he was home free when Ben Watson came from nowhere to knock him out of bounds at the 1 yard line. To make things almost better, Patriots challenged the play saying that the ball was knocked into the end zone and out of bounds which would give the patriots the ball back at their own 20 yard line. AGAIN, bad call by the referee and the Broncos ran it in for a TD.

In the forth quarter, things seemed to be going well until the Bronos had to punt with Troy Brown back for the return. Troy was a little off and fumbled the punt and the Broncos recovered the ball again. They scored on that play making it 24-6 with 8:30 left in the game. Brady threw to David Givens for a TD making the score 24-13. Brady got one more chance to make a historic comeback when he was intercepted by Lynch and that secured the win for the Broncos.

This year was very rough on the Pats with all of the injuries and losing both offensive and defensive coordinators, I think that they did an amzing job with what they had. To the Patriots who had an amazing run in the post season of 10-0 are not going to make NFL history winning three superbowls in a row. No team has ever done that and the Patriots were three wins away from it. To the Patriots Dynasty winning 3 out of 4 superbowls, wait until next year.
