Remember Week 4 when the Patriots got blown out by the Chiefs and everyone was declaring how the Pats were done? Well Tom Brady sure doesn't. The Pats have now won 5 straight and the Broncos had their 4 game winning streak snapped. Once again Brady outplayed Manning and Belichick knew pulled out all the tricks to blow out the Broncos 43 to 21.
Tom Brady threw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns with one interception. Gronkowski and Edelman fueled the aerial attack and Edelman even returned a punt for an 84-yard touchdown.
Peyton Manning was off today which seems impossible, but he was still able to rack up 400+ yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. The Pats showed that an interchangeable defense that can give multiple looks and play different styles can give Manning trouble and look for many AFC West teams to make acquisitions and changes to their defensive schemes accordingly in the offseason.
Will these two teams face off again in the playoffs? The Pats are now looking like the team to beat with a healthy Gronkowski. Who will stop them?
