Patriots vs. Broncos – Post Game Thoughts

The Patriots beat the Broncos 41-23. Here are some post-game thoughts:

  1. The Broncos started the game extremely strong, scoring on their first 3 possessions. This is in contrast to the slow starts of previous games.
  2. Tim Tebow had good throws most of the game. There were a handful of throws (mainly to his right) that were off-target.
  3. Tebow proved how dangerous he can be outside the pocket, especially when rolling to his left.
  4. Tebow does not like to roll to his right.
  5. The Broncos receivers were catching the ball.
  6. The Patriots got gashed by the rushing attack, especially early on while the game was close.
  7. The Broncos’ pass rush was kept in check by the Patriots’ offensive line.
  8. Tom Brady torched the Broncos’ secondary when the Broncos blitzed.
  9. Three Broncos turnovers contributed to three Patriots scores.
  10. Penalties kept Brady’s drives alive and killed Broncos’ drives.
  11. The Broncos’ defense could not get Brady off the field in the second half.
  12. Aaron Hernandez had his way with the Broncos’ defense.
  13. The Patriots got great pressure on Tebow with four and five-man rushes.
  14. The Broncos had zero takeaways.
