Broncos fall short again in New England


A combination of fumbles and poor defense led to a 31 to 21 loss by the Broncos to the Patriots.

If you look at the fumbles by DT, Manning, and McGahee the three turn overs were part of the reason for the loss.

The fumbles by DT ( for the second week in a row on a long pass) and McGahee cost the Broncos about 10-14 points and possibly the game. McGahee also had a critical drop on fourth down. Obviously, DT had 9 catches for 188 yards and contributed on some scoring drives and McGahee had some nice runs and catches.

Another key stat was the New England rushing yardage Ridley had 151 yards, Bolden 54, and Woodhead 47.

On a key third down play in the third quarter Woodhead actually ran for 19 yards and a first down.

Manning had a good statistical day with 345 yards and 3 TDs. However, the Broncos fell short in a comeback attempt on the McGahee fumble. This years offense really fails on most of its fourth quarter comebacks unlike last years team with Tebow. Another problem that seems to be emerging is the Broncos seem to not to be able to win on the road.

The Broncos offense needs to try to keep up with teams like New England and not fall too far behind. Del Rio needs to seriously evaluate the break downs in run defense and the way Brady was picking apart the Bronco secondary again--much like last year.
