*Denotes Playoffs

Overall, Tom Brady has played pretty well against Denver. He has eight 0 or 1 interception games to go along with five 300+ yard performances, and five 2+TD performances. The bad? He's also six games where he has failed to complete 60% of his passes. Overall, his teams have averaged 24.0 points per game. He is 2-2 at Home and 2-4 in Denver.

Trending: Up

After starting his career 1-6 against the Broncos, Brady has won three straight. In those three games the Patriots have averaged 39 points per game and Tom has thrown 9 TD's against 1 INT.

The Last Game

31-21 victory at home. This marked the 13th occasion Manning and Brady squared off. Behind a ridiculously fast Patriot offensive hurry-up attack, New England managed to run up a 31-7 lead. The Broncos mustered a late comeback attempt but were stalled by two costly mistakes: a Willis McGahee dropped pass on 4th down, and a Willis McGahee fumble late when the Broncos were at the Pats goal line.

Best game

A 45-10 domination of the Tim Tebow led Broncos in the 2011 AFC Divisional Playoffs. Brady tied the All-Time postseason record for most passing touchdowns in a single game with 6. This punt led to a skirmish at the end:


Worst Game

2006 Divisional Playoff Game. Marching down and inside the Bronco 10 yard line, trailing by 4 (10-6) Brady was blitzed on 3rd down, and fired a poor pass to the endzone that was picked off by Champ Bailey and returned 99 yards to the Patriot 1-yard line. TE Ben Watson chased down the play and popped the ball out. After a replay challenge, it was determined that the ball went out at the 1 yard line. The Broncos would punch the ball in and take a 17-6 lead that they never relinquished. Broncos win 27-13. This game marked the first postseason loss for Tom Brady and the end of a dynasty. Brady and co. had rattled off 10 straight postseason victories before losing this one.


Fun Fact

John Elway was 11-0 in his career vs. the Patriots.

Yeah those numbers look a bit ugly, but you have to remember this is from an era when players were allowed to hit each other. There was no such thing as roughing the passer, unnecessary roughness (unless you were giving someone "the business"), personal fouls for hits to the head, or illegal contact.

My very scientific method of projecting stats from older eras into the current era tells me that today these numbers would equate to: 260-332 (73.8%), for 3500 yards, 32 TD's and 3 INT's.

As an executive, Elway is officially 1-1. (We won't count the Tebow losses for obvious reasons). His one victory was signing away Wes Welker this past offseason.

GO BRONCOS!!!
