Broncos will be playing with the wind in the 2nd and 4th quarters.  On New England's opening drive, Wesley Woodyard forced a fumble that was returned 60-yards for a touchdown by Von Miller.  Then on the 2nd drive, Von Miller beat Nate Solder around the left side and strip sacked Tom Brady, leading to a recovery by Kevin Vickerson.  From there it took two plays and two Knowshon Moreno runs to put the Broncos ahead 14-0.

Oh but then on the ensuing possession, Duke Ihenacho puts some 'Nacho sauce on LeGarrette Blount and forced yet another fumble.  The Broncos turned this possession into a FG after grinding out a showing with their running game.

After three turnovers and 17 points, the Broncos go on to the 2nd quarter with a 17-0 lead.
