It was a lopsided affair at Mile High Sunday night as the Broncos were dismantled by the New England Patriots 41-16. At the end of the first quarter, the Patriots lead the Broncos 14-6.
Thanks to some incredible special teams play by New England, Brady was consistently starting drives in great field position.
Denver responded with a scoring drive of its own, as Brandon McManus connected from 39 yards out to make the score 7-3.
Minutes later, Patriots running back Dion Lewis returned a kickoff 103 yards for a score.
The Broncos' offense stepped up on the next series and it ended with a field goal.
Brady's first touchdown pass of the night was set up by Jacob Hollister's recovery of a muffed punt and it was caught by Rex Burkhead, who also blocked a punt to set up one of Stephen Gostkowski's two field goals.
Brady finished Week 10 with 11.76 Passing Net Expected Points, per numberFire live. Of the nine players to catch a Brady pass, seven had at least two receptions, which included tight end Martellus Bennett (three catches for 38 yards) in his return to New England after being waived by Green Bay earlier this week. Backup Brock Osweiler started that game and threw two interceptions, while Denver's defense surrendered 419 yards of total offense.
The streak ties a club record and is second only in National Football League history to the San Francisco 49ers' record 18-game road winning streak from 1988 to 1990.
