Denver had racked up a 24-0 halftime lead and it looked like New England was virtually out of it – on the ropes for sure.
But, you can’t count out Tom Brady as most football fans have learned.
Two Patriots’ drives to open the third quarter have led to 14 unanswered points from Brady and company.
Their second 6 play, 32-yard drive was captured in GIF form, including a Brady pass and subsequent bull-like run by Rob Gronkowski and the Brandon Bolden 1-yard punch in to bring the Patriots to within 24-14.
Check out the GIF below:
Peyton Manning has gone 11-of-17 for 73 yards and a touchdown. Linebacker Von Miller returned a New England fumble 60 yards for a touchdown and later forced a Tom Brady fumble that led to a 2-yard Knowshon Moreno touchdown run.
New England has since engineered another touchdown drive, making it 21 unanswered points – all in the third quarter – and all of a sudden we have a one score game on Sunday Night Football.
Brady has gone 22-of-31 for 244 yards and two touchdowns, including a 6-yard pass to Gronkowski to close out the Patriots final drive that brought them within 3 points.
Broncos running back Moreno leads all rushers with 25 carries for 139 yards and a TD.
