The Denver Broncos have very harsh memories of their game earlier this season against the New England Patriots in which they took a nice lead into halftime and ended up losing the game in overtime. The loss at the time almost threw their plans to secure the No. 1 seed in the AFC off track, but they eventually locked up home field advantage and have very pearly learned their lesson.
After taking a 13-3 lead into halftime, the Broncos proceeded the score out of the gate and take a 20-3 lead.
The touchdown to Demaryius Thomas was the Broncos fourth consecutive scoring drive of the game, as they hadn’t missed out on points on s a drive since they kicked their first field goal of the game.
Denver still has a ton of game left to defend against the Patriots, but a 20-3 lead is a nice cushion to work with against Tom Brady.
