The Denver Broncos are going to the Super Bowl and they have successfully defeated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots for the first time this season. But the Patriots, despite being down by 16 points in the fourth quarter, didn’t go down without a fight.
Late in the game, with momentum building, New England drove down the field and punched in a touchdown that narrowed the lead to just 10. Tom Brady added to his touchdown total on the day by not throwing for a score but scrambling for one.
The ensuing two-point conversion failed, as did the onside kick, which gave the Broncos the ball back with a 26-16 lead and little time left. Denver ran the clock out, but Brady didn’t just roll over and they stayed in the game as much as they could up to the very end.
