  • This game wasn't as close as the score

    I've watched the game now twice. This game was not nearly as close as the 10 point gap.

    First Downs: Denver-27 Pats-19
    Total Plays: Denver-71 Pats-56
    Total Yards: Denver-507 Pats-320
    TOP: Denver-35:44 Pats-24:16


    Not sure where I saw this but we had only 8 possessions all game and scored 26 points (and still left points on the field). That was the highest points per possession game we've had all year.

    507 yards of offense, over 100 yards rushing, no turnovers and 7.1 yards per play. That's how you win playoff games people. Seattle's in trouble.

    Same with last week... which makes you wonder, if we're settling for FGs instead of TDs in two weeks, will that be good enough?

    I'll guarantee you PM is not happy with the offensive scoring output the past two weeks.

      Seattle's defense poses some challenges to Denver's Offense that NE is unable to pose. Having said that, if anyone is able to overcome those challenges, is PFM.

        Seattle has a better D by far, but no one like Brady to bring them back. We will punt more than this game but we win.

        GO BRONCOS!!! I am sooooo psyched!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          I guarantee you he is, because they are in the Super Bowl.

            I trust Peyton Manning with two full weeks to study against an opponent

              One FG was a ref screw up.
              JT's drop led to another FG.

              That's an easy 8 pts missing from the scoreboard.

                By the time the Pats cut the lead to 10 points, they were in 4-down / 2 point conversion / onside kick mode.

                  There were also the two redzone holding penalties (one which was really marginal) and Julius getting sexually assaulted in the endzone with no flag in the 1st quarter. Those two drives end in touchdowns instead of FGs and the score would have reflected the true domination of the game.

                    Probably two FGs that should have been TDs - and we still won.

                      I doubt it. Manning is a perfectionist and we have left quite a few points on the field the last two games.

                        3.25 pts/possession for the Broncos vs 2.09 points/possession for the Seahawks. I'll take that.

                          The Broncos need to play a disciplined game in two weeks.... the 49ers allowed the Seahawks to make big plays when they were undisciplined in their coverage. But they also proved that Seattle could have a hard time protecting Russell Wilson

                            I actually agree but in the Belichick era the Patriots very rarely get blown out and tend to hang around even when being outplayed.

                              Yeah, I know. I didn't type that with much conviction. I bet he is already sitting down to a nice Bud Light and some game film. A nice night cap!
