Broncos dish out more of their own misery in loss to Patriots

New England Patriots: Martellus Bennett is officially back

The Denver Broncos are the worst-coached team in the NFL

Yes, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots cashed in on virtually any and all charitable football contributions they were given by the Broncos in a 41-16 Patriots win at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, but every attempt the Broncos had to make it a game was stamped out by just one of the parties involved.

The special-teams trifecta was achieved midway through the second quarter, when Riley Dixon's punt was blocked by running back Rex Burkhead.

Brady completed 25-of-34 passes for 266 yards and led a masterful 16-play, 94-yard drive that ended in a 6-yard touchdown pass to James White early in the fourth quarter, basically quashing any Broncos hopes for a comeback.

New England was off with a bye last week and it enters Sunday's contest on a four-game winning streak.

It's hard to understand Broncos coach Vance Joseph's decision to stick with rookie kick returner Isaiah McKenzie, who has fumbled five times this season after Sunday night. Another free first down gifted New England seven more points.

Four minutes later, Patriots returner Dion Lewis ran back a kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown for a 14-3 lead, sprinting past body after body of the Broncos' coverage team that lie helpless after missed tackles.

It was the first in a slew of special teams breakdowns that were costly for the Broncos.

NOTES: Patriots WR Matthew Slater went out in the first half with a hamstring injury. The Patriots exploited a number of matchup head-scratchers, with Broncos linebackers struggling to keep up with slot receivers and tight ends.
