The Patriots looked like a team that had barely practiced in the two weeks, working on a minor COVID-19 outbreak and lagtag attack line in the first half.
Still, they’re still playing against Denver Broncos, dragging only 12-3 on the break.
New England gave Denver kicker Brandon McManus four field goals, including a 52-yard strike with 0:19 remaining in the second quarter.
With the Patriots quarterback back in Cam Newton, the team struggled to bring together all sorts of drives. Newton was 11-9 at 100 yards, but he also threw a passcut, but neither N’Keal Harry nor Julian Edelman caught the pass in the first half.
