Frustrating game for the Broncos. I'm not shocked that they lost, but the manner in which they lost was frustrating. Too many pivotal mistakes on the offensive side. Big ones were Thomas turning another sure touchdown into a fumble and McGahee dropping a wide open pass on fourth down and then fumbling to basically end the game. I'm definitely rooting for New Orleans tonight so Denver will only be one game back when they visit San Diego next week.
Also, what was Belichick thinking when he went for it on 4th and 5?!? Reminds me a lot of his famous 4th and 2 call from a few years ago..... is he really so scared of Manning that they can't punt it back to him, even though they were up by 3 scores with 8 minutes to go?
Also, I was shocked when the Pats were trying to phase out Welker at the beginning of the season, and today confirmed that thinking. Why in the world would they not want that guy on the field?!
