MOST ANTICLIMACTIC START
Surprising to no one, the Patriots looked to their go-to guys to get the offense going. But Denver, unlike other opponents in recent weeks, didn't suffer much in stopping them. Julian Edelman only got 5 yards on Brady's first throw of the game. LeGarrette Blount got stuffed on his first effort. Austin Collie couldn't get separation on his route and that pass fell incomplete. New England went three-and-out.
