New England Patriots

The Patriots lose their first game of the year, 30-24 to Denver, and also lose Rob Gronkowski . . . though perhaps not for as long as first feared.
Rob Gronkowski is carted off the field in the fourth quarter, but initial reports are the knee injury may not be as bad as it looked.
Watch Michael Felger, Troy Brown and Mike Flynn talk about the resiliency shown by the Patriots on Sunday night, even in defeat.
