Pats Season Over, Broncos Win AFC Title [VIDEO]
New England quarterback Tom Brady has a losing record on the road against just one team. That's the Denver Broncos and their success continued with a 20-18 AFC Title win.The Bronco defense had the Patriots confused and out of sync all game as they failed to put together sustained drives thanks to constant pressure on Brady.
New England had a chance to tie the game when Brady hit Rob Gronkowski in the back of the end zone with just :12 to play. However, they needed a 2-point conversion after Steven Gostkowski missed an extra point early in the game. Brady's pass over the middle was intercepted and that iced the game for the Broncos.
Brady was sacked 4 times but was hurried 18 times and took 23 hits. He also threw 2 interceptions while his counterpart Peyton Manning did not throw any picks.
Denver did on defense what most teams have been unable to do and that is limit the damage that Julian Edelman can have on a defense. The Pats wide receiver had 7 catches but only 53 yards and no touchdowns.
New England ends the season with a record of 12-5.
