GAME REVIEW: Denver Broncos use 6 McManus field goals to beat Patriots 18-12

The Denver Broncos visited the New England Patriots on Sunday as Drew Lock and Cam Newton both made their returns.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — After two postponements, the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots finally squared off today at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts.

Brett Rypien had been expected to start at quarterback for the Broncos last week, but the unexpected bye week gave Drew Lock a chance to return to his starting role. After battling a case of COVID-19, Patriots quarterback Cam Newton also returned on Sunday.

Drew Lock played an aggressive game on Sunday, eventually throwing two late-game interceptions. Denver was able to survive, however, using six field goals from Brandon McManus to defeat the New England Patriots 18-12.

The Broncos improved to 2-3 on the season. The Kansas City Chiefs come to Empower Field at Mile High next Sunday, Oct. 25 at 2:25 p.m.
