A stellar performance from New England’s offense paired with a few crucial mistakes on Denver’s end ultimately crafted a victory that no strengthens New England’s record to 7-2, boosting their dominance in the AFC.

This now marks the second 40-plus point loss for the Broncos in a row, with a huge part of Sunday evening’s defeat going to the organization’s special teams—a tone that was set from the game’s inception as the Broncos’ Isaiah McKenzie muffed a punt immediately following the opening possession.

Next up, New England will be looking for another victory against the Raiders while the Broncos face off with the Bengals in Week 11.
