Broncos Vs. Patriots Score Update: New England Takes 17-16 Lead Over Denver

The New England Patriots are back in the lead against the Denver Broncos. Stephen Gostkowski kicked the ball through the upright for the 17-16 advantage.

The Patriots were in a position for that score as a result of a bad play by Broncos running back Lance Ball. Ball fumbled the ball on the  first play of a new drive and saw Rob Ninkovich recover the ball. The Patriots gained possession at the Broncos' 19-yard line.

Brady brought the ball to Denver's three-yard line, but on 3rd-and-3 Brady threw a bad pass to Aaron Hernandez and had to settle for the field goal.

On the next drive, Tebow fumbled the ball on a sack by Mark Anderson, giving the Patriots possession at the Broncos' 40-yard line. Will Brady strike again?
