The New England Patriots got their first home loss of the season and it came from the 1-3 Denver Broncos- as they upset them 18-12 on Sunday. The two-week hiatus was evident in their play as the Patriots struggled on both sides of the ball. Cam Newton was activated from the reserve/COVID- 19 list but the offense looked out of sync. The Patriots scored just three points through the first three quarters.
And New England's already-thin offensive line got thinner as Jermaine Eluemunor went down in the first quarter of the game with an ankle injury. New England's defense gave up chunks of yardage but they were able to keep Drew Lock out of the end zone. Scoring 18 points from field goals alone- thanks to Brandon McManus.
Sunday’s game was the first time that Belichick's Patriots didn't allow a touchdown but still lost. The 6 time Super Bowl Champions are now 2-3 heading into Week 7.
