Broncos have long viewed Patriots as their best barometer

The Broncos (3-5) have lost four in a row and five of their past six. The Broncos will reportedly be trotting out Brock Osweiler at quarterback this week to halt their free fall.

The New England Patriots (6-2) offense was trending in the wrong direction in the month leading up to last week's bye.

"I think they've had good teams", Brady said of his struggles against the Broncos, the only team he has a losing record against (including postseason) in his career.

Playing his entire career for Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, Light knows how Belichick motivates his players. "Sorry we can't connect on that", Belichick said, via ESPN's Adam Schefter. "It's a really talented team". Both games will be played on the road.

Whether that's all just BBs off a battleship remains to be seen, but the Broncos are certainly searching for answers this week after the meltdown in Philadelphia, just two weeks after the franchise's first shutout loss in a quarter century. Utilizing one of his classic techniques, the seven-time Super Bowl champion deflected the topic to this week's game. It's two totally different teams.

"The talent, what we have on the roster and the type of players we have on the roster, we have bigtime players", said Broncos running back C.J. That's bad news for the home team Denver Broncos.

Denver will feel like sea level in comparison to the game at Azteca Stadium the following week.

After Sunday's game at 5,280 feet, the Patriots play the Raiders on November 19 in Mexico City, which is nearly 7,400 feet above sea level.

Since "Look What You Made Me Do", fans are eager to uncover hidden messages in Swift's new songs. Swift's lawyers weren't impressed with any such discussions.

When Osweiler was the starting QB of the Texans past year in the playoffs, he was very bad against the Pats as he completed only 23-of-40 passes for 197 yards and threw three interceptions in Houston's 34-16 divisional round loss in Foxboro.

When the Patriots depart for Denver on Friday, they won't be back in Foxboro until Monday, Nov. 20. By comparison, the Post noted, the Air Force Academy is at 7,258 feet.

But when the Broncos prepare to face New England, those numbers are rarely considered - if ever.

The Patriots coach was asked whether it's his goal to retire with Tom Brady as the starter. You know what I'm saying? "Some other guys they can't make it that many years".

Like Brady, special teams captain Matthew Slater has played in a pair of worldwide games with the Patriots at Wembley Stadium in London (2009 vs. Tampa Bay, 2012 vs. St. Louis) and knows that if the team manages to do the right things, the lengthy trip can be good as far as team building experiences go.

"Every game is important", Anderson said.

The power of the Pats in Denver is real, and the Broncos don't need to look too far back for reminders. We felt that way this year. "We're going to have to play good. We're all looking forward to that hopefully bond-forging experience". The Broncos are reeling after a hard three-game stretch on the road. Should the Patriots play their cards right, they won't have to time travel again until Super Bowl LII, which is in Minneapolis. The Patriots are a game ahead of Buffalo at the top of the AFC East Division.
