    DENVER 49


    Denver's head coach and his stud linebacker Von Miller have something in common: they both hate Tom Brady.

    Miller took that hatred to a whole different level in Week 5 - racking up 5 sacks against the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

    Getting out to a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter, Denver forced Tom Brady and the New England offense into pass-now mode and the Broncos' defensive staff told their pass rushers to get after it...and that's just what they did.

    Up-and-comer Thaddeus Gibson, who recorded his second sack of the year in the first half, was forced to leave the game with a dislocated ankle. He is expected to miss multiple games. This leaves a big void on the left side. Rookie DE Derek Wolfe, who is more of a run stopper, will have to step up.

    Peyton Manning was surgical when he needed to be tonight hitting backs, tight ends, and receivers all over the field. J-Co and Bey-Bey Thomas made big plays for their veteran quarterback, taking short passes a long ways for scores.

    After breaking off a big TD run early, Willis McGahee was slowed by a minor injury. Instead of risking their workhorse to further injury, Denver turned to youngster Jonathan Dwyer, who rushed for over 100 yards and 2 TDs in relief. It appears that he's the heir apparent in Denver's backfield.

    Tom Brady continued to impress through the air, as usual. Speedster wideout Johnny Knox had a huge game, but it wasn't enough. The New England defense couldn't buy a stop for most of the game, and Brady's offense was always trying to claw its way out of a hole.
