New England Patriots defeat Denver Broncos, 30-26

Patriots coach Bill Belichick always talks about how turnovers and penalties decide games.

And he's right. Turnovers and penalties do decide games.

Most games. Not last night's game.

Despite turning the ball over twice and committing a season-high 14 penalties at Invesco Field at Mile High, the Patriots overcame the Denver Broncos, 30-26, on Tom Brady's 18-yard touchdown pass to David Givens with 30 seconds remaining in front of 72,852 mostly stunned witnesses.
