PATRIOTS 14, BRONCOS 7 (halftime): Patriots used early Broncos mistakes, including a shanked punt by Britton Colquitt and an interception by Brock Osweiler after his arm was hit during the throw, for touchdown drives of 47 and 15 yards. Broncos narrowed the gap with a second-quarter scoring drive.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

PATRIOTS 14, BRONCOS 7 (halftime): The Patriots got off to a fast start to take a 14-0 lead, before the Broncos got back into the game late in the second quarter with a touchdown drive aided by the Patriots losing starting linebacker Donta Hightower to a knee injury for the final two plays of that march. Hightower, who is leading the defensive huddle and is a three-down player, is questionable to return with a knee injury. The Patriots get the ball to open the second half after winning the opening toss.
