BRONCOS 30, PATRIOTS 24 (final, OT): The Patriots not only lost the game, but also potentially lost one of their best players in TE Rob Gronkowski, who was carted off with 2:49 remaining with a knee injury. If Gronkowski is lost for the season, this might ultimately be viewed as the night that the complexion of the Patriots Super Bowl hopes, and the AFC on the whole, was dramatically altered. In all, a devastating night for New England.

Broncos 30, Patriots 24, in overtime. Patriots drop to 10-1 but bigger storyline is potential loss of TE Rob Gronkowski to knee injury.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The Panthers (11-0) now are the only undefeated team in the NFL after New England's loss to Denver.

Brady engineers game-tying drive

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was carted off the field after remaining down on the field following an incomplete pass with 2:49 remaining in the game. Quarterback Tom Brady and Bill Belichick came over to check on Gronkowski, who was immediately writhing in pain as he landed. Gronkowski is obviously a vital part of the Patriots offense and his potential absence would dramatically alter the complexion of the rest of the season.

Gronkowski leaves with knee injury

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski left the field on a cart after suffering a right leg injury when attempting a catch against Denver. Before he left, Gronkowski had six catches for 88 yards and TD.

The Jets set a franchise record by holding the Dolphins to 12 rushing yards -- yes, 12. The Jets made a change at outside linebacker. Demario Davis, an every-down player for the first 10 games, was used in a rotation with Erin Henderson. They alternated series. "You have to earn playing time around here," Todd Bowles said, "and Erin has done that."

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

A muffed punt by undrafted rookie WR Chris Harper, which the Broncos recovered early in the fourth quarter, was turned into a touchdown as Denver has sliced the Patriots lead to 21-14. The Patriots would normally have Julian Edelman or Danny Amendola back to field the punt in that situation, but both are out with injuries. Harpers muff could ultimately be a turning point in the game, as the Patriots had looked ready to take control at that point.

Brady ties Marino with long TD pass

With Tom Brady's 63-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Bolden in the 4th quarter against Denver, it marked his 420th career TD pass, which ties Dan Marino for 3rd all-time.


Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

RB Brandon Bolden's 63-yard catch-and-run TD early in the fourth quarter to give the Patriots a 21-7 lead over the Broncos was a good example of the Patriots going deep into their options. Up to that point in the game, Bolden had played just nine snaps, as LeGarrette Blount (20) and James White (19) were used more at RB. Brady had connected with Bolden on an 18-yard TD against Washington on Nov. 8, also down the right side. That play had come after Dion Lewis left the game with a torn ACL.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

The Patriots lead the Broncos 14-7 after three quarters, with the teams playing a scoreless 15 minutes after halftime. Its been a field-position game, with both punters playing important roles. For the Patriots, its been a struggle on offense as they cant seem to find something that consistently works for them, in part because the running game hasnt been something they can turn to regularly. Its anyones game over the final 15 minutes (and perhaps longer).

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer on the officials Sunday: "You can't say anything if they screw it up. Just like we miss plays, the refs miss plays. It happens. It's part of the deal. You have to fight through that."
