Matt Prater, the Broncos kicker, made a 54-yard field goal with 7 minutes left in the game for a 26-10 lead. Brady hit Julian Edelman for a seven-yard touchdown to make it 23-10.

Prater made a 19-yard field goal to make it 23-3. Demaryius Thomas caught a three-yard touchdown reception from Peyton Manning to make it 20-3 in the third quarter.

With 25 seconds left in the first half, Prater made a 35-yard field goal for the 13-3 lead. Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski made a 47-yard field goal with 2:54 left before the end of the second quarter, as the score stood at 10-3.
