In a strange but true statistical information, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has more touchdown passes at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium than Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning this season. Manning — who missed several games due to injury — has just one regular season touchdown, while Brady had three there.
On Sunday Night Football, the Patriots lost 30-23 in overtime on November 29th. It was the 50th meeting overall between the teams as the Broncos hold a 29-21 lead.
Brady had three touchdowns in the loss — which ended the Patriots perfect season as C.J. Anderson scored the game-winning rushing touchdown.
In the fourth quarter, Brady hit Brandon Boldin for a 63-yard touchdown reception, as the Patriots went up 21-7.
Scott Chandler put the Patriots up 14-0 when he caught a nine-yard touchdown reception from Brady in the second quarter. The Patriots legendary quarterback also hit star tight end Rob Gronkowski for a 23-yard touchdown reception for the 7-0 lead in the first quarter.
Manning’s lone home touchdown pass came on October 4th against the Minnesota Vikings. His eight-yard touchdown pass went to Owen Daniels.
The Broncos signal caller only started five home games this season. Also, he hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass since November 8th at the Lucas Oil Stadium — which he’s credited with building– against the Indianapolis Colts, which he had two touchdowns and two interceptions in the game.
