FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Nik Stauskas Jersey . - The reviews came quickly and unanimously.Bradys Better! the crowd chanted midway through the fourth quarter.I stunk, Peyton Manning said minutes after struggling through the 16th meeting between two of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.All that was true Sunday in the meeting between the AFCs two top teams.Tom Brady outplayed Manning and the New England Patriots won 43-21 for their fifth straight victory, ending the Denver Broncos winning streak at four.The lopsided loss by the favoured Broncos was a surprise. Another Brady victory over Manning in Foxborough wasnt.Manning is 0-4 at New England over the past five seasons. The Patriots have won their past 14 home games, the longest current streak in the NFL, and 34 in a row over AFC teams.The crowd didnt play, Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton said. It is 11-on-11 and their 11 played better.Make that 22.The Patriots (7-2) were better on offence, especially when converting on third and fourth downs. And they were better on defence, holding the Broncos (6-2) to their second lowest points total of the season.We knew if we executed well how the game would turn out, so we werent surprised, New England defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said. It wasnt about Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. It was about making sure we knew what were doing.Brady threw for 333 yards, four touchdowns and his first interception in five games. Manning piled up 438 yards passing, most after the Broncos trailed 27-7 at halftime, with two touchdown passes and two interceptions.The quarterback stinks, usually youre not going to win many games, Manning said. I dont make any excuses.Brady is 11-5 against Manning with one of those losses coming last season in the AFC title game.He has always set a real high bar for how to play and I have tried to do the same through my efforts with my team, Brady said about Manning. The only thing I really care about is the respect from my team, going out there and trying to earn it. Some more highlights of the Patriots victory:THE OTHER MATCHUP: Just as Brady outplayed Manning, New Englands Rob Gronkowski beat Denvers Julius Thomas in a matchup of two of the NFLs best tight ends. Gronkowski had nine catches for 105 yards and a 1-yard touchdown, while Thomas finished with two receptions for 33 yards, with an 18-yard score.Gronkowski made a spectacular one-handed grab early in the fourth quarter and was tackled at the 1.Incredible, Brady said. That was one of the best catches Ive ever seen.Thomas touchdown cut the lead to 27-14 early in the third quarter before the Patriots scored 10 points in a 17-second span on Stephen Gostkowskis 45-yard field goal and Bradys 10-yard scoring pass to Brandon LaFell.EDELMAN DOES IT ALL: Julian Edelman scored on a 5-yard pass from Brady, returned a punt 84 yards for another touchdown and almost got a third in the final minute of the third quarter. But the on-field ruling that he had scored on a 5-yard pass was overturned when replay showed the ball hit the ground before he had possession. Brady threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Shane Vereen two plays later for a 27-7 lead.Julian did what Julian does, special teams captain Matthew Slater said.It was the fourth punt return for a touchdown of Edelmans career, breaking a tie for the team record with Troy Brown and Irving Fryar.DENVERS Defence: Denvers improved defence this season hardly looked like it. Von Miller began the day tied for second in the NFL with nine sacks, but his six-game streak with at least one ended. DeMarcus Ware was the only Bronco to sack Brady, who kept getting rid of the ball quickly.Brady, man, on third and long he killed us, Denver cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. They just did a lot of hurry-up (offence) and our communication wasnt like it usually is.BRADYS MILESTONES: Brady spent the day passing one great quarterback after another. He moved into fifth place past current Denver general manager John Elway with 51,541 yards passing and moved ahead of Dan Marino with 22 games with at least four touchdown passes. He also tied Brett Favre with 62 games with 300 or more yards passing and got his 155th win in his 200th start, the most victories by a quarterback in that many starts.COMING UP: The Patriots have a bye before visiting Indianapolis in a Sunday night game. Theyre 1-2 in the games after the bye in the past three seasons. The Broncos face a soft landing after the loss to New England when they visit the Oakland Raiders (0-8) in the second of three straight road games.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Georgios Papagiannis Blazers Jersey . The Union looked to have grabbed a big win in the 88th minute when Amobi Okugo finally put the hosts in front. But a terrible giveaway by Union goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi handed Earnshaw the equalizer in the second minute of stoppage time, keeping the Union two points back of fifth-place Red Bull New York for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Custom Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys . Radulov scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Predators edged the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night to reach 100 points for the second time in three seasons and fourth in seven. https://www.blazerslockerroom.com/Nassir-Little-City-Edition-Jersey/ . While Chelsea stayed two points behind leader Arsenal courtesy of Etoos hat trick, seventh-place United slipped 14 points from the summit this weekend. And the gap from the Champions League places is growing as well, with Liverpool six points ahead in fourth.Wayne Simmonds and Steve Mason came up big with the Flyers season on the line and forced a Game Seven. Scott Cullen has notes on Simmonds, Mason, Lundqvist, Giroux, Hagelin and more. LETS GO SEVEN Wayne Simmonds scored a hat trick and Steve Mason stopped 34 of 36 New York Rangers shots as the Philadelphia Flyers won 5-2 in Game Six, forcing a Game Seven to decide the series Wednesday night. Simmonds, who scored a career-high 29 goals and 60 points during the regular season, erupted for three goals, all from within a few feet of the net. Officially, Simmonds three goals traveled a total of 20 feet, but thats not unusual -- among players with at least 20 goals, Simmonds average shooting distance of 26.0 feet during the regular season ranked 15th, so he makes his bones as a presence in front of the net. In addition, or at least underlying his three-goal performance, Simmonds generated 11 shot attempts in only 12:50 of ice time. While Simmonds was cleaning up the scraps around the Rangers net, Mason was taking care of business in the Philadelphia net, making quite a few high-quality saves to preserve the Flyers lead, even though the Rangers carried a lot of the play (and before score effects kicked in). Mason has stopped 92 of 98 shots that hes faced (.939 SV%) since joining the series in Game Three. Thats better than usual from Mason, who has a career save percentage of .907 and a .920 mark in 68 games with the Flyers, but Philadelphia needs him to continue at that level for one more game to get through this series. Flyers D Erik Gustafsson, replacing Hal Gill (who was replacing Nicklas Grossman) in the lineup, scored a goal on a breakaway coming out of thhe penalty box and had solid relative possession numbers. Zach Collins Blazers Jersey. For the Blueshirts, Henrik Lundqvist comes with the much higher pedigree, but after allowing four goals on 23 shots in Game Six (before getting pulled in favour of Cam Talbot), his save percentage in the series has dipped to .892 (132 saves on 148 shots). Lundqvist has a .920 career save percentage in both the regular season and playoffs, over a span of 647 games. That track record ranks him among the elite puckstoppers in the league, but its imperative for the Rangers that Lundqvist bounce back in Game Seven. Its not just Lundqvist that needs to be better, though. The Rangers power play is in a 0-for-20 streak since Benoit Pouliots goal in the first period of Game Two. While RW Rick Nash has yet to score a goal in the series, hes put 25 shots on goal and has the best possession numbers for the Rangers in the series. Flyers C Claude Giroux contributed a goal and two assists to the cause, his goal coming into an empty net with 4:11 remaining in the third period, giving him six points through six games. Rangers LW Carl Hagelin scored a goal, but created many chances in Game Six, registering nine shot attempts in 14:50 of ice time and rookie J.T. Miller had an assist for the second straight game since being inserted into the lineup. No team has won back-to-back games in this series, so perhaps that favours the Rangers going into Game Seven, though owning the possession battle would be more relevant.
