Pats / Donkeys: 1st Half = Total stress...

Half-time post.

1st half result: 10-3 Donkeys.

Stress. Total stress.

The fact that the Pats are down by a TD is lucky, but also a shame, because the defense put up an incredible performance during the 1st half, holding Denver out of the end-zone with a goal-line stand from within the Pats 5 yard-line, as well as just being able to keep Denver points off the board the entire half with The Broncos starting on the Pats side of the field for literally the entire game.

The Pats have had awful field position every time they have gotten the ball. Yet, they still managed to get the 1st score of the game with a field goal. After that, things fell apart. A Kevin Faulk fumble led to a Denver TD and then an Ellis Hobbs fumble on the ensuing kickoff led to a field goal. Result: 10-3 Denver.

Like I said, it could be worse right now. There were several missed scoring opportunities by both teams in the 1st half and being down by a TD is not totally unmanageable for The Pats. They just need to pull things together and protect the damn ball.

Unfortunately, The Broncos get the ball right back to start the 2nd half. I hope The Patriots can turn things around in the 2nd because it would be a shame if the Pats lost the game because of those turnovers.

30 min left... Don't let it end here Patriots. You withstood the 1st half onslaught. Time for some 2nd half heroics.
