Pats' improved offense faces tough test vs. Denver
FOXBOROUGH (AP) - The New England Patriots' offense is rolling again as it heads into a game against a team whose defense it dominated twice last season.
Since then, the Denver Broncos have made significant changes in the unit that allowed an average of 43 points and 480 yards in those two meetings.
But did they improve enough to control an attack that became just the second in NFL history with a 300-yard passer, and two runners and two receivers who gained at least 100 yards in the same game, last Sunday's 52-28 win over the Buffalo Bills?
They'll try to do that Sunday when the teams with 2-2 records meet in the Patriots second home game. The Broncos have a new coordinator, Jack Del Rio, and four new starters on defense.
