The Broncos D will be as good as last year and the offense will be better — even with Sanchez or Lynch at the controls no disrespect to Trevor.

Matt Bosher 's yard punt pinned the Patriots back on their own yard line. Brady led the next drive down the field, completing three passes to wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell for 40 yards and one to Bennett for 25 to bring the ball to the Falcons 7-yard line.
However, Brady was sacked twice by defensive tackle Grady Jarrett over the next three plays, and the Patriots ended up having to settle for Gostkowski's yard field goal that cut their deficit to two scores, 28—12, with less than 10 minutes left in the game. Atlanta had burned two of their three time outs on defense and equipment malfunction. On the third play of Atlanta's ensuing drive, linebacker Dont'a Hightower sacked Ryan as he was winding up for a pass, resulting in a fumble that was recovered by defensive tackle Alan Branch on the Falcons yard line.
New England soon cashed in their scoring opportunity, with Brady throwing a 6-yard touchdown pass to Amendola. Then White took a direct snap in for a two-point conversion to make the score 28—20 in favor of Atlanta with 5: On the first play of Atlanta's next possession, Freeman caught a short pass from Ryan and ran it for a yard gain, the longest play of the game for either team.
Then on 2nd-and-9 from the Patriots yard line, Ryan threw a deep pass to Jones at the right sideline, who made an acrobatic sideline catch for a yard gain, giving the Falcons a first down on the Patriots yard line with 4: Atlanta tried to pass the ball on second down, but Flowers sacked Ryan for a yard loss on the Patriots yard line. Ryan then completed a 9-yard pass to Mohamed Sanu on 3rd-and 23, but this was negated by a holding penalty on Matthews.
Now out of field goal range and faced with 3rd-and from the New England yard line, Ryan threw an incomplete pass, and the team was left with no choice but to punt the ball to New England. Bosher's yard kick gave the Patriots the ball on their own 9-yard line with 3: After two incompletions, Brady picked up a first down with a yard pass to Chris Hogan. After an yard pass to Mitchell, Brady threw a pass that was nearly intercepted by Alford. Instead, he batted the ball in the air, and it fell into the arms of Edelman, who made a diving catch and just barely managed to get his hands under the ball before it hit the ground, picking up 23 yards.
Atlanta challenged the catch, but the referees confirmed the call on the field and Atlanta lost their final time out. Brady's next pass to Amendola gained 20 yards to the Falcons yard line as the clock ran down below the two-minute warning. Two more passes to White gained 20 yards and gave New England a first down at the 1-yard line.
With 58 seconds left, White scored on a 1-yard touchdown run, and Brady completed a 2-point conversion pass to Amendola, tying the score at Atlanta started their drive deep in their own end with just under a minute and zero time outs. The Falcons failed to get in range to score a possible game-winning field goal and punted, with the Patriots fair catching the ball at their own yard line.
The Patriots considered, but ultimately declined, ending regulation on what would have been the first fair catch kick ever attempted in a Super Bowl. The play gained several yards but failed to score and sent the Super Bowl into overtime for the first time in the game's history.
The Patriots won the coin toss to start overtime, and elected to receive the ball. Starting at their yard line after a touchback, Brady completed passes to White, Amendola, and Hogan for gains of 6, 14, and 18 yards, respectively. Then after White was dropped for a 3-yard loss, Brady completed a yard pass to Edelman to the Falcons yard line. White then took a lateral throw from Brady to the yard line.
On second down, White took a pitch and ran the ball right. He was hit by Falcons defenders at the 1-yard line, but managed to stretch forward and get the ball across the goal line before his knee hit the ground, scoring a touchdown to give the Patriots the 34—28 victory. It marked the first time in NFL postseason history that a team leading by 17 points or more at the start of the fourth quarter went on to lose the game.
