Raiders of The Lost Defense
Despite a valiant comeback effort by Tom Brady and the offense, it was an over-matched secondary that was the biggest reason for the Pats 28-20 loss in Denver.
Broncos QB Jake Plummer shredded the Pats pass defense early and often, and Denver ran off enough big running plays to put this one just far enough out of reach to land the World Champs in a 3-3 position facing the bye week.
The news of Tedy Bruschi's likely return in the Buffalo game two weeks hence is the best news possible for this beleaguered defense, bereft of leaders and lacking players who can just simply carry out their assignments.
