Play off game 3- New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos

Play off game number 3 was in the beautiful Mile High stadium in the sunshine of Denver, where the media made it the clash of Manning Vs Brady. I always thought this was going to be a game that was going to the very last play, and I was not wrong. The Broncos started the better team, getting on the scoreboard early on, and their defense kept Brady very quiet and making the Patriots punt their first 3 possessions. But although the Broncos were clearly the stronger team in the first half, the Patriots were never out of the game. The Patriots slightly improved in the 3rd quarter, to make the Broncos fans sweat as there was only a touchdown between the two teams until the very last seconds.  Brady found Gronkowski for a couple of great plays on 3rd downs, keeping the Pats chances alive. And it was the same combination that landed the Patriots a chance of taking this game into overtime as Brady threw a touchdown pass to Gronk to silence the Mile High crowd. But the Patriots could not convert their2 point conversion attempt, so the game went to a finale with an onside kick. The brilliant Broncos defense kept hold of the ball for this historic and very well deserved win which takes them onto Superbowl 50. Another great play off game for me to witness on my incredible tour.
