Here's a look at what some of the national pundits were saying about the Patriots after the game on Sunday: Michael Irvin of NFL Network on the Patriots: "The front end and the back end were working together ... but they were pressuring also at the line of scrimmage. That's why Tom wasn't able to get rid of the ball on-time and when he wanted to." Irvin on Tom Brady and the Patriots: "[Denver] hit Tom all day long ... and you could see the frustration that started mounting with Tom and the lacking of confidence in that offensive line that was in front of him." Deion Sanders of NFL Network on the Broncos matchup with the Patriots: "What [Peyton Manning] did out there today was phenomenal. The reason I say that is because the ego in all of us wants to go toe-for-toe with Tom Brady when he's throwing the ball 56 times. ... But for Peyton Manning not to try to match him ... That's a lot of maturity, even for a 40-year-old man." DraftKings DraftKings has your shot to play for FREE in the $1 Million Fantasy Football Contest THIS SUNDAY! First place takes home $100,000!
