Broncos to evaluate all areas after rout, Vance Joseph says

Broncos to evaluate all areas after rout, Vance Joseph says

On a night when the Denver Broncos watched most everything go bad, there is no question that the team's special-teams unit was the first domino to fall.

A long list of special-teams' gaffes came early and often, and they resulted in 24 points for the New England Patriots in what turned into a 41-16 rout of the Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

While the Broncos' offense struggled in the red zone and the team's defense surrendered seven consecutive scoring drives to the Patriots, the special-teams troubles stood out as the team dropped to 3-6 with a sixth consecutive loss.

"Twenty-four points, we gave up 24 points on special-teams alone,'' Broncos rookie receiver Isaiah McKenzie said. "I made a huge mistake, and we ended up giving up 24 points.''

Asked after the game if he had ever seen a worse special-teams performance in his time in the NFL, Broncos coach Vance Joseph simply said, "I have not.''

Joseph said everything would be evaluated in the coming days: personnel, scheme and coaching.

The Broncos had a muffed punt, had a blocked punt, allowed a 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and had a 12-men-on-the-field penalty that negated a Patriots punt. Those four mistakes led to three Patriots touchdowns and one field goal.
