    DENVER - Tom Brady threw three TD passes and Dion Lewis scored twice as the Patriots rolled to an easy 41-16 win over the Denver Broncos Sunday night to improve to 7-2 on the season.


    The tone for Sunday's game was set in the first quarter, as the Patriots scored 14 points thanks to sloppy play from the Broncos.

    Jacob Hollister recovered a fumble on the game's first punt, which led to a Brady TD pass to Rex Burkhead to open the scoring.  After Denver responded with a field goal, Dion Lewis returned a kickoff 103 yards to give the Patriots a 14-3 lead.

    The teams traded field goals and then New England found the end zone again in the second quarter - Tom Brady connecting with Dwayne Allen for the first time this season to make it 27-9.

    Lewis scored again in the third quarter on an eight-yard run and James White capped the Patriots scoring with a six-yard touchdown reception from Brady to make it 41-16.

    In his return to the Patriots lineup, tight end Martellus Bennett caught three passes for 38 yards. He addressed his whirlwind week after the game while speaking in the locker room.

    The Patriots will practice this week in Colorado Springs before heading to Mexico City on Friday for next weekend's game against the Oakland Raiders.
