Following Denver’s touchdown, the Patriots moved across midfield and inside the Broncos’ 30-yard line with the help of two more completions to Welker and three carries by Stevan Ridley.
From the 27, Tom Brady hit tight end Rob Gronkowski for 13-yards, and then Brady found wideout Brandon Lloyd inside the 1-yard line.
Running back Shane Vereen took it into the end zone from there. The touchdown and extra point make the score 14-7 in favor of New England.
The touchdown drive took 15 plays and 6:08 off the clock.
