CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The New England Patriots are playing against the Denver Broncos in Week 15 of the 2016 NFL Regular Season. This is a rematch of the 2015 AFC Championship Game.

Game Score: New England Patriots 16, Denver Broncos 3, Final

The Patriots are looking to extend their four-game winning streak; they’re coming off an impressive win over the Baltimore Ravens, 30-23, on Monday Night Football. The Broncos on the other hand have been up and down this season and are coming off a loss against the Tennessee Titans, 13-10.

The last time these teams matched up was in the 2015 AFC Championship Game; the Broncos beat the Patriots, 20-18, and went on to win Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers. However, one key player missing from that Super Bowl winning team is future Hall of Famer QB Peyton Manning, who retired after the 2015 season. The Broncos have been struggling to find the right quarterback replacement ever since.

The Pats have been playing against the Broncos since September of 1960 in the American Football League, when the team was the Boston Patriots. It was the first game for the Patriots in the AFL; unfortunately, they lost to the Broncos, 13-10.

With a victory over the Broncos, the Patriots can clinch the AFC East Division and earn a first-round bye in the 2016 NFL Playoffs. It would also be the team’s eighth straight division title.
