Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and the New England Patriots matched their own AFC record with their 12th consecutive road win, pummeling the Denver Broncos 41-16 Sunday night.

Brady improved to 8-9 against the Broncos, the only team he has a losing record against, and won for just the fourth time in 11 trips to Denver.

His 86th regular season road win broke a tie with Peyton Manning for most all-time.

These teams have represented the AFC in the last four Super Bowls, and the Broncos were hoping a visit from their rivals would help shake them from their funk, one that included a 28-point loss at Philadelphia a week earlier.

Instead, the Broncos saw their losing streak reach five games, their longest skid in seven seasons, and they lost back-to-back games to the Patriots in Denver for the first time since 1966.
