The Patriots capitalized on a trio of special teams blunders by the Broncos to take a commanding early lead. The Broncos have lost five in a row for the first time in seven seasons.By ARNIE STAPLETONAP Pro Football WriterDENVER (AP) — Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and the New England Patriots matched their own AFC record with their 12th consecutive road victory, pummeling the Denver Broncos 41-16 on Sunday night.These teams have represented the AFC in the last four Super Bowls, and the Broncos (3-6) 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. With a win, "the swag, the energy in this locker room, it'll skyrocket," suggested Aqib Talib.Instead, the Broncos fizzled.They saw their losing streak reach five games, their longest skid in seven seasons, and they lost back-to-back games to the Patriots (7-2) in Denver for the first time since 1966.Avoiding Von Miller all night and throwing for 266 yards on 25-of-34 passing, 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.
