Unbeaten Steelers thrash Browns as Patriots slip under .500 squib
Bakey Mayfield leaves game as Cleveland lose to rivals
Pats fall under .500 after five games for first time since 2002
Denver kicker Brandon McManus had six field goals and linebacker Malik Reed came up with a big sack late to help the Broncos hold on for an 18-12 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday in a game twice delayed following positive coronavirus tests for both teams.
Sunday’s game was originally scheduled for last week but got postponed twice, first by a day, then by seven. The delay was caused after multiple Patriots players tested positive for Covid-19, including quarterback Cam Newton and reigning Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore. New England (2-3) rallied from an 18-3 deficit and nearly pulled off the comeback, but had three turnovers.
