FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) At least New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick doesn't have to answer - or, more precisely, not answer - questions about an undefeated season anymore.

The Patriots' quest for a second perfect regular season came to an end Sunday night with a 30-24 overtime loss to the Denver Broncos. What's worse, tight end Rob Gronkowski was injured late in the game, putting a scare into a team that had already lost many of Tom Brady's offensive weapons.

"He is the best tight end in football," Brady said. "It is so hard to see these guys get hurt this way. ... It is hard to see your friends get taken down like that. It is part of this sport and we understand that, but I also have a lot of respect for guys that take the field."
