After being defeated by the New England Patriots on Sunday, the Denver Broncos are not pointing fingers or dwelling in the past; the team is ready to move on.

“I don’t want to blame it on any particular area or people. I think all in all we hung with them physically, but mentally I thought there were certain areas as far as dropping the ball on the ground and the turnovers were really the big difference,” Coach John Fox said after the game.

“This was a setback no doubt about that, but sometimes setbacks are setups for bigger things to come. That’s the way we’ll approach it.”

According to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, the locker room was very quiet after the game, but there was still positivity in the air.

“Everybody is very positive; just encouraging each other. We’ll go at it here in a few days and get ready for Buffalo,” said quarterback Tim Tebow.  “[We have to] improve a little bit each and every day.”

The team will now get back to work and start preparing for their Week 16 game against the Buffalo Bills on Christmas Eve.

“We just got beat today. They are a great team over there, back to the drawing board tomorrow. We are going to stick to our formula for success and that is taking it one day at a time, one play at a time,” said rookie outside linebacker Von Miller.

At the end of the day, the Broncos still control their playoff fate — win and their in.

We can still control our own destiny, and we have two weeks to do it and are going to start against Buffalo,” noted defensive end Elvis Dumervill.
