Who does Twitter Nation blame for Broncos' choke job v. Patriots?
After the Broncos' 34-31 humiliating loss to the Pats last night, marked by a blown 24-point halftime lead, Twitter Nation exploded with frustration, most of it aimed at four Broncos: Peyton Manning, for a sub-par performance, Montee Ball for a key fumble, Wes Welker for failing to wave off a punt soon enough, and Tony Carter, who got in the way of a ball, making the winning field goal possible. Do you blame any of these four? Decide after checking out the following tweet collection, accompanied by photos from the game.

I saw the final play of the Pats/Broncos game. Man that SUCKS it comes down to a special teams goof. Especially when Welker was involved.

I can hope that Tony Carter pulling a Rahim Moore tonight prevents another terrible moment in the playoffs. Disgusting 2nd half. #Broncos

If Moreno is hurt bad, #Broncos awful draft decision to take Montee Ball over Eddie Lacy (or Zac Stacy 3 rounds later) will look even worse.

Broncos should just keep Moreno in 24/7. Montee Ball is useless. His fumble earlier in the game KILLED the Broncos.

Montee Ball fumble cost the Broncos that game, straight up would have won if he held onto the football.

#Broncos dont forget who started the skid. He does it every time. Montee Ball choke artist.

#Broncos suck I thought Peyton Manning was the best Quarterback in the NFL and how do you let the Patriots come back and win the game
