Seeing an opportunity to take a shot at its team's AFC Championship Game opponent, the Denver Police Department just couldn't help itself. 

It took its shot—and executed to perfection.

The New England Patriots offense couldn't get much going in the first half of Sunday's tilt against the Denver Broncos, and quarterback Tom Brady was 9-of-20 for 87 yards and no touchdowns with two interceptions. Those struggles left New England trailing 17-9 at the break.

Late in the second quarter, DPD had some fun at the Patriots' expense:

Broncos fans would probably appreciate it if the police department waited until after the game to look into the matter.
