Pats deserve to go to Denver and look pretty hard to beat. Denver is going to have to play their best game for four quarters.
Andy Reid is famous for bad clock management at the end of games, Its crazy for such a good coach. Pat's F-ed up regular season, Now they'll probably have to go to Denver where they never play good.

You've counted your chickens before they've hatched.

The Broncos have won nothing as of yet.

If the Broncos lose tomorrow, the Patriots have a home game against the Steelers.

In what universe? Likely that the Pats will travel to Denver where they will need their lucky rabbit's foot.

Brady is a truly a great quarterback. May be their year in Denver?

We will get a better idea of just what kind of team Denver is....in roughly 5 1/2 hours.

Even with Peyton being more of a game manager (I really hate that term) due to his inability to launch the ball like he used to, the Steelers IMo are just too banged up and missing too many key weapons. Denver also won't forget the Steelers coming back to win earlier in the season. I think we are going to see Brady/Manning one more time.

The Patriots are 0-2 at Denver in post season, so losing the #1 seed to them could come back to haunt the Pats. But, the mission is still on, and maybe this is the year Brady gets past Denver at Denver (unless we host the Steelers instead by some mild surprise).

"If" the donkeys can actually beat Pitt they will be the ones needing "luck" to beat the Pats especially if Peyton "one and done" Manning is still at QB

Broncos were lucky to beat the Pats last game without Edelman and for much of the game Gronk....with those two and Hightower back on D Pats will carve up the Donkeys

What Pats fan isn't just loving this. Without a shadow of a doubt this is the greatest NFL dynasty of all-time, because getting to that many AFC (or NFC) Championship games is insane. I just love being a Patriots fan.

One down, two to go.
Also doing it in the time of the salary cap, Insane.

I agree, Steelers are pretty well beat up unfortunately. Pat's f-d it up by not beating either eagles,jets or dolphins. They made it much harder on themselves.

IMHO, this is what makes this dynasty the greatest in NFL history, bar none. I could care less about Montana's 4-0 in Super Bowls. We'll never be able to compare to Brady because Brady got to 6, and not just 4. And Brady has led a team that doesn't really have a bonafide running game, nor other than Moss has he ever had a legitimate #1 tall deep threat to play with.

And for those who say the Pats wins were because of defense, haha. The offense is generally towards the top of the league every year, thus that argument is null and void.

I am not a Pats fan, but agree that Brady is the best ever....often said I have never seen a QB do so much with so little....Now, to say Montana can't COMPARE with Brady, that may be a bit harsh
