It's better to sit in the lower level to avoid people like that. Doesn't help in Oakland though. The harassment there starts with all the tailgaters in the parking lot pounding on your windows as you drive through. And that's when you're supporting a team they don't even hate. I can't imagine what it'd be like going in there with a Broncos jersey.

Actually it seems this couple was in the lower level. Watching the video, you can see the sign. That's just giving angry fans ammunition.

I only had to endure an empty beer cup thrown at me, a few minor threats and someone call me a racial epithet for people of Hispanic descent (which is strange because a significant part of the Raiders fan base is Hispanic).
Denver won 16-13 .

I'd like to visit Foxboro someday. I love the city of Boston. The old Garden was fantastic.
I think the key as a visiting fan is to be courteous and respectful, and not run the mouth incessantly and troll the home fans.

Looking forward to Sunday's epic duel, go BRONCOS!

I'll do a little deleting here in a bit, just a reminder that while talking about unruly fans is certainly a worthy topic, an existing thread would be the best place to put those comments. the Patriots team thread is for specifics for Patriot fans; Sunday's game, injury reports, etc., etc.

Thanks.

So who's gonna win?

Brady's record in Denver says Denver.
Denver's #1 defense says Denver.
Peyton's last hurrah says Denver.

Those are all past stats. Wonderful for lunchroom conversation.

Brady, Belichick, the Patriots following up lasts years Super Bowl with all of the garbage that surrounded them came into this year with a vengeance. If Deon Lewis, Edelman, Gronk and Blount stayed healthy (which I know in football is a tall order to stay healthy an entire season), couldn't you easily imagine another 16-0 regular season? Edelman has a game under his belt to get his timing back. Losing Mayo was tough, especially with Collins and Hightower knocked up.

Tom Brady. He's been on a mission his entire career. This year he raised the bar. When everyone went down, and the team started losing a few, his demeanor was different than I expected. Frustrated yes, but calm. No panic. Not over compensating. Just trying to work through things with the revolving door of players. We all want to believe the mission is against the NFL & Goodell. I think that's just more coffee room chatter. Tom Brady does care very much about winning and legacy, but he keeps the team first and not personal goals. Those follow with his hard work off the field and mentoring on the field.

Of course I believe the PAtriots are going all the way and repeating this year. I'm a fan. I'm nervous too of course, but Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are just that special. They are the epitome of winning in the NFL, best tandem in the history of the game. Yeah, fans outside of New England would love to see Peyton go out on top. Well, he will, on top of the Bronco he rides off on this Sunday top the golf course Brady sends him too.

I say Pats 27-10

They should have won the first game if not for a muffed punt which happened because our two top receivers who are also the two top punt returners were not there

Brady passed for 3 TD's without Edelman, Amendola and no Gronk for the last drive to tie the game. I would actually be more worried if Brock were playing but under Manning Denver won't be able to generate enough offense to keep up with the Pats and if we have both Hightower and Collins available and shut down the run forcing Manning to throw it could get ugly really quick

Not sure if the spread will be that wide.

As with most games leading up to this, I still think it's the O-Line or bust. Denver's defense is #1 for a reason. They get to Brady, and all bets may be off if he has no time to throw, even a quick slant to Edelman. And I still fear Edelman's timing even with the great game he had against KC. He almost batted a missed pass up to be intercepted, to me the highest risk with those quick slants.

I do agree that if our D shows up with the pass rush and sacks like they did all year, Manning will suffer the same as Brady could (my comment above).

Brady hung 24 on Denver this season without Edelman or Amendola....unlikely to do worse with them. Denver d didn't get to Brady without his 2 best outlet receiver highly unlikely the rush gets home with those 2 back

Timing isn't an issue Edelman showed that last week, he had the drops early but timing was never an issue and won't be Sunday Brady and Edelman have been doing their thing far too long.

As for Manning it isn't an issue getting to Manning its stopping the run that will be the key. Manning will be handing off all day unless Pats get a big lead

Pats online is average, Brady makes it look better getting ball out quick which will be the case again Sunday

Interesting read on Brady. A lot of info in their about him that I never knew. I'm not a Pats follower, so a lot of stuff in the article may be common knowledge among fans of his.
