for the money you have to go with the Broncos but I am hoping the Pats find a way to win tomorrow. But I just don't see it happening and like someone said in the media earlier this week, peyton seemed to be on a mission from week 1 of this season which is why I have to give the broncos the edge

broncos 35

A lot of people have been talking about the Pats run game and rightfully so. However, I think they're really going to test the Broncos secondary as well. Unless, of course, the run game manages to work as well as it has recently.

Bill B. is notorious for attacking weaknesses. The Broncos secondary is in shambles right now, as we saw at the end of the Chargers game.

The Pats have been playing their best ball the last few games. They are on a roll, momentum matters. The Broncos played well last week but not great. It took a superb 3rd and long very late last week to stamp the win. I think its important to be on a roll going into and in the playoffs. I dont get that from the Broncos, but I do see that in the Pats.

The only way the Broncos win is if their offense is really, really on point. And I dont really see that happening. The Pats have be known to give up long plays but overall, their D is not bad. They might give up a play here or there but I see them playing well most of the game and doing enough to keep the Broncos in check. They get turnovers and Manning, lets be honest, isnt at his best turnover wise in the playoffs. He had one, shouldve had two, last week.

Lol, yeah it has been noted in the NE area as well. They even asked Brady and Edelman about it during interviews.

If the Pats don't blitz peyton manning on 3rd down then they have no shot.


I am so sick of teams not making an effort to get peyton off the field.

Pats loss because


their offense came out throwing instead of running to eat clock and kept manning on the sidelines

their defense only blitzed manning one time on 3rd and long in the 1st half which was the difference in the game

The Pats took what the Broncos gave them. Tom made some errant throws but the Broncos dropped some key passes and left some points out there so that's a wash.

Had the Pats blitzed Peyton more, he would have scortched the secondary and the Broncos would have taken those to the house, so that strategy would have been a wash too.

I don't think that is true because the one time they did blitz manning on 3rd and long they was able to hold them to a FG. So the fact that they didn't do it more is what I feel hurt their chances to win.
