Pick of the Week: Denver VS New England

I know that many of you who are reading this will be sitting down at 3:05 on Sunday watching this game on CBS. Therefore, I decided to write a post about it. This is now the 17th time that Peyton Manning and Tom Brady have met in a game. Peyton is coming off of an outstanding game against the Steelers with a 56.8% completion percentage, 222 yards, and not a single interception. The last time the Broncos and Patriots met, the Broncos won in overtime. The Patriots are 3rd in the league in points with 29.1 points per game, however, they are 30th in the league in rushing yards, with only 80.7 yards per game. I believe rushing will be what this game comes down to. With the Patriots not having the best rushing offense and having their leading rusher out for the postseason, they do not stand a chance against the Broncos. It will be a good game with the Broncos winning on a field goal with 3 seconds left. Final Score: Den-20 NE-17

We cannot forget, however, that the Broncos need to score in order to achieve that final score. Denver has not been very good at scoring, only averaging 22.2 points per game. If the Broncos can even get two touchdowns, I believe that they will win. The Broncos defense is one of the toughest in the leagues, only allowing under 5000 yards total in the regular season. I know many believe that the Patriots are going back to the Super Bowl, but I believe that this year will be the year of the Broncos.
