Default Denver Broncos vs New England Patriots

The "Manning vs Brady" game. Easily two of the greatest quarterbacks in our current generation and locks for the Hall of Fame. Broncos are 2-2 and 2nd in the AFC West. Patriots are 2-2 and 1st in the AFC East.

Who ya got?

This will be the late game Sunday (4:25). It is in Foxboro.

You know what? I am going to go with the upset and take the road team and Manning. The Patriots are the better team and have homefield advantage, but are weak in pass defense, near the bottom of the league. Their run defense is good and their offense is a monster both running and passing the ball, but I think Manning can exploit that weak secondary.

Denver has a good passing and running game, as well as a good defense, they just do not have that hole in the secondary and I think they can stop Brady and that sporadic but lethal offense.

Broncos by 4.

NE lost their home opener so they will be fired up to aviod a repeat. Crowd the line of scrimmage, pressure Manning and force them to beat you with the deep ball.

NE by 7.

Manning is definitely the underdog...

This isn't "Manning vs. Brady"...This is "Manning playing his fifth game with a team" against "A guy whose been with his team for the last decade"...

I'm taking Manning and Denver in the upset on the road. I think Peyton will pick apart that soft Patriot defense. Manning is beginning to gel with his young but talented receiving corps and Denver should make the playoffs this year if everything continues to go well. Peyton is the master at adapting and taking control. He's starting to figure his receivers out and developing a connection. They could surprise people in the playoffs.

It is early, but I think the Broncos made the right decision in bringing on Manning.

Like me I went against these 2 teams odds for playing each other. And like me both of us lost.

And the Sunday night game I enjoyed losing as it was one great game, except for a few calls by the refs., or lack there of.
