On top of the NE's D has been meh, and Peyton will tear it apart. I see a 7+ pt gap in Denver's favor.
Although Brady's perfomance at Mile High has been okay at best since his start, our receiving depth gives us far too many options for Denver to try to cover.
They can cover Gronk and Hernandez all day, but Wes is the ultimate slot and I would love to see Lloyd burn Bailey deep. Branch can be our second deep thread should Lloyd be doubled up on all day. And nobody seems to pay attention to Woodhead which could be super important for NE.
Don't forget New England actually has a running game this year.
Wilfork, Jones, Hightower and Love will have a field day with Manning & McGahee. If Denver wants to beat NE, it's going to have to be 30+ points. I'm sure it'd be a high scoring shootout no matter who wins.
As a NE fan I'm more worried about the possibility of playing Baltimore or potentially Indy.
