Broncos Patriots Preview
The Denver Broncos will be hoping for another prayer as the go into play the New England Patriots in the AFC divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium.
Last week the Broncos shocked the NFL community as they easily managed to beat the Pittsburg Steelers 29-23. The mobility of Tebow was too much to handle for the Steelers defense but it was not just the running game that won the Broncos the game. Tebow actually had a great game throwing the ball for 316 yards and 2 TD’s also adding 50 yards rushing. What Tebow will we see in this game? The Tewbow 2 games before playoffs who couldn’t buy a pass completion or Tebow of last week. Injuries to note for the Broncos are; Brian Dawkins and leading WR Eric Decker.
The New England Patriots had the week off as they captured a bye in the AFC division. They finished the season 13-3 but they were not the powerhouse of past season. The Patriots are getting older and it has showed on the defensive side. On the bright side the Patriots have had best success at defending the run. Good news for the Pats is they are “healthy” this team has been banged up all season, close to 8 players are classified questionable but from what I have seen all are expected to play. Coach Bill Belichick has been watching video all week and you know he will have a game plan to keep Tebow contained.
Broncos Patriots Betting Pick
13.5 points is a big spread for a playoff game, and if the Broncos play like they did last week they most definitely could cover the spread or even win. But I see the injury to Eric Decker being a big factor to the team. The Pats came into this season knowing their team is elderly on the Defensive side and is the reason the made their bench deep. With most of their roster active the Patriots will be able to rotate their players and keep them fresh.
Bottom Line; Although it is a big spread I still like the Patriots in this game. They have the experience and talent to win this game and cover the 13.5 point spread.
