Could be a great game. And I'm surprised it's not Prime Time. Last week Brady and Manning were both playing very well. Could be a shoot-out. I think we'll edge it as a slightly more well rounded team. 27-21 Patriots

HolyRoller10 03.10.2012 02:25 PM

I'm going to savor this game because I know what's going to happen. Runaway.

Get the popcorn ready.

Ding ding...Round 14

Montanamagic 03.10.2012 03:10 PM

Brady will light this up much like Ryan did in week 2. Manning will stay in touch first half, but in the second, watch Brady throw it all over them like Schaub did. Pats all the way.

Denver 24 - 38 New England

Oh we can but hope! Don't really fancy another losing record for a week!

BritishBronco 03.10.2012 04:10 PM

Not got a great feeling about this one, hopefully it's at least a bit more competitive than last years divisional game

boaby81 03.10.2012 04:39 PM

Hopefully the Broncs win.

Can't see it though.

Magnitude 03.10.2012 10:19 PM

Shootout! Patriots 48-34 Broncos

FlagOnThePlay 03.10.2012 11:49 PM

Don't know what the score will be...
But it will be a great game

will be fun to follow

hope for no injuries and fantastic football

Go Broncos!

Football G 04.10.2012 05:42 AM

Haven't managed to catch the Broncos yet so I am definitely tuning in for this one. Have a feeling the pats will edge it but would love to see manning really give them a run for there money.

nepalex 04.10.2012 09:07 AM

Just noticed that Sky have this one as well. So blacked out on Gamepass again for the second week in a row. Hate it!

dddooommm 04.10.2012 09:55 AM

Sucks that the game won't be on GP.

Hoping Denver can roll into this week with the same form they showed last week against the Raiders. Pats looked decent in the second half last week against Buffalo.

Too close to call for me.

... Pats looked decent in the second half last week against Buffalo.....

6 possesions...6 TD's that's what you describe as being decent :)

Ensign 04.10.2012 04:36 PM

So what happens if on special teams, Gronk hits Gronk? Black hole, they morph into one giant Gronk,

The Milehigh Broncos 05.10.2012 12:25 PM

We have not had a good record of late playing the pats at Foxboro. The patriots havn't looked convincing this year and last weeks 6TD's in the 2nd half was against a terrible Bills defense.

Lets hope we can keep it close and dont be surprised if Manning edges it. This is great, after 5 weeks I will have seen all but 1 of the Brocnos games live. Chargers next well on the BBC Red button as well. Great stuff.

Donnellys Dreamers 05.10.2012 02:29 PM

And then we have our bye and then we are on SNF vs Saints so we are on TV next two weeks as well. Not bad coverage!!!

This is going to be very tough but im glad we have Manning leading us into this game and not ... You know who!!! lol

herrsatz 05.10.2012 02:29 PM

GRONKOWSKI BOWL~!!!

Broncos 38 Patriots 10 :p

Seriously though, I have no idea what is going to happen other than R.Gronk running wild (again). Hopefully Peyton, Decker and Thomas can keep up and the scoreboard gets lit up like a pinball machine. Should be at least 70+ points scored in this one.

JamesGall13 05.10.2012 11:14 PM

Hope Broncos win this one, dislike Brady. Want Peyton Manning to win this show down.

Csna 06.10.2012 11:04 AM

Looks like rookie Tavon Wilson will be starting at the back with Chung interesting to see how this pans out. Wonder if we will see Dowling playing FS at all?

Scots Warrior 07.10.2012 08:35 AM

High scoring,big passing mash up.....

Would like a Broncos win but don't expect it. Pats in stride after last week.

Pats by 7.

Montanamagic 07.10.2012 08:43 AM

Yeah, still Pats to win but you gotta like Eric Decker to be one in with the chance of a big night in this match-up.

HolyRoller10 07.10.2012 02:10 PM

Football makes strange bedfellows.

In no other universe am I pulling for Tom Terrific and Bill "Mr. Cartmenez" Belichick.

But Manning needs to go down and go down hard (morale-wise, you...know, just morale.) ;)

Maybe this will end the debate.

Manning was actually the one who stepped up in the 2nd half against the Texans and threw a number of unanswered TD's... We were only let down by a slow start on both sides of the ball in that game, otherwise we would have had a genuine chance of keeping up with probably the best team in the AFC.

From what I've seen of the Patriots this year, it's a bit like last year again - No Defence. They may have looked emphatic against the Bills, but lets remember, it's the Bills. The Broncos D is far better and more experienced in key areas, so I can't see Brady getting above 35 points again. On top of that, I have to fancy Manning stepping up and putting a high number on the board, so as long as we make the first few possessions count, I think the Broncos have got this one!

You've not seen much then. I couldn't disagree more.

I have to be honest I haven't seen many of your games in full so I'm not going to try and argue with you about it... However, to give up an average of around 30 points a game is not by any means a Good defence...

You are also ranked 20th in overall D so far, and you haven't had the most difficult of schedules. I guess we shall see tonight though!

and remind us what your prediction was last week again. :D

Wiser EFC 07.10.2012 06:51 PM

Broncos win this but I disagree with everyone who says it will be a high scoring shootout.

Broncos 24
Patriots 19

I'd go Broncos 34 - 31 Pats

Well it turns out the Raiders are crap. I hope you didn't take that victory to mean you can hang with the elite?

If you beat the Pats, I will be shocked.

And give you props...

And admit the Pats were overrated. :p

Just saw Knowshon Moreno was not active for today's game. There's a shock. He isn't ever active when he's in the game either.

BritishBronco 07.10.2012 08:27 PM

When was the last time we had a decent kick/punt return

Thomas has been to the Moreno school of handling a football

9erfan 07.10.2012 08:31 PM

He just doesn't secure the ball!

manic_matt 07.10.2012 08:31 PM

Get in there!!

BritishBronco 07.10.2012 08:31 PM

Getting a horrible sense of deja vu here
