Denver Broncos vs New England Patriots
The Denver lost to the New England 31-21 last season in Patriots home base in exactly what was their only loss of the year by several scores. The loss to the New England in Week 5 was likewise the last loss of the normal season for the Denver.
You could wager that Wes Welker wishes to have a huge game against his former group, the exact same group that pushed him aside for the more youthful Danny Amendola. Welker's visibility gives the Denver something they really did not have the last time these two interplay: a 3rd tool in the passing game. Expect Welker to make a large influence.
The New England are taking a danger, and they could be without a bunch of their top onslaught manufacturers from last period if Rob Gronkowski doesn't return healthy. Until tested or else, the New England understand specifically what they are doing offensively changing from Amendola to Welker, so do not expect them to be any sort of less prolific on offense due to the fact that of the button.
Up until the Denver defeat the Patriots, the American Football Conference’s best team might live in Patriots. The Denver would certainly prefer to defeat the New England in this game, but do not be delighted if both groups reunite in the playoffs.
The difference in this game could come down to the manufacturing of both slot receivers, due to the fact that both teams have the personnel to decrease the outside passing assault. Do not be amazed if this game is equally as much Amendola vs Welker as it is Tom Brady vs Peyton Manning .
New England Patriots vs Denver Broncos
Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady is constantly certain to captivate, but Wes Welker's go back to Patriots will surely grab the headlines this time around. Will the New England permit him to dominate the stat sheet also?
The Denver had their way with the New England the last time around, with Patriots making a couple of timely stops to stem the Broncos racking up opportunities, as well as were held to simply seven points up until the 3rd quarter.
The Denver sacked Brady 4 times in that game, however simply compelled him on 7 of his 35 dropbacks. Brady has had success against Denver protective coordinator Jack Del Rio in the past, and the New England have scored 125 factors versus the Denver in their previous three meetings. If the Denver protection is unable to produce pressure once more and they'll be without Elvis Dumervil this time around around, the New England offense might go off easily when again.
Prediction: Patriots 34, Broncos 28
