New England Patriots had a good day on Monday against the Ravens. The game shouldn’t have been as close as it was before Brady’s pass to Hogan, but the Patriots made a big statement against a team that led the league in total defense going into Week 15.
They will be facing another tough defensive team in Broncos, but this time they will be playing on the road as they are making a trip to Denver. Broncos had a rough loss to the Titans that happen to them this past round, and their Playoff dreams are hanging in the balance. A win here is a must for the Broncos, and there is no tougher team to earn that win against than the Bill Belichick‘s company.
Brady has struggled against the Broncos in the past couple of years when the match was played in Denver. He is going to show up for this one, but we think Broncos’ defense will play with the sense of urgency and will want to make a statement in this duel against the Patriots.
The key in this contest will be what can Denver do on the offensive side of the ball. Patriots’ defense has been somewhat shaky in November, but they responded to the challenge in December and are now playing really well.
It’s going to be tough for New England to leave Denver victorious since the Broncos are always playing them well at home, but we think that extra motivation that Brady will have is going to lead the Pats to their 12th victory of the year. We are picking the New England Patriots to win this game 24:21. Overtime is a possibility as well.
