We want to hear from you – call the winner and the final score for Monday Night’s game in New England. Take the poll and dish it out in the comments. Winner gets week-long bragging rights. Here’s Kyle’s take —
The Broncos enter New England with the 32nd ranked pass defense in the league. Hard to imagine with corners like Champ Bailey and Dre Bly, but the lack of pass rush and trouble at the safety position has really exposed the Broncos defense this season. Will the Patriots be able to take advantage?
Probably not. Just last week the 32nd ranked pass defense came to New England and held the Patriots to 10 points – the San Diego Chargers (now ranked 31st thanks to the game). Matt Cassel and his offensive line couldn’t get the job done.
The Broncos have the #1 offense in the AFC – many question the running game, but the Broncos have the most rushing yards in the AFC, as well as the most passing yards. If they avoid turnovers the Broncos should put up 30-40 points on the Patriots.
The Prediction: Broncos 34, Patriots 21.
