Week 15 is here and, once again, the 8-5 Broncos are in the national spotlight as the 10-3 New England Patriots visit the Mile High City. As impressive as the Broncos’ six game winning streak is, the Patriots bring a five game winning streak to Colorado and no doubt are fully intent on making it six. The Broncos, given what I’ve experienced the last month-and-a-half, will definitely be poised and ready to prevent the Patriots from achieving their six consecutive win. Today’s matchup will be the 42nd meeting between Denver and New England. In the previous 41 meetings, the Broncos hold a 25-16 advantage, including a 16-8 record at home.
