Another difficult prediction arises this week. The Patriots are going to be a tough home test for the Broncos. No matter how you slice it and dice it, Brady and Belichick always find a way.
I think what could give the Broncos a slight edge is playing the Patriots on their short week. Having a banged up team only a few days of rest can hurt a team.
I can see turnovers being committed by both teams. I will give out a bold prediction that Rob Gronkowski will be one of them to turn the ball over.
If the Broncos are going to win the game, they also need to keep the penalties and personal fouls in check. The Patriots always makes a team pay with costly mistakes, so they will have to be limited.
Osweiler will throw for nearly 300 yards in this game and add two more touchdowns and one interception. The running game will rush for 125 yards and one touchdown. Vernon Davis will record his first 100 yard game as a Bronco and score one touchdown.
If the Broncos can get to at least 20 points, they will have a chance with their defense. I think the Broncos get to that magic number of points and end the Patriots undefeated season.
