Expert Pick and Prediction

This should be an interesting game, with two teams heading in opposite directions. We also have two quarterbacks that have been playing completely opposite. Tom Brady continues to dominate, while the Broncos quarterback play has been some of the worst in all of the league.

The Broncos are going to need their defense back. That’s the same defense that allowed 52 points in the most recent loss to the Eagles. If the Broncos get down early in this game, they could be in big trouble. In the end – the Patriots are the easy bet for this game. Take the New England Patriots -7.5 over the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football.
