The New England Patriots travel to Denver to face the Broncos with a trip to Super Bowl 50 on the line. It's being called many things such as Brady vs. Manning 17. But one thing it's not being called is the best game of the weekend.
Many people see this game as a blowout. They feel Brady and Belichick are to much of a power for the Broncos to overcome. They might be right, but what you have to remember is the Broncos have one of the best quarterbacks of all time and this season's best defense.
This will be a close with Manning being the key. Everyone knows he his on his last leg and this may be his last game. We also know he struggles during the playoffs even when he is 100 %. But Manning is also capable of putting a team on his back and carrying them to a Super Bowl.
On the other side, New England has put together another fabulous season. Tom Brady has played with a chip on his shoulder ever since last year's AFC title game, the infamous "Deflate Gate" incident. Brady has put all that behind him and has something to prove by reaching another Super Bowl.
As I have already said this will be a close game. The Patriot's will pull away midway through the third quarter and will represent the AFC in Super Bowl 50.
Final score: New England 30, Denver 14,
