This Sunday night, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots battle it out against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. This time, though, there is something more to figure out. This is Wes Welker's first game against the Patriots since he was cut and signed by the Broncos. So this is more than just Brady and Manning playing against each other, this is Wes Welker's chance to prove that it was a mistake to let him go. If you ask me, he's already done that, considering he has sixty-one receptions for six hundred forty-eight yards, with 10.6 yards per catch and nine touchdown receptions.
Tom Brady, meanwhile, has not had the best season of his Hall of Fame career, but he has won seven games, and winning is the number one priority for any quarterback. Coming off of the controversial loss to the Panthers, the Pats have a bit of a chip on their shoulder, and will probably be very determined to win this game. Tom Brady possesses a 9-4 record against Peyton Manning, and is hoping to win his tenth game against The Sheriff. Personally, I think this could be the best game of the year. The Broncos do have a bit of an advantage, considering the comparison between the two QBs:
Touchdowns: Manning: 34, Brady: 14.
Interceptions: Manning: 6, Brady: 7.
Passing Yards: Manning: 3,572, Brady: 2,552.
Passer Rating: Manning: 118.3, Brady: 83.6.
This game is going to be so close that it's almost impossible to predict. I can see it going either way. Whatever the score is, I bet the game will be decided by no more than a touchdown. Truthfully, I can easier see the Broncos preforming a blowout than the Pats. But, if both the offense and defense can keep up, than the Patriots can definitely win this. But, that's a big "if." I can't give a good prediction, so I'll just leave it at this: It's going to be good!
