There will be debate about how good a team Denver really is at this point. They've scored just 19 points in 2 games and Plummer hasn't looked all that spectacular. Here's what we do know: 1. No matter the competition, they haven't allowed a TD yet. 2. The Bell-Bell RB duo has done well so far. 3. The Pats are to Manning as the Broncos are to Brady. Overall, he's struggled against them. We know what there attacking defense did to Brady last season and so far this year he's been below his usual performance level. It will be interesting to see if he can right the ship against a team that has at times dominated him in the past. Obviously being at home will be a boost. (I was beginning to think the NFL had declared it illegal for the Patriots to actually HOST the Broncos in a game ) It's a conference game so every win we can get is critical because tiebreakers could definately come into play with a strong AFC this season. We have a nationally televised game at the same time that a lot of people are doubting the Patriots. Hopefully we can make a statement.
