Primetime for Broncos

Are you ready for some football???? I know I am. As everyone should know by now we have the MNF game coming up against New England up in Foxborough. This was a game that I had circled and highlighted furiosly with a neon green marker. The color green was symbolic and it signafied the good old fashion greenbacks. Cash money, dinero if you will. If you are a betting man, this would've been your game. The game itself has actually lost a bit of it's luster with Tom Brady went down with a season ending knee injury in week 1.  

It's too bad because The Broncos own a 9-2 record against the mighty Patriots since 1992. Being one of the few teams to have success against the Pats, Denver owns a 5-0 record against the spread and are 4-1 straight up since 1992. This game had upset written all over it. Ahh what could've been....

Now the tides have turned and Denver will enter this game as a 3-point favorite rather than the 14-point underdogs they opened the season as at the beginning of the year. I might be the only one who actually wished Tom Brady was playing simply because I feel the Broncos would win this game regardless.  

Denver plays well on Monday nights and I don't expect that to change this week. Despite concerns defensively and with injuries to key players Selvin Young, Tony Scheffler, and Eddie Royal, I think the Broncos will get back on track with a win. If history teaches us anything, it's that the Broncos flat out own New England.

 ALL Day's projection: Broncos 37 Pats 14. Top Performers: Jay Cutler 22-34, 325 yards, 3 TDs, Eddie Royal 4 rec, 86yards, 1 TD. Brandon Marshall 10 Rec, 141 yards, and 2 TDs . 

- ALL Day
