Whenever a regular season NFL game receives as much hype as Sunday night’s Broncos/Patriots game did, it often seems as if the actual game is anti-climatic. This one, however, may have exceeded the hype.
Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal for New England after a misplayed punt return by Denver, lifting the Patriots to a 34-31 overtime victory over the Broncos on Sunday night.
The world will be watching Sunday night as legendary quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning face each other for the 14th time in their illustrious rivalry.
Here’s a game-by-game look at the remaining schedule for the 2013 New England Patriots.
With the Colts and Broncos squaring off this week on Sunday Night Football, some are wondering if Indy, at home with a 4-2 record, can deal the juggernaut Broncos their very first loss of the season. Is this the week Denver falls?
With the seemingly incomparable and record-setting offense set to square off against the monumentally futile Jacksonville Jaguars this week, the line of Denver -28 ties a record for the biggest spread ever set.
You laugh now, but there was a time, very recently, when it was a debate. There was a time, when we thought the kid had commandeered the throne. There was a time when, when we thought it was the dawn of one empire, and the dusk of another.
The New York Football Giants often refer to “Giants Football” which denotes an ability to run the ball and play intelligently. For the first two games of the NFL season, the Giants have demonstrated neither, as well as an alarming rate of turnovers. New York fell to 0-2 as Denver scored 28 second half points to put away the Giants 41-23 in the New Jersey Meadowlands on Sunday afternoon.
The Giants will face the Denver Broncos on Sunday who, thanks to their Thursday night season opener against the Ravens, have had 10 days to rest. Both teams are nursing key injuries, but will the extra days off give Denver the leg up in the contest?
Offensively, the New York Giants and Denver Broncos put up stellar statistics in their season openers last week. But in the stat that really counts, the Broncos have a 1-0 record, and the Giants are seeking their first victory in the 2013 NFL season. New York will be less concerned about the “Manning Bowl” victor, and more interested in playing an error-free game.
