The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are a dream match for the AFC Championship game that will determine which top team will represent their conference in the Super Bowl. Two future NFL Hall of Fame quarterbacks will battle for perhaps the last time in the postseason when we watch Patriots vs Broncos online free live streaming on CBS Sports.
The Broncos come into the game as the favorite to win as they have the home field advantage. Back in November at Forborough, the Patriots and Tom Brady erased a 24-0 halftime hole to rally and top Peyton Manning and the Broncos by a final score of 34-31 in overtime. It was a miserable game for Manning who ended with a 70.4 passer rating as a lone blemish in an otherwise season for the ages.
The Brady versus Manning battle and Walker playing against his former team won’t be the only big story today. In order for each team to keep the other team’s quarterback off the field, the running game will be especially important. Expect Denver to hand the ball to Knowshon Moreno early and often, especially considering Moreno ran for 224 yards, tops in his career, against the Patriots back in November. Watch Broncos vs Patriots online streaming live free on CBS Sports today to see if Moreno can have another big game.
New England counters with LeGarrette Blount who has come on of late but was a non-factor in the earlier game. Blount ran for four touchdowns against the Colts in last week’s AFC Divisional game that disposed of the Colts from the NFL Playoffs by a score of 43-22. He only ran for 13 yards against the Broncos in November, so expect that number to rise dramatically today.
Injuries in the receiving corps have been an issue for both teams throughout the course of the season. Broncos tight end Julius Thomas was not available for the first meeting between the teams due to injury. Meanwhile Tom Brady has been without the services of tight end Rob Gronkowski for most of the season after he went down with a knee injury that effectively ended his season.
