    I think New England will give the Broncos hell today. As much as I hate Belechick, the guy is a genius, and will have a good gameplan. That being said, I think Manning is too good today and with the home crowd, will win.


    Also think the 49ers win. They are hot right now.

    I can't get a good feel at all on either of these games. I think that if Denver loads up defensively to stop the Pats rushing attack then Brady has to throw more. In that scenario Peyton gets more possessions and a shootout favors the Broncos because of their superior receiving corps. If I had to make a pick I'd say Denver by three.

    In Seattle, I have no idea. I like Seattle's home field advantage and their aggressive D, so I guess I'd take them by a FG as well.

    Hope this is the super bowl matchup, as much as it would suck to lose to them I would be happy for that franchise to win a super bowl.

    Seahawks and Patriots

    Seahawks just dont lose at home and Brady has owned Manning in his career.

    I was going to start a new thread - but check out this awesome Game of Thrones inspired intro for today's games.

    I wasn't excited for either of these games, but after watching this I am amped for both games!

    Just hoping for a great game in the AFC but I guess if I had to pick who I wanted to win it'd be the Broncos. Huge fan of Russell Wilson so I'm going with the Seahawks. I think the Broncos-Seahawks would also be the best super bowl matchup out of all the possibiities

    I'm cheering for the Broncos, but after watching them all year, I feel like they need a rule change to help out DBs on some of these pick plays.

    I don't really care who wins this early game, but I wish the NFL would address and clarify how they want offensive pick plays to be called. Both of these teams make heavy use of pick plays in their passing games, knowing that the refs are reluctant to make the call. I was shocked when the Offensive PI was called already, but shortly afterward they completely let another one go. Just inconsistent.

    13-3 at the half. Hopefully this time Denver remembers to show up for the second half.

    Brady does not look sharp at all. Uncharacteristically inaccurate.
