Sunday Night Football, Week 16. Tonight the Denver Broncos host the New England Patriots.

The 7-7 Denver Broncos come into this game sitting in second place in the AFC West and badly needing a win to keep their faint playoff hopes alive. The Broncos got off to a disastrous start to the season, losing five of their first six games, before reeling off five straight victories to get back in the playoff hunt. However, the Broncos have dropped two of their last three games and their playoff hopes are hanging by a thread. A loss tonight would put them on life support.

The 3-11 Patriots have struggled all season. Thier quarterback play has been a disaster, and their offense has been nonexistent. The Patriots have scored seven or less points in a stunning five different games this season. The Patriots have lost six of their last seven games and 9 of 11, as the illustrious Patriots career of the legendary Bill Belichick grinds towards an ignominious end. The Patriots have won just one home game all year, but this is a road game for them, so perhaps they have a chance.

I’m picking the Denver Broncos to take care of business and get a much needed win at home tonight, where they haven’t lost since early October.

Enjoy the game everybody. Please leave your comments on the game below, in the section cleverly marked “comments.”
