As arguably one of the most anticipated matchups in Week 15, the New England Patriots will head to the Mile High City to take on the red-hot Denver Broncos and up-and-coming quarterback Tim Tebow. With the Broncos having won six games in a row in thrilling fashion, everyone in the NFL has begun to pay attention to the Denver franchise and their chances of making something in the happen if they can win the AFC West division title.

Coming into this showdown between extremely popular quarterbacks Tom Brady and Tim Tebow, the Patriots are also riding a winning streak after having won five in a row. Despite their winning streak and New England being on the verge of an AFC East division title, the Patriots have flown relatively under the radar this season and have taken a backseat to teams dominating the headlines like the Broncos, New Orleans Saints and the undefeated Green Bay Packers.

With that being said, this game against the Broncos in Week 15 will be a statement game in my opinion as the Patriots will look to put up a big number on Denver this Sunday in the Mile High City. The biggest challenge against the Broncos won’t be Tim Tebow though because the Denver defense is as good as any in the NFL right now.

There is no question that superstar quarterback and three-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady can torch an opposing secondary like no other gunslinger in the league can, but he will have to deal with the constant pressure of Elvis Dumervil and rookie Von Miller. Brady’s chances of coming out on top are favorable, but the Broncos might be able to pull off the upset.

Perhaps one of the biggest problems for the New England Patriots in Week 15 will be their banged up defense. Along with injuries to players on defense, the Patriots have been arguably one of the worst teams in the NFL on that side of the football this season and have found it very difficult to contain opposing offenses. Tim Tebow and company will almost certainly try to take advantage of that in the ground game with some hardnosed running back by Tebow and running back Willis McGahee.

There is no telling how this game will pan out, but with the Patriots struggling against the Broncos in the Bill Belichick era there is a good chance that John Fox’s squad can give this Super Bowl title contender a run for their money.

As of right now, the New England Patriots are favored to get the win over the Denver Broncos in Week 15 with a -7 point spread. The Patriots might be able to be the first team to get the best of Tim Tebow as a starter (besides the Detroit Lions), but I believe the Broncos will continue to be competitive with another inspiring performance in the second half with Tebow leading the way.

Take the Broncos +7.
