Sunday Night Football Broncos at Patriots Open Thread

Quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning face off for the 14th time Sunday night. - Jared Wickerham

Sunday Night Football Open Thread.

Two of the best quarterbacks of this generation and of all time face off for the 14th time on Sunday Night Football when the Denver Broncos (9-1), led by four-time MVP Peyton Manning, travel to New England to face the Patriots (7-3), led by three-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady, at Gillette Stadium.

Game Time: 8:30 p.m. ET

TV: NBC

Online: Audio Pass | Game Rewind

Odds: Broncos -2.5

Will Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who is 9-4 against Manning with Brady at quarterback, be able to confuse Manning with his defensive schemes as he has in the past? Will the Broncos defense, which has played inconsistently all season, have any answer for Tom Brady and his offense now that Brady has all of his weapons healthy? Will this contest just turn into an offensive shootout between the future Hall of Fame quarterbacks, or will someone else make a big play to win this game? Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the action.
