If Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos can knock off Tom Brady and the 10-3 New England Patriots, then there will officially be something very special about their season.
Somehow "Tebow Time" has swept across the nation, as the Broncos find themselves riding a six-game winning streak and are 7-1 with the polarizing quarterback under center.
This team is much more than Tebow though, as they've been sparked defensively by rookie Von Miller, and have benefited from the clutch kicking of Matt Prater.
This will undoubtedly be the Broncos' greatest test, and it just may prove to be the benchmark for whether or not they really can make the playoffs.
Tom Brady and the Patriots will come into town boasting the second best passing offense in the league, averaging 319.3 ypg, and arguably the best non-quarterback in the NFL in tight end Rob Gronkowski.
This game is going to bring out the true colors of both teams involved, and it should be one of the best on the NFL Week 15 docket.
Patriots: Did Not Participate In Practice - Safety Patrick Chung (foot), tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back).
Broncos: Did Not Participate In Practice - Safety David Bruton (Achilles), safety Brian Dawkins (neck), cornerback Andre' Goodman (concussion).
Fantasy Big Plays:
Start: You gotta start Tim Tebow here just from a fantasy perspective. He should be able to get points on the ground, and the Patriots are allowing 308.7 yards per game through the air. Even Tebow should be able to throw against them.
Sit: Nobody I would recommend sitting in this game. Ton of great options. Gronkowski, Brady, Welker are all great plays, as are Denver's receivers against the Patriots' defense.
Keys To Patriots Win:
The Patriots need to score touchdowns, which in the end will come down to Tom Brady.
Like it or not the Broncos system isn't made to score a ton of points, so if Brady can get Gronkowski and Welker going, there is no way the Broncos are going to be able to keep up.
Keys To Broncos Win:
If the Patriots' key is scoring, the Broncos must focus all their efforts on keeping it a close game. The offense can't do it, so it's going to come down to the defense.
