Patriots high-tempo schtick won't work in Denver. 2 reasons:
- it's really tough to go no-huddle on the road. Crowd noise makes getting the calls out at the line really tough.
- Patriots will feel the effects of 5280 much more than Broncos will if they try to play fast. I dare them to try this for 4 quarters...guarantee they will be huffing/puffing in Q4 while we are still fresh.
combine these two reasons with Joe Mays being off the field, DJ Williams being on the field, and I give our D a good chance at keeping Brady & company in check. Hell, I don't even care about Gronkowski. Pitta just hung 7-125-2 on us...BFD. Gronkowski/Herenandez will get theirs, as long as the rest of the team is contained, we will be ok.
