Are the Patriots the favorites in the AFC?

That's the question going around after the Pats took down the Broncos Sunday night at Gillette Stadium.

But Lou Merloni says the Broncos would be a tough game if the two teams play again in the playoffs.

"Without a doubt," Troy Brown said. "They have Peyton Manning. He's probably the second-best quarterback to TOm Brady out there. He's done a lot of good things, he's had some comeback wins over the Patriots in the past but again it's January, it's outside in Denver, and he hasn't had to deal with that in an AFC Championship game on that level since he's been a pro. He's been inside. He's been in Indianapolis his entire career, and it's much easier inside to execute that offense than it is outside in the cold."

They all discuss the Brady - Manning debate.

So we ask you: With all the elements involved, which team is the better one this season?
