Both the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos come into Sunday night’s game banged up.
And whatever team can overcome their injuries could have the best shot of winning and improving their playoff position in the AFC.
Andy Hart on Patriots Football Weekly discusses how the injuries on both sides could impact the matchups.
“There are matchup problems all across the secondary,” Hart said. “Which team plays better banged up and makes more plays in the passing game – Patriots pass defense, Broncos pass offense – probably the key to this game.”
Turnovers could play a big part in the game, and while the Broncos struggle to win the turnover battle, the Patriots excel at it.
“Patriots take care of the football normally,” Hart said. “They lost the turnover battle last week and that’s one of the reasons they lost in Carolina. Take care of the football against Denver and Denver may give you some extra chances.”
