How can the Patriots beat the Broncos on Sunday in the AFC Championship Game? Here are former Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown's Keys:
1) Defense must communicate: They must be on the same page against Denver's offense, Brown says. No blown coverages.
2) Get good results on third down: The Pats' offense needs to convert on third downs and the defense needs to get off the field after it.
3) Not where you play, but how you play: It's something that Brown said he heard Tom Brady say this week. The Patriots must not get overwhelmed by the atmosphere or crowd in Denver.
