Under Bill Belichick the New England Patriots have had good success in defending Peyton Manning. Look for the Patriots to pressure Manning and forcing him out of a rhythm passing the football. He does no throw the football well when on the move and especially when moving to his left in the pocket. Belichick will develop a scheme defensively to make Manning uncomfortable. The Patriots have overcome injuries on both sides of the play with player development. New England has a well balanced offense this year. They run exceptionally well and that was the blueprint in keeping Broncos points totals down as executed by the San Diego Chargers in their two trips to Denver this season. New England has quite a dynamic running game. They are effective running between the tackles with LeGarette Blount and Stevan Ridley. A strong weapon is the speed of running back Shane Vereen to run outside the tackles and that component can really mix up a defense and specifically linebackers who play an important role in run defense. We saw the Patriots roll up 43 points on the Indianapolis Colts defense. New England is facing the 27th ranked passing defense in the NFL in the Broncos so the Patriots will be able to score points in this game. We saw Denver allowing San Diego to get within one score last week as their defense wore down in the later stages of the game. New England’s defense has improved as they have given up an average of 16.3 points per game over their past three contests.
