The Magic Number is... 23!

I wanted to see what this game might look like based on the entire season's scores. Remember past performance is not always an indicator of future results, but I offer my money back guarantee.

Average score in Broncos Wins: 23.0 - 18.0

Average score in Bronco Losses: 31.4 - 16.4

Average score in Patriot Wins: 34.2 - 19.9

Average score in Patriot Losses: 27.7 - 22.7

The result: We need to hold them to 23 points or less to win this game. If we don't, it could get out of hand.

How do we hold them to 23? Shorten the game.

How do you shorten a 60-minute game? Slow down and limit the number of possessions. We all know, and have been saying, that we need to run the ball and have no turnovers. The other thing that I recall hurting us in the first Patriots game was the drive-extending penalties on defense. If we hold them on 3rd and 8, there can't be a defensive holding or even an offsides call. Those are killers.

We have a shot to go to the AFC Championship Game, but to do that, we have to make them play our game. And hold them to fewer than 23.
