Congrats congrats, the Broncos did what the Patriots couldn't by defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers. They won in the most dramatic of ways against a team that they weren't suppose to be able to compete with. Sunday's game was a record-breaker in terms of ratings, and now they're going on the road to play Saturday night while their old coach assists his other old team. It's not Brady or Tebow Time, it's not Tim vs. Tom, it's not Denver vs. McDaniels, it's simply prime time. It's a great time to be a football fan.
Sorry Steeler Nation, but for this Pat's fan is good to be back at probably the best SB Nation site of all the ones I visited during the regular season.
This game will have all the story you could want in it and more. I or someone else will do the Ask a Pat's Fan post later in the week, probably once we get some reports out of practice in. Until then here are the major changes for the Pats between Week 15 and today;
They're at home.
SS Patrick Chung is back.
CB Devin McCourty is now a CB/FS.
LG Logan Mankins suffered a knee injury. Need to wait for practice reports to know more.
ILB Brandon Spikes is back. That would be Mr. Tebow's former teammate from college days.
It's the playoffs. Forget about the regular season stats over the last couple years, the post-season stats are pretty abyssmal.
Oh, and since you guys lost last time, I do believe at least one of you now has to present photographic evidence that the Denver Broncos have an elite cheerleading squad.
