Like I said on this week’s show I think this one is going to be a blowout one way or the other. Everyone has been hyping those game all week, but Denver is the better team. When it comes to the Peyton-Brady debate, I’m on team Brady. But beyond Brady, this Pats team is average at best. I see the Broncos getting on a roll right away, and this one gets ugly early.
Pick: Denver 38 New England 17.
San Francisco at Seattle: Seattle -3.5; over 40
The experts are all over the Niners this week. Superior talent. Better head coach. A defense that can shut down Beast Mode. A struggling Russell Wilson… Those are all valid points, but Seattle’s 12th man, as overhyped as it is, is a difference maker. And Russell Wilson didn’t forget how to play quarterback. Seattle will get a defensive TD, and their special teams will give San Fran a long field to play on all game. This is the more exciting game on Sunday, and it will live up to the hype, but the Seahawks will precise.
Pick: Seattle 27 San Francisco 20
