Video: An early look at Pats-Broncos
January, 9, 2012
The NFL Live crew takes an early look at the Patriots-Broncos matchup. Here is analyst -- and former Patriots defensive coordinator -- Eric Mangini's take:
"The one thing I don't think you're going to see next weekend, is the big plays by the Broncos offense [like that had against the Steelers]. I think what they're going to have to do is show they can have long, sustained drives. And they're going to have to protect the football a lot better than the first time they played them. I'm really looking forward to seeing what adjustments Denver brings into the game, but they also have to understand that Bill Belichick and that defense is going to have some different pitches for this game as well."
