Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots: Let's talk turkey

www.allposters.com

1-5... That's NE's record against the Broncos.  If you're a Broncos fan, it's 5-1, but whatever. I digress.  I like this team, the Broncos that is.  I don't know why.  Maybe it has something to do with HC Mike Shanahan.  I think he's a shotgun full of class and creates an organization that is just as classy.  I don't know, just one blogger's opinion.  At 4-2, the Denver Broncos rank #1 in the AFC West and have a bunch of stats to back that up.  So I don't have to retype, I'll lift these numbers from an answer over at Mile High Report:

At 166 points scored, Denver is second only to SD in the AFC and 6th in the NFL. Passing offense is rated 2nd while running offense is 7th. That’s pretty darn good. One problem I see is point differential (points scored vs. points allowed). Denver sits at 12 which is good, but on average, games are won by less than 2 TDs. On the flip side, your 2 losses weren’t that bad either.

Points...Points...Points...CASSEL?!?!?!  Hear that?  Denver's average point differential is 12.  HIT...RANDY...MOSS!!  Please overthrow Mr. Lanky.  If you turn him inside again, I'm going to blow a gasket.  Our point differential is -20.  Ouch.  Anyway... 

With a Passing Offense rated 2nd, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that we need to shutdown Jay Cutler.  He's at a 64% completion percentage and 282.3 yards per game.  Get him off the field!  Given the troubles of late with our secondary, this might be tough; SD is 6th and they abused our DBs.

Way, way more to come over the coming days.
