Denver Upsets Pittsburgh in OT; Patriots to Host Broncos in Divisional Playoffs

This evening, the Denver Broncos upset the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-23 in dramatic fashion: Tim Tebow connected with receiver Demaryius Thomas for an 80 yard touchdown on the first play of overtime for the kill.

I'll be the first to admit, although I was rooting for Denver, I didn't give them as much of a chance in this one as I should have, and they proved me wrong. Now, they will get to travel to Foxboro on Saturday to take on the 13-3, #1 seed New England Patriots.

The game will take place at 8:00 PM ET on Saturday, January 14th.

In the first match-up between the Broncos and Patriots, in week 15, the Patriots won in dominating fashion, overcoming a slow start to snag a 41-23 victory. But, that doesn't mean the Patriots can overlook the Broncos in any way. The Broncos gave them a lot of trouble early on in week 15, and as they showed against the Steelers tonight, they are a resilient bunch that can hang with the best that the NFL has to offer.

Of course, we're going to go into all kinds of detail on the Broncos / Patriots match-up throughout this week, but for now, feel free to leave your initial thoughts on the upcoming game and what you think of the Broncos as an opponent.
