The most hyped match-up of the 2014 NFL regular season is here. At 4:25 PM ET, the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos will kick off in a regionally broadcast game on CBS.
It had been snowing all morning and early afternoon, but the precipitation appears to be dying as we reach kick-off. Nonetheless, conditions are expected to be cold and windy.

Let's go Patriots!
