The (6-2) New England Patriots travel to face the (3-5) Denver Broncos.
The Patriots come out of the bye week with five of their next six games on the road, including back-to-back high altitude games in Denver and Mexico City, and then a back-to-back-to-back against two division rivals and the current #1 seed Pittsburgh Steelers.
First on the menu is the Denver Broncos, in Denver, the perpetual thorn in Bill Belichick’s side. While the Patriots are the biggest road favorites against the Broncos since 1987, this won’t be an easy game for New England. The Broncos are the only AFC team that boasts a record above .400 against Belichick and the Patriots (four NFC teams do, too: Giants, Panthers, Packers, Seahawks), as Denver holds a 9-9 record.
Those 9 wins by the Broncos are the most against Belichick’s Patriots by a team outside the AFC East, including a 7-4 record in Denver. No other venue comes close to giving the Patriots as many problems as Mile High.
