Patriots vs. Broncos Free Pick
The Broncos will look to spoil the Patriots' perfect season tonight at 8:30PM ET when the two teams clash on Sunday Night Football.

Streaks & Records
The Patriots are 10-0 on the season and 5-3-2 against the spread, while the Broncos are 8-2 overall and 5-5 at the betting window. Denver hasn't covered a spread in three straight games. The Broncos weren't favored by more than 3.5 in any of those three contests.
The Patriots overcome injuries better than any team in the NFL but they're down several key weapons on offense for a matchup against one of the best defenses in the league. CSN New England's Michael Giardi reports that receiver Danny Amendola (knee) is not expected to travel with the team to Denver. The Pats are already without Julian Edelman, so if Amendola is out too then the team is incredibly thin at receiver. If Denver has as much success double-teaming Rob Gronkowski as Buffalo did last Monday night, then Tom Brady could be held somewhat in check. This should be a field-goal game either way.
