Mut and Gary get into just how important the dangerous combo of Edelman and Gronk have been to the Patriots recent success. But are they even better than Moss and Welker from 2007? Mut says yes, but Gary says he’ll take Moss and Welker for one season…or possibly even Deion Branch over anyone.

Curran calls the NFL Sunday gang to get into Pats and Broncos. He says pulling Manning won't be an easy decision for Kubiak today, and he's not sure it will ever get to that for Denver. He says that the Broncos need to get pressure on Brady early and often in order to disrupt the Pats' offense. On the other side, it stars with CJ Anderson and Ronnie Hillman and setting the edge which makes Malcom Brown, Alan Branch and Akiem Hicks possibly the most important players for the Patriots on the field today. Tom also gets into Deflategate adding to the Pats' desire to win, James White possibly being a factor today and his thoughts on the NFC side.
Tanguay is obsessed with the way the Pats played at the end of the season and why they didn't go all out for homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.

He thinks Brady and the offense will be fine, and the keys on the other side of the ball are CJ Anderson and Ronnie Hillman for Denver and Collins and Hightower for New England. Ultimately, he thinks Peyton will turn the ball over and lose the game for the Broncos.

The guys take a good look at the Pats offense and how they'll look to attack the best D in the NFL. Price talks about picking up Denver's blitzes and watching out for their LB's putting their hands up to deflect balls. The guys think that Brady will look to use quick strikes and slants all day with Julian Edelman being the true key today.
