Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but the New England Patriots have an AFC Championship Game to play Sunday.
The Patriots are in Denver to take on the Broncos for another Tom Brady-Peyton Manning showdown, as well as their fifth straight championship game. And despite Denver’s home-field advantage, New England is favored to go on to Super Bowl 50.
The Broncos edged the Patriots in their Week 12 meeting, winning 30-24 in overtime. However, New England was missing wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola and linebacker Jamie Collins in that contest, and tight end Rob Gronkowski and linebacker Dont’a Hightower both went down during the game. The real battle this time around will be between Brady and his newly healthy offense and the Broncos’ shutdown defense at home.
Here’s how you can watch Sunday’s AFC Championship Game:
