Broncos vs. Patriots: 10 Predictions for Saturday's Game

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots face off against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos this Saturday night at 8PM EST in the AFC Divisional round.

Just figured I'd point that out in case you were living under a rock for the last week.

Tebow led the Broncos to a stunning 29-23 overtime win over the reigning AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend, producing a throwing performance for the ages. Surprising, considering Tebow's lack of accuracy and tendency to be a difference-maker as a runner.

Coming into Foxborough, however, we should see Tebow's continued success through the air, as the Pats were ranked 31st in the NFL in both total yards against and passing yards against. 

On the other side of the football, Denver will be relying on sack maestro Elvis Dumervil, and Defensive Rookie of the Year nominee, Von Miller, to harass Brady from the opening gun.

The Patriots are favored by 13.5 for the game, and are looking for their first playoff victory since 2007.

If Tebow wants to continue his improbable run to the Super Bowl, he needs to be flawless. He might be America's favorite athlete, but I doubt there are many who consider him a terrific quarterback, an image he is trying to change this postseason.

A win in Gillette Stadium against the mighty Patriots is just the thing Tebow needs to take the next step in his progression as the rightful starting quarterback for the Broncos.

Let's take a look at five predictions for each team during tomorrow night's heavyweight bout.
