Gene Steratore is the referee for the game.
As of Thursday the line on the game from Sports Betting via Yahoo Sports has the Patriots at PLUS 2.5. The over/under is 54.
My Prediction is Broncos 34, Patriots, 27. Give the points (Broncos) and take the over. I am 3-7 against the spread and 4 of 10 on calling the over/under in 2013.
The Patriots are reporting the game as a sell out. It is the 213th consecutive sell out dating back to the 1994 season opener. The record includes preseason, regular season and playoff games.
