The New England Patriots are headed to Denver to take on the Broncos in the AFC Championship game. In New York City there is already Super Bowl merchandise everywhere and according to one store in New York City, the Patriots have already won and they’re already the AFC Champions.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he thought no one was going to pick them to win the AFC Championship game, but it looks like one New York store has.

“I’m sure no one’s going to pick us to win this week,” said Brady. “We’ve had our backs against the wall for a while. Really, the whole season we’ve lost players, and teams have really counted us out.”

The Broncos are expecting a high-scoring affair, but aren’t willing to concede the match before even playing.

“It’s going to a barnburner,” Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway said.
