The AFC Championship Game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots is underway to see who will earn the right to make the trip to Super Bowl 48.

So far, both teams have had their shots with the ball early, and it’s been the defenses that have been stealing the show thus far.

On the second possession for the Patriots, Tom Brady found out just how difficult today might be for him when he went to take a shot down field.

On a 3rd-and-3 from their own 27-yard line, Brady was looking to take a shot down the right sideline to pick up the first down, but Broncos defensive back Tony Carter was right there to bat the ball down and force the Pats to punt the ball back.

 

This Denver secondary will probably give Brady the most fits than of anyone else he’s faced this season, aside from when these two teams squared off in the regular season.

So far, this is about how this game has gone for Peyton too, with the Pats defensive backs coming up to make some crucial tackles.

We may have a defensive battle brewing.
