A.B. If the NFL playoffs started today (through week 14), the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots would hold the #1 and #2 seeds in the AFC, respectively, and have first-round byes. The real question NFL fans in New England want to know, however, is how to win money betting on the Patriots in the playoffs.

The best bet with the Patriots in the 2014 NFL playoffs is to bet New England to win the Super Bowl. The odds right now will be somewhere between 9/1 and 4/1. So if you place $1,000 on the Patriots you have potential winnings of between $4,000-$9,000.

Last weekend a certain picture of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning went viral and was trending like crazy. It wasn't anything scandalous. He wasn't making pizza naked in one of his Papa John's places or beating up on little bunny rabbits or hanging out with terrorists.

Now, Peyton Manning gets a chance to rest. Big question: Does he really need a break? Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers kept Manning on the sideline most of the game and handed the Denver Broncos and unexpected and harmful 27-20 loss Thursday night.
The Denver Broncos shrug off double-digit deficits like Peyton Manning dismisses his cold-weather critics: with a proverbial body slam.
Four times this season the Broncos (11-2) have dug themselves an early hole against a lesser opponent and four times they've climbed right out thanks mostly to a turbo-charged offense that's putting up points at a record pace.
Only Peyton Manning.
A wake-up call, or the sign of something more serious?

Chargers sprung a 27-20 upset Thursday night over the Denver
Denver tight end Jacob Tamme is expected to pick up most of the work at the slot position if Wes Welker is inactive for Thursday's game against San Diego.Fantasy Spin:Tamme saw 45-of-46 snaps after Welker went down last Sunday and caught four balls for 47 yards. Peyton Manning obviously has plenty of confidence in his backup tight end going back to their days in Indianapolis.
The AFC South championship hats were on the chairs and inside the lockers at the Indianapolis Colts facility on Monday.
Winning the division -- their first since 2010 -- and clinching a playoff spot can be crossed off the list. Now the Colts will move on to their next goal of making a run in the playoffs. But in order to reach that goal the Colts have a lot of work ahead of them...

So, the question is, if that happens, should Tom Brady win the MVP? Peyton Manning will no doubt have better numbers than Brady, but was he more valuable to his team than Brady?Short answer...
