The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are both 2-2 on the season, but many NFL experts believe the Patriots will earn the victory Sunday when the two teams square off.

The New England Patriots will host the Denver Broncos on Sunday in a game that pits Tom Brady and Peyton Manning against each other for the 13th time in their careers. Both future Hall of Fame quarterbacks will be looking to move their teams above the .500 mark for the season.

So, with both teams coming off blowout victories against division rivals, what do the experts think will occur in this pivotal game for both squads?

Well, in short, they don't see a Broncos victory.

While the game is surely going to be entertaining and probably close, ESPN, Yahoo! Sports and CBS Sports experts all have selected the Patriots to hold home field in Foxborough and move to 3-2 on the season.

The game kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET. It's perhaps the most intriguing game of the week, with the venerable quarterbacks likely to create some nostalgia for when the two played against each other and served up some appointment television.
