NFL experts weigh in on who they think will win the week 5 matchup between the Broncos and Patriots

The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots will be playing their first and final meeting of the regular season against each other this Sunday when the teams meet for a matinee at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

For the Broncos, it has been a culture-changing season with the addition of quarterback Peyton Manning, but the team hasn't had the success this season they imagined they would. After starting off the season with an impressive victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Broncos struggled in the two games that followed, before dominating the Oakland Raiders last Sunday.

It's been a similar season for the Patriots, who have Super Bowl aspirations every season with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. After winning their first game of the season, the Patriots suffered losses in week 2 and 3, too. However, as the Broncos did, the Patriots are coming off an impressive victory, over the Bills.

With that being said, one of the 2-2 teams in this game will come out with their third victory while the other will receive their third loss. So, who do NFL experts believe have the edge this Sunday?

While only 8 ESPN NFL experts have officially turned in their predictions for the upcoming week, all agree that the Patriots will come out off Sunday with a win. Mike Silver and Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports agree with that belief.

Interestingly, all nine NFL experts on CBS Sports' panel also have the Patriots winning.
