This is going to be an excellent football game. The schedule makers did a great job scheduling this game, especially this late in the season. There is no doubt, the Patriots are an offense first team, while San Francisco is one of the best defensive teams in the league. Tom Brady will be challenged by the San Francsico defense. The Ptriots defense has been better as of late, and will create alot of havoc for Collin Kaepernick. Look for New England to score early, and often and come away with a win in this game.

Prediction: New England Patriots 27-17

The Patriots are nearly a touchdown favorite in this game. New England is listed at -5.5 to start the week. We like San Francisco to stay around for a little bit, but in the end, the defense of the 49ers will wear down, and Brady will continue tossing touchdowns. We are taking the New England Patriots -5.5 in this game.

Pick: New England Patriots -5.5
