DENVER, Colo. (WHDH) – The Patriots are headed to Denver for the AFC Championship. Here are 7Sports reporter Rhett Lewis’ keys to the game.

1. LeGarrette Blount. He had a breakout game against the Colts. This week he can lead the run game again and run the clock down.

2. Touchdowns are important. The Broncos offense has shown they can score points so Brady and the Pats offense can’t settle for field goals.

3. Pressure Peyton. The Patriots need to make Manning move and take him to the ground if they want to upset the Broncos passing game.

Rhett Lewis and Joe Amorosino will be in Denver for the weekend. Be sure to check out 7News for the latest information as the AFC Championship approaches.
