Two living legend quarterbacks face off as the New England Patriots host the Denver Broncos. Which future Hall of Famer, Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, will prevail?

The New England Patriots will host the Denver Broncos, as two of the greatest quarterbacks go head-to-head once again.

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will square off for the 13th time in their careers, both entering the game at 2-2 through four 2012 NFL regular season games.

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, it's sort of a 50-50 split, but the selections may be the result of what's proverbially being served in cafeteria food at three of the major sports websites. Currently, all ESPN and Yahoo! Sports experts are picking the Patriots to grab a victory in Foxborough, while the men at CBSSports.com unanimously think Manning will cut up the Patriots questionable secondary and earn a very important road victory.

The 4:25 p.m. eastern time game will be shown to a national audience, and is perhaps the most intriguing game of the week with two venerable quarterbacks going back and forth to try and break through the .500 mark
