9:39 am
than 70 homes here on the island that are having some sort of power issues. so they are dealing with that. but crews or snow plows, road crews have done an amazing job. check it out. considering there was probably a foot of snow that fell here on martha's vineyard and oak bluffs where we are right now. so crews worked overnight to morning. they have done outstanding job. only problems right now are just some power outages, and still some pretty decent wind gusts. we are live on martha's vineyard. brandon gunnoe 7 news "today in new england." >> anchor: thank you. back to mainland. boston luck out in terms of snowfall. missing the brunt of it. >> anchor: dodged the bullet. but roads are dicey. danielle is live in downtown boston with a check of the roadways and snowman you have been working on. >> reporter: i have been working on the snowman. i did get myself a shovel. and some help from our trustee photographer.

9:43 am
at that time no eddleman or amendola or gronk. injured in this game. this time braid comes in with offense full strength. ready to pick it out. and manning seen it 16 times before and expects similar today. >> quote belichick, we will object new england. >> tom brady and peyton here before leading up to a 17th and, perhaps, final meeting. high praise from each legendary quarterback you know playing someone 17 times is cool. so especially someone as great as him. >> to play as well as he has over the course of his career with success he has had. and their team's success. i just have a lot of respect for them. >> reporter: quarterbacks have mutual respect but broncos dolling out their fair share of trash talk as well. calling braid a cry baby and promising to go low on gronk. but after recovering from his sprained knee in week 12. gronk has a plan for the rematch. >> they are not doing anything
9:44 am
it is just part of the game. have to be aware of it. step up my game a bit. and maybe throw a he jupe. i don't know how many i have got. >> reporter: everyone kind of expect that is to be the case today with gronk. as we told you earlier in previous half hour. betts out in vegas on patriots side. one casino reporting that 85 percent of all betts on this game were on patriots side. that means all the money is on the patriots side in these casinos they have a lot to lose if patriots win. which is what everyone in new england is hoping for. and, i think, there is more and more patriots fans around the country than they we. reporting live in denver, joe amorosino, 7 news "today in new england." >> anchor: thank you joe for that update. go pats. stay with seven news for continuing coverage live from denver. trey and joe will be live in with your patriot's coverage. >> and still ahead on 7 news "today in new england" this
