BOSTON (CBS) – The battle on the field has yet to be decided, but there’s one high profile battle off the field where the New England Patriots are crushing the Denver Broncos: social media.

Plenty has been said this week about the unpopularity of the Patriots and their quarterback, but digital media tells a very different story.

When the two teams take the field Sunday, the Patriots will have twice the social media fan power behind them.

We picked a bunch of social media platforms where both teams have official, verified accounts.
