Tom Brady vs Peyton Manning: Is the 2016 AFC Championship the final showdown?


The big story this week is about Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning. It's one of - if not the best - rivalries in sports.

Sunday in Denver, the AFC Championship will be the 17th all-time meeting between the two quarterbacks.

Brady's resume includes two MVP titles, and four Super Bowl rings - so far. Brady is currently tied with Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw for the all-time most.

Manning has 5 MVP awards. He's played in three super bowl games and has one ring.

In the post-season, they've split four meetings. Manning is 2-1 against Brady in conference championship games, and perfect at home.
Brady has gone 11-5 against Manning overall.

Don't forget that much has changed over the years.

Brady, the 199th pick in '00, was dragged through the court systems last year with Deflategate. He will turn 39 this August. His first NFL win was in 2001 against Peyton.

Manning was a first round pick in '98 who spent 14 years with the Indianapolis Colts. Now age 39 with the Broncos, he's faced rumors recently about HGH use, and it's expected this will be his last season playing.

Neither quarterback has beaten the other on the road since 2007, and Brady has been 2-6 at Denver when Manning has been part of the Broncos, including an overtime loss while Manning was out with injury during this past regular season.

So, Sunday the stakes are high. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. in the Mile-High City.
