A brief history of the Tom Brady-Peyton Manning rivalry
Tuesday January 19th, 2016

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week ahead of this year’s AFC Championship Game.

The New England Patriots will face the Denver Broncos on Sunday for the right to advance to Super Bowl 50. The game is the 17th meeting between Brady and Manning.

Brady and the Patriots lead Manning 11–5 in head-to-head meetings, four of which have been for the AFC crown.

SI’s Greg Bedard previews the matchup, writing that the Patriots’ adaptable offense will be the reason New England is able to overcome Denver and advance to its second straight Super Bowl.
