After the Broncos beat the Steelers 23–16 on Sunday to advance to the AFC championship game, Peyton Manning channeled his inner Bill Belichick.
“It’ll be the Broncos versus the Patriots,” Manning said in his postgame interview, when asked about facing Tom Brady and next weekend. “To kind of quote Bill Belichick, we’ll be on to New England...but I’ll be talking about them all Wednesday.”
Manning was paying tribute to Belichick’s famous "On to Cincinnati" quote from the 2014 season.
The Broncos and Patriots are set to kick off in Denver at 3:05 p.m. ET on Sunday. It will be the 17th time Manning has faced Brady in his career.
