Another Brady Vs. Manning Showdown Is Upon Us

Tom Brady 8-5 all-time vs Peyton ManningSunday afternoon, the New England Patriots host the Denver Broncos in a rematch of their divisional playoff game of last season, where the Pats won in a rout 45-10.

Nine months later, things are a whole lot different for Denver, as former quarterback Tim Tebow has of course been replaced by the great Peyton Manning.

This contest gives us another classic quarterback matchup of Manning vs. Tom Brady, the NFL's premiere QB rivalry of the last decade. Going into Sunday, Brady owns the upper hand, boasting an 8-5 career head-to-head record, with all those games coming when Manning was a member of the Indianapolis Colts.

Surprisingly, Brady is only 3-6 lifetime against the Broncos, with two of those wins coming just last year. In fact, Denver is the only team the three-time Super Bowl champion has a losing record against.

Let's hope this game lives up to so many of the other great Brady vs. Manning contests.
