Manning vs Brady Act XV Grand Stage NFL 2014 AFC Championship

Super Bowl or Bust for Manning & Denver Crew

After a record setting year, that saw Denver score more points (606) than the total Jacksonville and Houston posted (247 + 276 = 523), Denver looks to take the next step in their remarkable season. Apart from the major intangible, Brady owning a 10-4 regular season and playoff game edge over Manning, let’s call the QB clash a draw. That’s even though Manning is playing on the best team of his career and Brady has one that’s largely a patch-work project. The biggest edge we see in this contest is the pass catchers. Denver has five players that caught at least 60 passes this season while the Patriots have, are you ready for this, ONE! The Broncos “Big Five” caught 377 passes while the entire Patriots team had 380 receptions. Expect another air show today.

New England Patriots: This is not your Daddies Brady Bunch

Talk about reinventing a football team – that is exactly what has happened in New England. After passing for 36, 39, and 34 touchdowns the last three years, Tom Brady hit pay-dirt through the air just 25 times during the 2013 NFL season. Wes Welker now rocking the Rockies, Rob Gronkowski injured for most of the season, and Aaron Hernandez hanging out in a prison yard, were obviously major factors for the low production. So, in the words of Joe Diffie, “Cause and effect, chain of events – all of the chaos makes perfect sense” the Patriots decided to unleash a power running game on the NFL this season. Four Patriots players combined for 430 carries that netted 2,024 yards – that’s 151 more yards than 1,873 posted by the entire Bronco offense.
