It is one of the most hotly debated arguments in the history of football, neither side has the advantage, however with this game we could get one puzzle piece closer to solving the riddle that is; Manning vs. Brady. In the 15th meeting of these two bitter rivals, Brady has the advantage in many categories over Manning. For instance Brady has obviously more rings (3), more AFC Championships (5) and more Super Bowl MVPs. However, statistically Manning has shown to be the better QB overall. In Manning’s illustrious career, he has passed for an average of 4,330 yards, 32.7 touchdowns and 368.8 completions per season as compared to Brady’s 4,088.9 yards, 29.9 touchdowns and 348.1 completions per season. But this match-up this Sunday is more than just Manning-Brady, it is a match-up, as Manning said earlier this week, “it is a game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots.” Both of these teams have been considered Super Bowl contenders since the beginning of mid-season, however the debate over who should be in the big game is much more complicated than just the two Quarterbacks. With a revamped rushing offense as of late, LeGarrette Blount and the Patriots have shown to make due with what they have. Brady has been showing that all season long. Even with the injury-ridden offense and defense of the Patriots, New England has still been able to pull off a 12-4 record and a shot at yet another Super Bowl title. In this edition of Previews and Predictions (2nd edition actually, click here to view my NFC Championship version), I will be going over all aspects of what is sure to be an instant classic of an AFC Championship game. So buckle up fans, this is about to get interesting.
