Much has been made of the 17th – and likely final meeting between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. The quarterbacks will oppose each other Sunday in the AFC championship game (12:05 p.m., Ch. 13).
Both are likely future Pro Football Hall of Famers. Technically speaking, quarterbacks actually don’t play against each other. Brady will try to find weaknesses in the Broncos’ defense and Manning will try to do the same against the Patriots.
Still, their meetings always tend toward mythic, so here are statistical looks at how they match up this season, and all time.
