Brady-Manning XV. The Legacy Bowl. Peyton’s Revenge.

With anticipation for Sunday’s AFC championship game between Tom Brady’s New England Patriots and Peyton Manning’s Broncos reaching a fever pitch here in Denver, there has been no shortage of labels attached to this clash, one which will determine the conference representative in the Feb. 2 Super Bowl in East Rutherford, N.J.

With Manning, 37, and Brady, 36, entering the twilight of their careers — if not there already — this could be the final time these two do battle, at least on such a big stage. With a Super Bowl berth at stake, it is a matchup of Hall of Famers that should be savoured with every snap.
