Sunday’s Patriots vs Broncos live stream online and TV coverage will officially get championship weekend underway! Hollywood couldn’t have written a better script for today’s AFC title game as two of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history will meet up with a trip to Super Bowl 50 on the line. The 2016 NFL playoff live stream and televised coverage will be presented through CBS sports networks.
According to a CBS Sports report, when the 12-4 Patriots and 12-4 Broncos meet up today, it could be the last time that future Hall of Famers Tom Brady and Payton Manning face one another head-to-head. Manning has been injury prone this entire season, yet the veteran QB, who is in his 17th season, has played his best when needed most. Brady on the other hand is playing like a 5th or 6th year starter in the prime of his career – not like a 15-year veteran. Obviously only one team will advance to Super Bowl 50, but it will be a shame to see the loser have to pack it up for the season.
One thing is for sure, the Patriots know what a healthy Manning can do, and head coach Bill Belichick won’t let his team buy into the hype of “Peyton is washed up” for this game one bit. New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels knows that his guy, Tom Brady, has struggled vs. Denver in the Mile High City, however he has confidence in the signal caller.
”Doing the things that you’ve done to get yourself in this position are really important,” Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said. “His preparation, his rest and treatment and getting his body ready and his mind right. He does a lot of the things every day to prepare for the next day.”Even though these games have finality to them that some games in the regular season or preseason don’t have, he approaches it the same way.”
It is safe to say that Tom Brady has been the best quarterback over the last decade, however if he has one weakness it seems to be the mile-high air. Brady is 2-6 in his career at Denver, including a 30-24 loss back on November 29. He also is 1-2 vs.Manning in AFC Championship games. Can Brady lead the Pats to back-to-back Super Bowl championships, or will Manning reach the big game for the second time in three years?
