Next Sunday’s AFC Championship Game will feature two familiar foes. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will go head-to-head with long-time rival New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The matchup will be the duo’s third meeting in the AFC title game, with Manning leading the rivalry 2-1. However, Brady leads the series with an 11-5 record including the regular season.
New England will be making its fifth consecutive appearance in the AFC Title game, tying the Oakland Raiders who appeared in the title game from 1973-1977. While playing for the Indianapolis Colts, Manning faced the Patriots three times – part of a three-way tie for most all-time matchups between two teams in the title game. Whether it’s Brady or Manning, whoever quarterbacks their team to a victory for the 2015-2016 Lamar Hunt Trophy, it will be the ninth time either quarterback will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl in the past 15 years.
