There are no two bigger names in the NFL than Manning and Brady, said PrintableBrackets.net spokesperson Zaniel Worth. With both teams fairly evenly-matched, Sunday's game has the potential to be an instant classic."
The Patriots advanced to the AFC Championship Game for the third straight year with a 43-22 pounding of the Indianapolis Colts last week. The Pats are going after their sixth Super Bowl appearance since 2001. Meanwhile, the Broncos held on for a 24-17 win over the San Diego Chargers last Sunday. Manning earned his first playoff win in a Bronco uniform.
The teams squared off in a classic affair in Week 12 this season. The Patriots erased a 24-0 deficit and captured a 34-31 overtime win in Foxboro in November. Brady threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns in the victory. Manning had 150 yards passing with two touchdowns and an interception in the loss.
While Brady has enjoyed no postseason success against little brother Eli, he holds a 2-1 edge on Peyton in their three previous playoff meetings.
Printable Brackets has dozens of NFL brackets and sheets for fans for championship Sunday, including complimentary Super Bowl squares and much more.
While both Manning and Brady are still both playing at a tremendously high level, they are both on the back nine of their careers said Worth. Its a treat for fans of any team to get to see these future Hall of Famers square off again.
