The New England Patriots had a face off with the Denver Broncos in which their team proved to be a failure. This fall came about after Tom Brady’s loss. It was a depressing time for the team and its quarterback.
The two sides were fully armed with their individual players. On one side was Tom Brady while on the other was Peyton Manning. The New England Patriots locked horns with the Denver Broncos. And the latter won much to the disappointment of the former.
Manning was in excellent condition and he played like a superstar. There was nothing which could hold back the better team. And Peyton Manning got his revenge on the Patriots’ coach who had once tortured him during the early days of his sports stint.
"To keep Tom Brady on the sidelines is a good thing," said Manning. "That is something that you try to do when you're playing against the Patriots. It would have been nice to score more TDs than field goals, but it was enough to win."
The Denver Broncos won the game hands down. The score which was 26-16 gave them an advantage that was more than obvious.
On the other hand, Tom Brady let two opportunities go to the dogs when he missed a touchdown twice in a row. It was a defeat that left both the team and their quarterback with their heads hanging in exasperation.
The Denver Broncos are headed to the Super Bowl now. Manning meanwhile wasn’t always the winning athlete he proved himself to be this time around. He has formerly won at the Super Bowl only once.
Maybe the difference in ability between the two players from opposite sides wasn’t as much as it was supposed to be. Luck and circumstance as well as the law of chance all played their part too and swiftly transported the Denver Broncos to victory.
"It is certainly very rewarding when you put a lot of hard work into an offseason, into a regular season and it pays dividends with a huge win," Manning said. "This team has been through a lot, we've overcome a number of obstacles this year, so it is gratifying to be a part of this team. We have kept our nose to the grindstone, kept persevering."
