Tom Brady (left) and Peyton Manning (right)

The Tom Brady–Peyton Manning rivalry was a series of games between two of the greatest quarterbacks in the National Football League (NFL): Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.[1][2][3][4] Brady has played for the New England Patriots since 2000 when he was the 199th pick in the sixth round of the NFL Draft.[5] He has been the starter since 2001, after Drew Bledsoe was injured early in the season, and has been so since, with the exception of the 2008 NFL season when he tore his ACL in the opening game.[6] Manning was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1998 NFL Draft with the number 1 pick and played for the Colts until a neck injury caused him to miss the 2011 NFL season.[7] After the season, Manning signed with the Denver Broncos, whom he played for up to his retirement following the 2015 NFL season.[8]

Rivalry

Manning and Brady have played each other seventeen times,[9] with Brady leading the head-to-head series 11–6, although they tied 5–5 over their last 10 meetings (which encompassed 2006 to 2015). Brady led the Colts–Patriots series 8-4[10] and also led the Broncos-Patriots series 3-2,[11] although Manning's 2 wins with the Broncos were both AFC Championships. Brady led the series in Foxborough 8–2 (7–2 at Gillette Stadium), Manning led the series in Indianapolis/Denver 4–3.[11] The home team won each of the final 7 games, with the last road win for either quarterback in the rivalry coming in Brady's 2007 win at Indianapolis.

The two quarterbacks have met five times in the NFL Playoffs, with Manning leading the playoff series 3–2. Each of the five games were won by the home team. Brady led 2–1 vs. Manning's Colts teams, while Manning's Broncos led 2–0. Four of the five matchups have been in the AFC Championship Game, with Manning having won three of the four, with the winner of those games going on to be the eventual Super Bowl winner, with the exception of the 2013 matchup, one with the Colts and two with the Broncos.[11]
