'Manning-Brady XIV' on NBC's 'Sunday Night Football'by jmaloni
Peyton Manning and the AFC West-leading Denver Broncos (9-1) travel to Foxborough, Mass., to take on Tom Brady and the AFC East-leading Patriots (7-3), in "Manning-Brady XIV," on NBC's "Sunday Night Football." Coverage begins with "Football Night In America" at 7 p.m. on NBC.
Sunday night's game will mark the 14th time Manning and Brady have faced each other in their careers, including two AFC Championship Games. Brady has won nine of the previous 13 meetings, but Manning has won four of the past seven. Last year, the Patriots beat the Broncos 31-21. Since that game, the Broncos have a record of 20-1 in the regular season. Collectively, the two quarterbacks have combined for more than 100,000 passing yards, 800 touchdowns, and four Super Bowl titles.
Calling Broncos-Patriots is seven-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his 28th season as the voice of the NFL's premier primetime package; 14-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth, who has won the Emmy for Outstanding Event Analyst in each of his four seasons in the "SNF" booth; and Emmy Award-winning sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.
